Publisher's Summary

Learn the proven leadership skills and principles of how to become an effective leader and make everyone around you better!

This audiobook contains proven steps and strategies on how to become an effective leader.

Leadership is a combination of skills and knowledge on how to manage people to reach certain goals. Some people think that it involves controlling what other people do. The first lesson that you will learn from this audiobook is that you can never control people’s behavior if they do not want to do what you want. Each person decides what he will do at a given time.

There are a lot of things that a good leader should be. Aside from excelling in his or her field of choice, it is just as important to have excellent interpersonal skills and high emotional quotient in order to deal with people of different personalities. Being persuasive, confident, and flexible are some other traits that a good leader should possess.

This audiobook provides techniques and courses of action for anyone wishing to become a superhuman leader. I hope you take the time to listen through the chapters and integrate the insights you’ve gained into your day-to-day affairs.

Here’s what you’ll find in the audiobook:

  • How to be a great leader
  • Improve your communication skills
  • Stay motivated during the process
  • Build trust with followers
  • Effective time management and dealing with stress while being a leader
  • Leadership mistakes to avoid
  • And much more

A leader merely influences his or her followers’ actions. A leader makes his or her followers believe that what they are doing is beneficial to others, to the organization, or to themselves. This audiobook shows you what qualities you need to have and what skills you need to gain to become an effective leader.

There is already a great leader within you. If you are willing to discover the superpowers that will make you a great leader in any given situation, this audiobook is for you.

Finding balance in leadership.

I wanted this book to be as powerful and transformative as Extreme Ownership. I have begun listening to the Audible version today after waiting so long since finishing Extreme Ownership. It is rare for an audio book to be so well delivered by the authors, but these guys nail it

Such Dare to Build Trust

I wrote some books myself regarding different topics so I know how much work has been but to make a guide like this. The information is a bit confusing if you are new to the entire software but it really helps you improve your skills.

Best self-help book.

I've listen lot of leadership books, and this one is truly a game changer. I first came across the concept of above and below the line when a colleague introduced me to a short video from the Conscious Leadership group called: "Locating Yourself: A Key to Conscious Leadership.

I've listen a lot of leadership books, and this one is truly a game changer. The Awakening I have had for myself has been transformational. I lead my business and coach CEOs and their teams with more curiosity, noticing when I am motivated by fear

Easy to listen and very interesting

For college students, it may not be an interest unless mandatory for class but it taught me a lot about my own personal leadership styles and how I can work on more to be a better person and leader for the future.

Great perspectives on leadership

I'm reading these texts for a leadership course and they are very interesting articles. They can be very useful for learning leadership techniques that people can use in their everyday lives but are biased towards business and organizational leadership instead of social or Civic leadership

Easy to listen and very interesting

I had to have this book for my summer class and despite my dread of having to read it in the first place, it gives some great examples, theories, and information about leadership. For college students, it may not be an interest unless mandatory for class but it taught me a lot about my own personal leadership styles and how I can work on more to be a better person and leader for the future

A deeper attention to fundamentals!!

The chapters are short for people like me who are easily distracted and even though I am not a poke player I could understand the analogies that were throughout the book. I would recommend this book to any one it was helpful and usefull. Most importantly it showed you the true qualities of a leader

Leadership best tips.

It is possible to acquire leadership skills. We all have abilities to become leaders just as we all have certain provisions for singing or running. Some are better than others, but each person has a basic ability that can be improved through training or practice.

Inspiring for change agents

The book was well written and interesting to read. The concepts on what will make a difference in an organization vs. ineffective tools and personalities was insightful and a good reference to look back on when trying to implement change within your organization. I'm a consultant and was thrown into change management position. This book has been a lifesaver. I've used it countless times to remind myself what to do and to draft materials for my client. I wish there were more in here on metrics; the text doesn't have many practical tips on evaluating implementation and setting performance measures
