Reality-Based Leadership : Ditch the Drama, Restore Sanity to the Workplace, and Turn Excuses into Results Hardback
by Cy Wakeman
Leadership strategies grounded in reality and focused on results Recent polls show that 71% of workers think about quitting their jobs every day.
That number would be shocking-if people actually were quitting.
Worse, they go to work, punching time clocks and collecting pay checks, while completely checked out emotionally.
In Reality-Based Leadership, expert Fast Company blogger Cy Wakeman reveals how to be the kind of leader who changes the way people think about and perceive their circumstances-one who deals with the facts, clarifies roles, gives clear and direct feedback, and insists that everyone do the same-without drama or defensiveness. Filled with dynamic examples, innovative tools, and diagnostic tests, this book shows you how to become a Reality-Based Leader, revealing how to: * Uncover destructive thought patterns with yourself and others * Diffuse drama and lead the person in front of you * Stop managing and start leading, empowering others to focus on facts and think for themselves Equipped with a facts-based, confident approach, you will free yourself from the frustrations you face at work and transform yourself into a Reality-Based Leader, with the ability to liberate and inspire others.
