The Leadership Contract Field Guide provides a practical blueprint for implementing the Leadership Contract. Reading is one thing, but new ideas cannot be useful until they are put into practice—so now it is time to commit. Review the major tenets of great leadership, internalize them, and look around at your organization; what does your organization currently need the most? Where is the clear deficit? What do your people most need right now to work to their full potential? That's where you start. Decisions? Make them. Obligations? Fulfill them. Hard work? Toughen up. Leadership is a privilege and a responsibility, and this book shows you how to move from conceptualizing “great leadership” into practicing great leadership—starting today.
This guide summarizes what you learned in The Leadership Contract, and integrates that knowledge into real-world actions that make you more effective, while new discussion on accountability draws from research and case studies from major organizations to give you fresh perspective and valuable insight. The result is a clear roadmap to high performance, and you're standing on the starting line—are you ready to go?
