Your chance to win a signed copy of ‘Flat Army’ leadership book by Dan Pontefract

Networking in Van are excited to have two SIGNED copies of Dan Pontefract's book ‘Flat Army‘ to give away! Dan is currently the Head of Learning & Collaboration for TELUS, will be gracing the Art of Leadership Vancouver stage on April 11th and happens to have been my grade 11 soccer coach (no joke!)

Flat Army is receiving rave reviews and is racing up the charts on Amazon. I purchased mine last week and am eagerly awaiting it in the mail.


About Flat Army – Creating a Connected & Engaged Organization

Your people are your most valuable asset, and if you want them to excel (and your profits to soar), you'll need to abandon your traditional command-and-control management style and adopt a collaborative, open leadership approach—one that engages and empowers your people. While this isn't a particularly new idea, many leaders, while they may pay lip service to it, don't really understand what it means. And most of those who do get it lack the skills for putting it into practice. In Flat Army you'll find powerful leadership models and tools that help you challenge yourself and overcome your personal obstacles to change, while pushing the boundaries of organizational change to create a culture of collaboration.

  • Develops an integrated framework incorporating collaboration, open leadership, technologies, and connected learning
  • Shows you how to flatten the organizational pyramid and engage with your peoples in more collaborative and productive ways—without undermining your authority
  • Explains how to deploy a Connected Leader mindset, a Participative Leader Framework, and a Collaborative Leader Action Model
  • Arms you with powerful tools for becoming a more visible leader who demonstrates the qualities and capabilities needed to become an agent of positive change

    Cool. Looking forward to reading some of your favourite leaders.

    A few of mine I write about in the book include Richard Branson, Terry Fox and John McCloy. (who?)

    My favourite leader is Jimmy Pattison. He is the most quiet and unassuming man, and yet he could lead a nation. It is no wonder he is as successful as he is.

    My favourite leader(s) are Richard Branson, Steve Jobs and my Mom!

    Mike Desjardins at ViRTUS Inc. for creating a collaborative team that puts all of the above Flat Army principles into action daily; and Arlene Dickinson

    My grandpa ~ he was an amazing, philanthropic man who was a true leader. Richard Branson also comes to mind.

    My favorite leader is Seth Goden.

    One of my favourite leaders is Emily Murphy (Canadian women’s rights activist and member of the famous five). I also think Vancouverite Mark Brand fits the bill.
