(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, February 11, 2019 ) Many think of the “gig economy” as something on the fringes of organizational strategy. But the gig economy is actually a project-based, results-oriented model that can be extremely powerful at the leadership level of any company or organization. Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of Rise of the Gig Leaders: Why Interim Leaders Are Vital In Today’s Organizations by Neil Grant.
In top tiers of business, an interim leader is an experienced senior executive engaged on a fixed-term contract. Business leaders and HR leaders would do well to tap this pool of successful interim leaders as a critical component of their resourcing strategy. Interim leaders are often available immediately, do not require a long orientation period, are compensated by a daily rate without the overhead of a benefits package and are 100 percent focused on delivery without an interest in a permanent role or career aspirations. Interim leaders drive transformational change and are an increasingly sought-after resource. Rise of the Gig Leaders is a groundbreaking book that examines in detail the phenomenon of interim leadership and its benefits, implementation and potential, and includes testimonials from interim leaders as well as executives who have engaged their services, plus case studies of interim projects. It provides a contemporary and thorough review of interim leadership.
