Leadership Step by Step

Book Description

Leadership literature is full of principles and ideas—but they rarely leave the page. Practice is what turns abstract concepts into useful skills.

Leadership Step by Step walks readers through what to do and how to do it in an integrated and comprehensive progression of exercises designed to cultivate key abilities, behaviors, and beliefs through experience. The 22 exercises in this hands-on book help you accomplish the inner work and gain the social skills required for great leadership.

Each chapter opens with a story demonstrating a leadership skill—and then guides you through the process of developing it. From basic solo assignments to advanced leadership practices, you’ll learn to:

    • Build self-awareness
    • Manage emotions
    • Speak in your authentic voice
    • Create meaningful connections
    • Inspire others
    • Lead with empathy
    • Support teammates

    And more Powerful and practical, Leadership Step by Step will start you on the road to success.
