Book cover for the book OPUS

Is your senior leadership team fully aligned and ready for fast-paced change?

Even the most cohesive teams can find themselves derailed by the uncertainty of change. High workloads increase stress, changing priorities cause confusion and the frustration of unresolved differences of opinion creates tension and division in teams.

Join thousands of leaders and teams who have already benefitted from revealing the hidden dynamics of their non-verbal behaviour and discover how you too can use it to align your team, reduce stress, increase understanding and resolve differences of opinion with more trust and transparency so your team:

• Is full of vitality and vigour, excited about possibilities
• Has clear objectives, pulling seamlessly together in one direction
• Knows exactly what to think, say and do to get the best from each other

Drawing on a decade of Equine Facilitated Leadership to fine-tune the skills of leaders and teams, Opus reveals the 12 hidden dynamics that every team needs to make visible to achieve optimal team performance.

‘An uncertain landscape has become the one certainty for business and good leadership has become even more important. This book is for all those who want to ensure they can lead their organisations through these challenging times.’ – Ian O’Donnell, MBE

The rapid advancement of technology has fuelled fast-paced change in business, creating a high-performance culture that requires leaders to be resilient, agile and results-focused. But the increased level of uncertainty and an ever-expanding workload often create stress, overwhelm, fear and polarization, leading to disconnection. The world never stops, and when people get caught in the same trap they risk burning out.

In Leading Through Uncertainty, leadership expert Jude Jennison explores the challenges leaders face as human beings in a technological world, the new habits and behaviours they need to adapt to re-connect on a human to human basis, and the leadership qualities they need to lead through uncertainty.

This is a call to return to the core of humanity to find the natural human characteristics of communication, connection, compassion and community, drawing on the experience of working with a herd of horses to understand the impact of non-verbal communication on leadership.

Leadership happens out of the comfort zone. When you don’t know what to think, say or do, it’s time to step up and lead. You need to let go of your fears and be inspiring and courageous, even when you don’t know-how. Easier said than done.

Jude Jennison shares her extraordinary story of bringing Leadership with Horses into business, only six months after overcoming her fear of horses. She explores seven leadership lessons that individuals and businesses learn from working with the horses and maps them back to real-life situations.

If you want to end the struggle of leadership and find ways to deal with challenging situations and people, pick up this book. Expect to be challenged and provoked into exploring your impact at a greater depth.

This is a book to return to repeatedly as you fine-tune your leadership.
