“What makes a good leader?” I was asked across a dinner table. I have been thinking and researching about this for the last 15 years. It even resulted in my writing a book “The Leading Edge – Manager’s Guide to Success” published by Wiley & Sons. Just recently I had the pleasure of working in a leadership think tank with two great New Zealand Leaders, George Hickton and Don Tricker. They shared with me their viewpoint that one needs to separate those leadership traits that need to be in your DNA from those skills that can be learnt.
This working guide covers the eight traits that need to be in your DNA if you wish to lead large teams and fifteen skills that can be learnt. The working guide contains 30 pages designed to help readers to understand how far their current leadership behaviour traits will take them. The working guide comes with some electronic media, eg: templates, and checklists to assist you appraise your potential. I have spent around US$20,000 researching, writing and testing these working guides. I guarantee, if you purchase, read, and act your leadership potential will be enhanced.
This working guide gives you the answers to the following questions:
- What is leadership?
- What are the qualities that define great leadership?
- What are leadership skills?
- What are the different leadership styles?
- How to be an effective leader?
