Unplugged — standing on your own feet, playing to your own un-augmented tune rather than being dependent on your hierarchical position — is the foundation of the style of leadership needed to provide true Affective Safety Leadership.

It is also the title of the acclaimed Danish book  “Unplugged – din vej til autentisk ledelse”, roughly equivalent of “Unplugged – your path to authentic leadership”.

As a sample of the broad acclamation and fine reviews, please see Ulla Bechgaard’s review as she gave it five out of six stars in Jyllands Posten, one of Denmark’s largest newspapers. Click here to download the full PDF-version. Additional and very frank peer reviews are found at Saxo.dk.

Pitch from the publisher, Gyldendal Business, Denmark’s largest publishing house:

Unplugged ledelse er til dig, der hellere vil lede gennem personlig autenticitet end organisatorisk magt. Med unplugged ledelse opdager du dig selv, får tingene gjort, kommunikerer forståeligt og laver motiverende aftaler. Du tager dig tid til at lede og udviser den opmærksomhed, der er forudsætningen for, at små uhensigtsmæssigheder ikke udvikler sig til store problemer. Bogen præsenterer de ti erkendelser, som er en forudsætning for at kunne udleve og få succes som den moderne, unplugged leder, der tør gå på scenen uden backingkor og specialeffekter.

For de interesserede og danske er der lavet en 90 minutters workshop, der introducerer bogens 9 råd. Klik og kig for at se Prezi-præsentationen.

Please forgive the Danish. For a brief introduction to the concept of Unplugged leadership in English, please see this blogpost about the first official Unplugged article in the summer of 2011…

A few of the essential topics are summarized in the Mnemonic list giving away some of the most important leadership tools and checklists to an Unplugged leader.

CfL Centre for Leadership offers a bi-annual single-day workshop in Danish on the main topics of the book; please see the calendar, CfL’s program or the PDF flyer describing the training in greater detail (DK).
