|About the Book|
This is the leadership book written for the front-line leader. Leadership is the subject of fascination by many and the least understood by most. The very definition of leadership is so controversial that no one approach can be agreed upon. Dr. Shelton makes it clear what leadership is and that front-line leaders are not the same and do not do the same as what top corporate visionary leaders do. Dr. Shelton not only draws from the latest research literature to strengthen leadership principles but uses historical best practices to explain leadership effectiveness.Dr. Shelton has written a terrifically interesting book with lots of good ideas that can be used to build teams, motivate, inspire and build trust. Some of those ideas include:The Physician Rule. use the least radical surgery to cure the problemWhy fear based leadership always failsListening is not the same as hearingPeople who deserve recognition the least, need it the mostDoing nothing wrong is not the same as doing the right thingThe Sheepherder drives - The Sheppard leadsAccountability is not the same as punishmentTwo most destructive leadership characteristics - criticism and angerThe destructive force of leaders - behavior disordersThe book tells it all, why as leaders, your people love you or why they hate you.
