About this item

Explains how to develop true leadership potential, describing those qualities that exemplify a true leader and offering tips and strategies for team-building, decision-making, and encouraging others

Yogi Berra said that leading is easy, the hard part is getting people to follow. Never were truer words spoken. As anybody who's ever been in a leadership position knows, eliciting cooperation from a group of people of any size--from a project team to an army--can be like trying to tap dance on quick sand. And while leadership definitely comes easier to some people, it isn't something you have to be born with. In fact, as the authors of this step-by-step guide to becoming a leader demonstrate, leaders are made, not born, and just about anybody can become an effective leader.

Whether you aspire to being a leader, have had leadership thrust upon you, or are already a leader and want to be better at it, "Leadership For Dummies" is for you. Short on theory and long on practical strategies and surefire techniques, it arms you with what you need to: Build and flex your leadership musclesSee opportunity amid change and crisisDevelop your own leadership styleLead with communication, encouragement, and promotionRecognize the ten telltale behaviors of true leadersEarn greater respect, success, and recognition
