“Peter’s research at MIT and elsewhere, made accessible in this book, is without doubt going to stretch the mind of many executives searching for new keys to leadership and competitiveness in a hyper connected, and data rich world.”|“Collective minds to generate transformational outcomes is the most effective way for organizations to fight irrelevancy and compete to win. Peter has masterfully depicted proven techniques to increase creativity & collaboration in organizations in this book on Swarm Leadership.”|“Peter Gloor’s insights into the nature of collaborative innovation and leadership of collaborative networks have had a profound influence on the work of bringing network organizational models to life in health care. His ideas have been a touchstone for reflection and learning. The book will serve as a practical guide for anyone interested in applying these concepts.”|“Grounded by years of the author’s research at MIT and elsewhere, this book explains how the social physics of interaction shapes our collective mind and how everyone can become a leader of their own swarm.”|The author explains how to communicate to bring together groups, or swarms, of people to innovate, showing how better communication leads to better collaboration and more innovation. He describes how to become the leader of a swarm by building its collective consciousness, channeling its energies toward collaboration. He puts forth a five-layer model of collaboration beginning with four key principles of social quantum physics—empathy leading to entanglement, and reflection leading to reboot and refocus—followed by tracking collaboration using the signals of central leadership, rotating leadership, balanced contribution, responsiveness, honest sentiment, and shared context. Then, team members can apply the laws of collaboration: transparency, fairness, honesty, forgiveness, and listening. He also details how to recruit and build an intrinsically motivated group for collaboration and innovation and uses examples from different companies for illustration, as well as showing how this style of swarm leadership can be applied by the individual, organization, and society.
