This fast-paced, volatile business climate requires leaders who can keep cool, inspire others to adhere to high standards, produce excellent work, and continuously raise their game. This book delivers the tips you need to lead no matter your position, build high-trust teams, and even inspire accountability among the entitled members of Generation Y. Leadership by Choice shares proven techniques that will help you achieve results in these critical areas of development:
To be a strong leader, your challenge is to find creative ways to be productive and speak with influence. Loaded with actionable strategies and compelling ideas, Leadership by Choice offers a new road map for becoming a leader people want to follow.

"If your aim as a leader is to be more effective, influence and persuade others, and get better results in your position, this book will show you the way."
—Brian Tracy, author of How the Best Leaders Lead
"Leadership, as Eric Papp points out, is always a choice. And that choice begins within, getting in touch with who you are, what you care about, and what you are willing to do. Make that choice to lead, AND read this book because it is full of wisdom (which is practical advice based upon experience). No matter where you are in your leadership journey, you'll find some good ideas in this book that can make you an even better leader."
—Barry Z. Posner, PhD, Accolti Professor of Leadership, Santa Clara University; coauthor of The Leadership Challenge, Credibility, and The Truth About Leadership
"There are nuggets of fresh, practical wisdom in this book that can make you a better leader written by a guy in the trenches—a trainer who has worked with thousands of managers."
—Adrian Gostick, New York Times bestselling author of All In: How the Best Managers Create a Culture of Belief and Drive Big Results
