When Everyone Leads
By Ed O'Malley and Julia Fabris McBride
“You don't need a title to start leading.”
About this book
When Everyone Leads is not about leadership, at least in the way we normally think about it.
Leadership is not about position, or authority.
It’s not about big speeches or grand visions.
Leadership is engaging others to solve daunting challenges. Those challenges appear in our professional lives, in our communities, our families―and they seem unsolvable, beyond our ability to see what needs to be done or outside our capacity to make the changes needed.
They are not.
Because, leadership is an activity―small actions taken in moments of opportunity. And as you start to look around, you can begin to see more of those moments, seize the opportunity in those moments. Most importantly, you can help others see those opportunities too.
That’s why everyone can lead and the real power to solve our most important challenges is when everyone leads.

“Leadership is a self-authorizing activity. No one else can authorize you to lead. Other people can tell you they want you to lead. They can put you in what they call a "leadership position" (what we call an authority position). But only you can make the intentional decision to try to exercise leadership." (From Chapter 12)

Interviews & Podcasts
Ed discusses how leadership differs from authority, and that authority is required to lead. He explores the disruptive aspects and the risks of leadership. Ed explains the type of problems authority solves and the challenges that require unleashing the leadership of the whole team to move forward. Listen in for how to move forward when faced with daunting challenges.
It's a new way of looking at the concept of leadership: One where the door is open to everyone, where everyone is encouraged to lead, and where leadership is seen as an activity, not a person or a position. This inspiring conversation will help you find a way where you can contribute -- because we need your leadership.
Their book, When Everyone Leads: The Toughest Challenges Get Seen and Solved, offers a revolutionary model that allows everyone to claim the mantle of “leader,” no matter how high up or low down they are on the organizational chart.
