In his new book The Leadership Equation, business consultant Eric Douglas reveals a simple but profound equation: Trust + Spark = Leadership Culture. Leaders and managers are most successful when they focus on building trust and sparking innovation.

Eric Douglas, President of Leading Resources, has spent the last 25 years guiding government agencies, non-profits, and corporations through change. In his new book The Leadership Equation: Ten Practices that Build Trust, Spark Innovation and Create High-Performing Organizations he explains in detail how to strengthen the culture of an organization and set it on a path to sustainable growth.

Some of the processes that Douglas describes include:

  • How to avoid the “silo-ization” that plagues large organizations like the VA
  • How to build trust through reciprocal communication
  • How to discover your company’s core values and peg them to a scorecard
  • How to sharpen the organizational focus
  • How to make decisions more data-centric, so it is easier to make tough decisions
  • How to create organization learning loops to achieve change at maximum speed
  • How to prepare for a crisis and build multiple communication pathways
  • How to build a leadership culture, in which everyone “runs it like they own it”

We would be happy to arrange for an interview. In addition, Douglas is available to write a bylined article or blogpost on the subject of leadership, with an especially well-tuned ear to the special problems inherent in government and non-profit agencies.
