How does someone with no prior training and background in professional leadership, armed with only a post-graduate education, succeed in leading people who are far more experienced and inherently know much more about the business?
If this is a challenge you’re facing as a new leader, then this book is for you. You have probably come into the position feeling optimistic, but also intimidated. How can you overcome the insecurity and anxiety of being the one making the decisions? How can you balance being liked with being effective and avoid becoming a “ghost” leader or “dictator” leader? Are there any strategies for developing effective leadership skills?
Effective leadership relies on the ability to engage your followers, and tap into their collective genius. The power is in the collective. In these pages, you will find the tools and strategies to help you overcome your natural fears and anxiety, and get the best out of yourself and your team.
