Over the past 25 years, we have coached, trained and consulted with thousands of leaders from around the world. During this time, we have seen a dramatic rise in permissive leadership practices, an approach to leading that has leaders abdicating their authority, tolerating inappropriate behaviors and too often working harder than their employees to compensate for performance issues.
We are on a mission to give leaders the power and wisdom to lead. This book was created to give leaders (and organizations!) the insight into what happens when people are expected to just show up and lead, without any training or development. We wanted to share our proven framework that we have used with clients for years to radically change their leadership behavior and impact, giving everyone the opportunity to achieve their full potential as leaders.
Leading With Authority is an approach to leadership mastery that is based on our expertise in personality development, brain organization and development, emotional intelligence and behavioral change, as well as leadership effectiveness and dysfunction. The book sets out in detail our proven development framework and includes real-life examples from our clients to illustrate. It provides leaders (and organizations) with a clear path to follow as they pursue becoming the leader they are meant to be.
