When faced with complex challenges or uncertain outcomes, many leaders believe that if they are smart enough, work hard enough, or turn to the best management tools, they will be able to find the right answer, predict and plan for the future, and break down tasks to produce controllable outcomes. But, what are leaders to do when this isn't the case?In complex situations, prediction, control, and the right answer are illusions. Rather than offering one-size-fits-all tips and tricks in pursuit of these mirages, Simple Habits for Complex Times provides three integral practices that enable leaders.

Haven't seen any // leaders \\ about in many a year. Seen plenty of CEOs who offshore jobs and/or bring in foreign visa workers, or replace all their American workers with undocumented workers, but haven't seen any other forms of // innovation \\ out there, and since the latest supposed jobs numbers state that only 1,000 out of 280,000 new jobs went to people born in America, the leaders appear to be doing the same.
