Leadership Starts Here
The journey of leadership is one of the most significant endeavors of humanity.
Leadership is important for us to understand as individuals – and essential to the ultimate well-being of our people, organizations, communities, and the world at large.
While our leadership decisions determine the direction and consequences of our life and organizational outcomes, too few leaders have a consistent, congruent, and coherent basis for their choices. Weakness here leads to lack of alignment and agreement on what is most important, and ultimately poorer quality of results in our lives and companies.
This book focuses on answering leadership questions you probably should have asked yourself – but many fine leaders never did. Questions like:
– Where does leadership start?
– What are the most important decisions leaders must make?
– How congruent, consistent, and coherent is our decision-making process?
– Why does our organization achieve less than we expect?
– What are important leadership questions to consistently be asking?
– How do I gauge the alignment of my senior team – in minutes?
– Why are we working harder and achieving less than we should?
– Where do we go for deeper and better insights on leadership?
All of these – and more – are addressed in Leadership Starts Here. You are invited to join us on one of the most valuable journeys every caring, committed, and conscious leader knows they must take – to continually improve themselves, their teams, and their organizations. Only then will their leadership reach its ultimate impact and fulfillment.
