What makes a great leader? Confidence? Trust? Vision? The ability to inspire? The answer is complex, yet it’s something that can be learned. The good news is that most great leaders are made, not born, and many of the characteristics associated with effective leadership can be assessed, trained, and developed.
Based on the best-selling seminar by the American Management Association, Preparing for Leadership gives you practical advice for how to:
• Get noticed by learning how to act and talk like a leader.
• Become an expert teambuilder, coach, and communicator.
• Gain and use power and influence positively.
• Guard against the pitfalls of intraorganizational politics.
• Identify and build strategic alliances.
• Elicit support.
• Motivate others.
Containing practical tools including assessments, tips, and checklists, Preparing for Leadership shows you how to take your organizations into the future, inspire everyone around you...and achieve way beyond what is expected!
