Stepping Stones of Leadership (Paperback)
Leadership is like parenting as there isn't an actual manual on it. Becoming an effective leader is a process. You learn and get better as you gain more experience. Experience is an excellent teacher. There are many books and seminars on this topic because it is such a fluid topic. Most book, seminar, webcast, etc. out there is by a well-known person that was an effective leader. Their teachings are based on their experiences. Plus, many of these are directed to large organizations. Well, the "Stepping Stones of Leadership" was written by an average person. This book is based on the author's experiences and what he believed to be the foundation of leadership throughout my 25+ years of becoming an effective leader. Looking back, believing he transitioned from being more of a boss to a leader. This book is for both the experienced leader and a person just entering into the position. Too often, people are thrown into leadership roles based on their performance with little knowledge of being an effective leader. There is a "stepping stone" dedicated to the basic things a new leader should know. The book is full of examples and actual stories to support each topic.
