Renowned leadership coach Yeo Chuen Chuen's 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility: How to Lead and Inspire in the Real World is the perfect book for those getting into or struggling with leadership in today's ever-changing business world and society in general, including the non-profit sector. Yeo promotes the Re4 Coaching Model, which helps leaders see their problems in new ways, and helps them learn to resolve these using a practical, individualized approach. Old forms are tossed out in favor of new ways to lead. Instead of relying on outdated leadership paradigms, each would-be leader, or struggling leader, should take a look at themselves, discover their own strengths and style, and implement change this way. In clear-cut, real-life examples, Yeo shows how to navigate the waters between two paradoxes. The answers are there, and this book will help you find and understand them.
The author writes in a way that makes complex ideas easy to understand, regardless of what your leadership skills are or have been. It's not about how you used to do things. It's how you can do them from this point forward. Change isn't always easy, but the author gives examples to show how possible and easy it is. Leadership has been a one-size-fits-all concept, but it shouldn't be. Each leader, company, and organization has unique needs. The questionnaires and worksheet questions help you think about what has been working for you, and what hasn't, and how you can incorporate Re4 into your day-to-day leadership tasks. I recommend 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility to anyone searching for new ways to solve problems in today's world, and to rethink the way they've been going about their business.

"This book is a must-read companion book for all leaders who want to be more effective and strategic. It’s so easy to take action once you see things differently. "
"The stories here illustrate how every leadership paradox can be solved using Chuen Chuen's coaching model. I see so much potential for workplaces to become more productive and businesses more profitable by using Chuen Chuen’s model. "
"Being agile often means to simplify our processes instead of adding more layers. This book for me, has done it. Other than giving names to some of the paradoxes I personally face, the coaching model Chuen Chuen has developed accelerated the process of shifting my mindset."
"Chuen Chuen’s coaching model is simple and practical, the anecdotal examples are true-to-life which one can easily relate and adopt. I highly recommend this book to anyone who acknowledges the challenge, and desires a guide to embrace effective agile leadership in their everyday life."
"I especially like how Chuen Chuen used metaphors with clients to help them put their finger on a complex situation in a simple way. The quest for simplicity is even more pressing now than ever before when we are swamped with more information than we could digest. "
"After reading the excerpt I decided this was one book I wanted to read rather than just adding to my wish list. Many books I end up buying but not reading, but the concise, easy to digest style appealed as did the opportunity to understand paradoxes faced by others. The book lived up to expectations. The exercise are nicely packaged into section 3 with further detail for those who want it, meaning that I could swiftly make my way through the first two sections knowing I could go deeper if needed. Well worth the read."
