City Lights Bookstore will host a presentation on business leadership by Ron Robinson at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 20.

Even 20 years into this New World economy, people are managed with the traditional 20th Century model of Plan, Organize, Direct and Control, according to Robinson.

He said that’s a model that slows the implementation of critical decisions when speed is a necessity. Using a new model for leading organizations through frequent and demanding change, business owners can achieve greater success, he said.

The book, “A Business of Leaders,” describes what the author learned from losing everything and how he created a business model that assists companies to become nimbler and thrive in today’s new world of continuous uncertainty. Every leadership team implementing the model has created a culture for success with greater capacity, improved business numbers, and market position in the turbulence of the 21st century, Robinson said.

An active speaker on business leadership, Robinson has traveled the globe improving and turning around Fortune 500, mid-sized, and nonprofit organizations.
