Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Faced with the chaos, demands, and difficult relationships in business today, leaders in every field feel overwhelmed, frustrated
and ineffective. Today's leaders are in LeaderShock! Finally, there's a way out.
Greg Hicks has created the LeaderShock program - a revolutionary new way to lead that's based on seven years of breakthrough research into flourishing leaders and organizational cultures. His award-winning program has shown thousands how to thrive in spite of a worldwide business culture that has us managing from one crisis to the next, fighting forces beyond our control, and taking actions that don't "pay-off." Now it's your turn to thrive.
Unlike other books that prescribe generic leadership traits, this book offers a radically different solution: a practical roadmap of eight behavioral rules you can use regardless of your personality, experience level, organizational culture, gender, or age. Adopt all eight rules and something amazing happens - all those outside forces beyond your control will no longer control you.
Whether you lead a three-person team or a multinational conglomerate, this clear and concise book will show you how to:
- Activate and express "Intentions" to create extraordinary relationships and get the outcomes you really want.
- Use "Recasting" - A surprising and acutely analytical new way to convert stress into strength.
- Create a uniquely accountable and truth-driven culture that excites and motivates your people.
- Become proactive and forceful without overpowering others.
As practical as it is liberating, LeaderShock ...And How to Triumph over It will systematically guide you to find what every leader wants - powerful effectiveness and personal exhilaration. The timing has never been so right.
