Product description


In an age of disruption in every aspect of our professional and personal lives, effective and positive leadership has become essential to meet the challenges of modern business. While technology continues to reshape our world, human nature remains the same. The key to real success for today's leader is to be adaptive to change and building organisational cultures that nurture innovation, personal growth and diversity.

The rhythm effect provides a practical framework for leaders to meet the challenges and considerable opportunities in today's business world. Paul's personal account of his experience as a sportsperson, corporate leader and motivational speaker provides a unique insight into understanding how to apply life lessons, experiences and personal strengths into being a dynamic high performing empathetic leader.

Paul's reflections on his life and career provide the reader with an easy to read insightful text with practical examples of the power and application of rhythm in life and work that is accessible to everyone.

The Rhythm Effect provides established and developing leaders with a comprehensive framework based on the power of rhythm to enable the development of successful businesses built on positive culture and high performing motivated independent teams.

David Cruttenden, Senior Media and Broadcast Consultant, Former ABC Director of Resources

We've all seen them, most of us have felt their wrath. The proponents of the 'try-harder' mindset, with just the one trick in their kitbag, seeking to exhort greater effort from already exhausted bodies and minds.

This mindset has been carried from generation to generation, coach to coach, leader to leader. Many of us have become them. But in my experience, 30 years in elite sport, nothing good happens when people are pushed to exhaustion. Fun is replaced by fear.

Yes, effort is required, but it is only a ticket to the game. I also learned that sport is not team vs team, or club vs club, it is system vs system. We need a better system to elicit higher performance.

In your hand is the system. It is built on the lived experience. The best of business. The best of sport. Immediately accessible and applicable. It is a leader's leadership tool kit.

Paul Farina's The Rhythm Effect is the system you and your team needs to build teams and organisations based on insight and understanding, the stuff that matters.

And that's when the fun starts.

Cameron Schwab, CEO & Founder, designCEO

The Rhythm Effect is a unique approach to Leading High Performing Cultures. The frameworks allow practical implementation for leaders to be their best in establishing an environment where team members can be winners. Leaders are under tremendous pressure to deliver results, many making the mistake of throwing more hours and more resources to deliver them. Paul proposes an alternative that is both inspirational and pragmatic for leaders of all backgrounds and experience levels. The utilisation of Rhythm as a performance concept is an exciting prospect in our contemporary business environment.
