Back Cover Copy

Think you can spot the leaders in your company? Don't assume that you can identify them by their positions.

What about the service rep who forges bonds with customers . . . the tech wiz who cheerfully troubleshoots any problem . . . the coworker who inspires a team to achieve more than they ever expected? These are not just good employees. They are hidden leaders, driven by caring, ingenuity, and a strong desire for results.

Packed with powerful examples and interactive tools, The Hidden Leader helps you recognize and cultivate these talented but underutilized employees. The book opens your eyes to the vast potential of people working right now, right beneath your line of sight. Find them, nurture them--and watch what happens to your bottom line!

Advance Praise for The Hidden Leader

"Leaders come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes where you least expect to find them. We often look upward to position and title for leadership, but Edinger and Sain explain how to find it everywhere in your company, from the front line to supervisors and managers who aren't traditionally thought of as company leaders. I hear a lot of CEOs talk about not having enough true leaders in their business . . . The Hidden Leader will show you how to find and develop them everywhere." -- Joe Brancucci, President and CEO, GTE Financial

"Having every employee in a company behave like an owner is a competitive advantage, and the keys to making that happen are found in The Hidden Leader. If you are interested in creating a culture where leadership flourishes in every part of your business, read this book." -- Jake Orville, President and CEO, Cleveland HeartLab

"Finally a book that illustrates what we have been teaching: You don't have to be in a formal leadership role or have a leadership title to be a leader. The insights delivered in The Hidden Leader provide clarity about how to identify and develop leadership skills at all levels of an organization, not only at the top." -- Mary B. Coburn, Vice President for Student Affairs, Florida State University

"Too often leaders focus only on their senior managers. Edinger and Sain have recognized the value of leaders at all levels of the business. The Hidden Leader makes leadership accessible and beneficial for everyone, regardless of their position or title." -- Joe Robinson, President, Catapult
