9780002571982: The Tools of Leadership

A practical, compelling and snappy guide to successful leadership by the author of The Tao of Coaching.

Succeeders in business are by definition good leaders. And most of us lead something at some point – whether a company, a sports team, a family or an outing with friends. At the very least we lead ourselves, and psychologists tell us that creating things, or leading initiatives, is important for our mental health. So how do we do it?

The heart of leadership can be summed up in a simple formula:
Leadership = Vision x Inspiration x Momentum (or VIM).
Strong leaders have the brain-power to paint an attractive picture of where the group/project/company should head, the interpersonal skills to inspire other people to join in and the navigational skills to sustain the required momentum. They need to apply these skills in two arenas: the strategic – dealing with specific projects; and the cultural – relating to the broader values and style of the organization.

The Tools of Leadership shows you how to achieve these goals using simple tools, tips and techniques that really work. Enlivened by cartoons and illustrations, the short, snappy chapters are succinct and easily digested, with practical lessons woven into an entertaining story about one man’s quest for first-class leadership skills.

This is a clear and accessible guide for all leaders of teams, departments, divisions and corporations, as well as managers who aspire to be true leaders and their more junior colleagues who aspire to management positions.
