Description

This book is about Leadership, Followership, and Management; what it takes to become a more effective Leader tomorrow than you are today, thus becoming absolutely essential to any employer. This guide includes all 8 Core Competencies of Effective Leadership, which are Delegating, Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Problem Solving/Decision Making, Awareness, Motivation, and Character. Over the past five decades, while serving in the US Military (as a US Army Officer for 23 years) and in Corporate America (as an Executive Coach for 21 years), I have been privileged to work with some of America's most exceptional men and women who were real game changers, self-starters, and effective Leaders and Followers. They all had one thing in common. Either they, or one of their trusted Followers, effectively influenced the actions of others by skillfully using the 8 Core Competencies of Effective Leadership. My purpose in writing this guide is to further the cause of teaching effective Leadership and Followership, to pay tribute to the great men and women I willingly served, and to help you achieve your true career potential. Effective Leaders know the influence they need can only be achieved through the proper and timely application of all 8 Core Competencies of Effective Leadership. The history of America is replete with examples of Leaders who were wise enough, talented enough, and driven enough to realize their shortcomings, and to seek out the best and the brightest Followers they could find to help them become more effective, successful, and rich. I learned that to become absolutely essential to any organization, you must be perceived as someone who can be counted on to consistently produce excellent results by treating everyone with dignity, respect, and kindness. This guide is unique because it; Offers real solutions to problems telling what to do, how to do it, and the tools you'll need Teaches Followership because not everyone wants to be, or will be, a Leader Teaches all 8 Core Competencies of Effective Leadership Teaches how to shape the Conditions for Success in your company, team and family Provides the tactics, techniques and tools you can easily learn today to enhance your career Helps you identify, measure and increase your value added to any employer Contains what you want to know and the top things you didn't realize you needed to know Today, my mission in life is simple; to help you maximize your true career potential by becoming a better Leader and Follower tomorrow than you are today. To that end, consider me your personal coach dedicated to enhancing your career by teaching you how to become absolutely essential to any organization - be it your community, company, church, team or family. The Effective Leader's Guide constitutes the minimum level of fundamental knowledge, skill, and ability essential to maximize your true career potential and become a more Effective Leader and Follower tomorrow than you are today. Effective Leaders and Followers are always learning, seeking new perspectives and advice, constantly taking notes and becoming better and stronger with each passing day. You could wait 30 years and through your experiences gain 50% of what you'll learn here. Or you could reach the next level faster, learning from the struggles of others, coming away with more tactics, techniques, and tools than you could ever use in 10 lifetimes. One thing I know for certain, doing nothing, sitting there and waiting for someone else to train you, is the definition of complacency, which will kill your career.
