Competent Leadership : Presenting the Knowledge to Lead, Along with the Practical Lessons and Experience to Do It Well
A must-read for either an aspiring or experienced leader who wants a straightforward and common sense approach to leading people at any level. Dr. Marshall offers outstanding guidance and advice on how to know yourself better, make quality decisions, and authentically engage with seniors, peers, and direct reports (Thomas M. Cioppa, PhD, Federal Senior Executive Service member and US Army colonel, retired). Dr. Marshalls Competent Leadership provides approachable, expert instruction applicable to both professional and personal lives in both public or private organizations. His experience-infused counsel is spot-on, emboldening the reader by offering simple yet impactful methods to energize leadership. Do not wait to prioritize your own brand of consistent, authentic leadership growth. Start today, and start here. The pages practically turn themselves (Tresa Gowland, senior vice president of account management, Rosetta, a customer engagement agency). Dr. Marshall is an accomplished consultant, teacher, and leader. Now he can add accomplished author to that list. This book is an extremely effective, accessible treatise on leadership. Every reader will find something useful in it and something that can be immediately used. Self-awareness and a sophisticated knowledge of what comprises effective leadership are crucial components for leading in contemporary times. This book delivers on both. Students and practitioners will come away with a solid understanding of their own particular leadership strengths and challenges and what it means to be an effective leader in various contexts (Cheryl Simrell King, PhD, director, Master of Public Administration Program, the Evergreen State College). Dr. Marshall offers a book with good, easily digestible information about leadership. His ability to weave stories from his years of experience with current research on leadership is of value to anyone at any level in an organization. I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to become a better leader (Alannah Bjur, RN, MS; clinical analyst, University of Washington Medical Center).
