The Leader’s Pocket Guide provides readers with concise, on-the-job expertise to inspire and direct them on their professional journey.

Organized into three easy-reference sections—Self, Colleagues, and Organization—the book supplies readers with tactical tips on how to:

• Deliver Inspiration

• Demonstrate character

• Develop confidence

• Communicate with authority

• Think critically

• Foster innovation

• Connect with others

• Resolve conflicts

• Add buzz to their leadership brand

• Coach for development

• Recognize achievement

• Instill company-wide purpose

• Deal with adversity

Augmented by up-to-date research on the role of leaders and the expectations followers have for them, this pithy, powerful, and portable guide contains energizing action tips, self-assessments, and “Think About…” sections to spur readers on to reach continuously greater heights of leadership excellence.
