Overview

Businesses are not maximising their scientific and technical human capital and are therefore missing out on innovation and growth opportunities. Global risks are intensifying, threatening the wellbeing of our children and future generations. These risks are a result of years of irrational decision-making; the world urgently needs rational thinking and less gut feeling. Having scientific thinkers at the leadership table can turn the tide. This book hopes to inspire business and global leaders to focus on coaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) professionals to become senior leaders within their organisations. It also seeks to empower STEMM professionals everywhere to pursue influential leadership roles and ensure they undertake leadership development programs that specifically cater to their needs. There is tremendous untapped power at the intersection of influential STEMM leadership and the transformation of organisations, and the world. Scientists in Every Boardroom presents the results of extensive research, coaching case studies and interviews on leadership development in the hope that solutions can be found to what seems to be a crisis in rational leadership. It is not about criticising past and current leaders; it is about providing new avenues of leadership that will ensure a better way forward for all organisations and for the future of our planet.

Reviews

Now more than ever does business need rigorous, evidence-based thinking to guide them and society through the crisis of ideologically driven drivel that passes for much political and economic thinking from our supposed leaders. In an accessible, informed fashion, this book with help business do just that. Highly recommended. - Professor Anthony M Grant, Director, Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney This is an important, practical book and one that I would recommend every board puts on its reading list. Fake news is not just confined to the political daily news. Counter-factual information (counter-knowledge) in organisations causes immense damage, results in bad decisions, is costly, and is more common than many organisations would wish to admit. Ruby Campbell's call for greater evidence-based practice is not only timely but one that needs to be taken seriously in all organisations. The lessons and techniques contained in this book should be written on every organisation's walls. - David Wilkinson, Chief Editor, The Oxford Review To secure Australia's health and economy into the future, the leadership of women and men in STEMM is vital. Scientists in Every Boardroom provides much-needed inspiration for all professionals working in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine. - Rozalina Schulze, Founder and CEO, Health Industry Hub The need for systemic thinking and leadership to address the world's 'wicked' problems has never been greater. Ruby Campbell has hit the proverbial 'nail on the head' declining trust in traditional institutions, a world crying out for rational and ethical leadership and an impending tidal wave ready to sweep us away if we don't change. More than that, however, Ruby has set out a cohesive and readily understood way to address the issues. This book is an investment well worth making! - Chris Whelan, Director, The Transformation Initiative Such an insightful read into what leadership needs to evolve into. Covering multiple and often forgotten elements of what it will take to be a successful leader for the future, this book clearly details the logical steps to transition into one while providing scientific evidence and data in an easy-to-read format to support the concepts. This book is a must-read for anyone looking to make a genuine difference moving forwards. - John Poulter, Director, Comstor Australia As Dr Ruby Campbell says, 'the world urgently needs more critical thinking'. This book goes beyond talking about what will drive a profit for business but considers the type of leaders needed to deliver better outcomes for humans on this Earth. Both inspirational and useful, Ruby's thinking will help individuals, organisations and nations achieve better results, for this and future generations, through a new wave of leadership. - Jen Marshall, Chief Product Officer, Isentia Australi
