Product description


Renowned leadership coach Yeo Chuen Chuen's 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility: How to Lead and Inspire in the Real World is the perfect book for those getting into or struggling with leadership in today's ever-changing business world and society in general, including the non-profit sector. Yeo promotes the Re4 Coaching Model, which helps leaders see their problems in new ways, and helps them learn to resolve these using a practical, individualized approach. Old forms are tossed out in favor of new ways to lead. Instead of relying on outdated leadership paradigms, each would-be leader, or struggling leader, should take a look at themselves, discover their own strengths and style, and implement change this way. In clear-cut, real-life examples, Yeo shows how to navigate the waters between two paradoxes. The answers are there, and this book will help you find and understand them.The author writes in a way that makes complex ideas easy to understand, regardless of what your leadership skills are or have been. It's not about how you used to do things. It's how you can do them from this point forward. Change isn't always easy, but the author gives examples to show how possible and easy it is. Leadership has been a one-size-fits-all concept, but it shouldn't be. Each leader, company, and organization has unique needs. The questionnaires and worksheet questions help you think about what has been working for you, and what hasn't, and how you can incorporate Re4 into your day-to-day leadership tasks. I recommend 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility to anyone searching for new ways to solve problems in today's world, and to rethink the way they've been going about their business.


The 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility provides many relatable, true-to-life anecdotes. Chuen Chuen's Re4 Coaching Model is simple and easy to apply. I highly recommend this book to anyone who acknowledges the challenges of leadership and wants a practical guide to effective, agile leadership.



This book is a must-read for all leaders who want to be impactful and strategic. It's so easy to take action once you see things differently.



I especially like how Chuen Chuen used metaphors with clients to help them put their finger on a complex situation in a simple way. The quest for simplicity is even more pressing now than ever before when we are swamped with more information than we could digest. And I think metaphors stick in people's minds and can serve as timely reminders just when they are slipping back into their old habits again.I also like how Chuen Chuen framed leadership as having to navigate paradoxes. Because too often, we hear of facilitators and coaches exhort leaders to do many things, eg. coach people. It's not that leaders don't want to do all the right things. They just can't, with so many competing demands. What is more helpful is to guide them in thinking how they could find an optimal point between two opposites.Chuen Chuen meticulously documented her experiences with each client for each paradox, so this should serve as a practical guide for a leader wanting to navigate the paradoxes that he faces.


The stories illustrate how every leadership paradox can be navigated using Chuen Chuen's Re4 Coaching Model. With the resulting clear leadership, workplaces can become more productive and businesses more profitable.



About the Author

Yeo Chuen Chuen, Founder of ACESENCE, is a leadership coach honored with international accolades for her outstanding work with clients in over 30 countries across five continents. She is recognized as an invaluable partner in shaping the leadership styles of key executives in Fortune 500 companies. Her years of experience led to the publication of 8 Paradoxes of Leadership Agility, which can help any leader achieve the results of her Fortune 500 clients. Jared Lee, VP of Qatar Airways South East Asia, describes her book as Very relatable and the solutions through the Re4 coaching model were very pragmatic. Tan Li Chow, a HR director for a major pharmaceutical company, says, The book is structured in a very logical manner and took away the awareness that (A)s leaders, what we probably need to do is work on the process, helping our people think better, helping our people do the process better, and it should generate good results sustainably over the long term. Balasubramanian Venkatesh, CEO of Compunet Connections, said I was able to relate to almost all of the eight paradoxes...I don't think any leader would have completed their leadership journey...without actually seeing these paradoxes in their life. I would rate this among one of the few books that have had an impact on me immediately after reading. Satisfied clients describe the coaching experience with her as transformational, life-changing and the only professional development a leader ever needs.
