Build a sense of trust and safety. Unlike mainstream leadership literature which tends to focus mainly on the vision of the leader, this book also focuses on the leader’s ability to build trust and provide a sense of ‘safety’ by ‘holding the space’ in these times of VUCA.
Inspire Ownership-driven Leadership. The Selfless Leader sees the Collective as fellow stakeholders. In times of crisis, ‘self-preservation’ for the Selfless Leader is ‘collective preservation’, seeing the people as an extension of oneself. This book enables a sense of Ownership for you to:

Inspiring a Warrior Mindset
Claudio’s philosophy is built on the Warrior Ethos which serves as a code of conduct laying a framework of values to guide behaviour and a Warrior Mindset. This revolves around:
The mechanics of the philosophy can be described as an Ownership-driven Leadership approach. The starting point is the Ownership Triad.
Owning who you are involves self-acceptance and self-reflection. Owning the result is about accepting the result regardless of the outcome, which is characterised by a no-blame culture. However, owning the mission requires the leader to be both a servant and a warrior. A servant to steward people towards their potential (Steward-Leader), whilst being prepared to take on challenges (Warrior).
