New Release: The Open Organization Leaders Manual (second edition)

Let’s face it: The nature of work is changing. So the way we lead must change with it. 

The community released the next edition of The Open Organization Leaders Manual: A handbook to building innovative and engaged teams on December 11, 2018. 

The book is a collaborative resource from open leaders and Open Org Ambassadors throughout the open source community. Download the book or purchase a print copy.

Jen Kelchner, Founder of LDR21, wrote the introduction to the book and contributed two chapters as well.
