Most leaders think they can just show up and lead. Despite all the research that leaders are developed and not born, few leaders (and organizations) actually look at leading as a profession that requires them to train, gain experience and mastery in order to be effective.
Without training, leaders develop a leadership persona which results in excessive permissiveness or autocratic behaviors as well as other BAD LEADERSHIP HABITS.
So, You Think You Can Lead? challenges the prevailing beliefs in organizations that leaders do not need to develop. It provides a clear, step by step framework to DEVELOP LEADERSHIP AUTHORITY and potency, so that leaders can fully realize their leadership potential.
The book explains what Leading With Authority looks like, the importance of establishing and maintaining leadership authority, and each of the skills and competencies that a leader must master in order to effectively navigate the complexities of leading people.
