Description - The Languages of Leadership: How to Use Your Words, Actions and Behaviours to Influence Your Team,Peers and Boss by Wendy Born
Many of us have issues trying to lead disparate teams with multiple personalities, colleagues with conflicting agendas and bosses with minds of their own. The questions we often ask ourselves are:
* How do I manage my team leaders to work together without having to reinvent the wheel, to learn from and leverage each other's experience without getting competitive, and to be more effective in managing the performance of their own teams?
* How do I manage my peers to have productive and positive relationships, to make decisions more effectively without being dragged into the detail or office politics and to be more focused putting aside individual agendas?
* How do I manage my leader to stop making big promises to my team that I know they won't deliver on, to give me the space I need to get my job done and to be open to my ideas and be willing to support them?
Once upon a time, it was enough just to lead your team and that was it. But organisations today are more complex, departments are vast, reporting structures are multi-faceted. As leaders, we are expected to manage so many different relationships at so many different levels in an organisation, that it can feel as if we need multiple personalities just to stay sane.
Even if you really like your job and the people you work with, there are so many things that need to get fixed. You can see the potential of the organisation, your function and your people, if only you could all get out of the way and get things done!
The answer is to learn to master the languages of leadership. This will ensure you become an active, directive and perceptive leader, with the skills to influence and lead in today's workplace.
Packed with simple, practical tools and techniques you can action and implement every day, this book will teach you to make small changes that will have a big impact, both individually and organisationally.
When you learn to balance the languages of leadership you start to get yourself noticed, to manage anyone at any level and to build your reputation in the market as one of the best leaders in your industry.
