Violent mutiny used to be universal in seafaring corporations through the Age of Discovery—so universal, in truth, that facing mutineers used to be a vital ability for captains and different leaders of the time. Mutinies in today’s corporations are a lot quieter, extra social and highbrow, and much much less violent, but the coordinated defiance of authority springs from dissatisfactions similar to these of long-ago shipboard crews. This hugely unique publication mines seafaring logs and different records of 15th- and sixteenth-century send captains and discovers instructive classes for today’s leaders facing demanding situations to their authority in addition to for different contributors of enterprises during which mutinous occasions occur. The booklet starts via studying mutinies opposed to nice explorer captains of the Age of Discovery: Christopher Columbus, Ferdinand Magellan, Sebastian Cabot, and Henry Hudson. The authors then establish classes that marketers, leaders, and different contributors may well practice to organizational insurrections this present day. They locate, unusually, that mutiny could be a strength for strong in a firm, paving the right way to extra collaborative management and more desirable dedication to shared pursuits and values.
