‘Heijn’s curiosity seduces you into thinking for yourself, to make your own rules and take charge.’
Rules and procedures are needed for organisations to function. Written or unwritten, conscious or unconscious, they will never capture every eventuality. So here’s the paradox: we need rules but the ones who break the rules at the right time make all the difference. So what does this mean for organisational leadership? And what does it mean for personal leadership?
The Fearless Monkey is Heijn’s descent into a new perspective on rules and leadership. He dares champion paradox and invites us to embrace it as a tool to think for yourself and act on it.
