9780071465014: Leading From the Front: No-Excuse Leadership Tactics for Women

Ask yourself honestly, is your professional life going according to plan? If you are not developing your leadership skills, there is an essential element missing from your efforts for success. Leading from the Front will show you how to start leading your life rather than allowing your life to lead you.

Many women have never received formal leadership training. They weren't taught to be decisive, commanding, and ready to take risks. But it's never too late to change. Angie Morgan and Courtney Lynch weren't born leaders-they became leaders during their years in the U.S. Marine Corps, enduring some of the toughest training on earth. Now they pass the leadership know-how and experience from that training on to you.

Drawing on their years as Marine Corps officers and successful private consultants, Morgan and Lynch deliver 10 key practices to becoming a powerful leader. You'll improve your decision making, focus, and performance as you learn to

  • Set an inspiring example
  • Think fast on your feet
  • Stop making excuses
  • Take care of your team (so they'll take care of you)
  • Respond without overreacting
  • Stay cool while dealing with crises
  • Have the courage to achieve your goals

Learn how to effectively take on any challenge that comes your way-with the confidence you need to lead like the toughest Marine, but with a woman's touch.

From the Back Cover:

Marine Corps Confidence Without the Boot Camp

“Learning to lead is important for all women. Leadership skills help you make a difference at work, at home, and in your community. Leading from the Front provides women with 10 relevant principles that will complement any leadership style.”-Senator Elizabeth Dole

Leading from the Front is a brilliant, original, practical, profound, human, energetic book written by two remarkable women. It's one of the best books on leadership published in the last several years.”-Tom Peters

“This engaging book packed with stories from women of courage can help build women with confidence.”-Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School Professor and bestselling author of Confidence: How Winning Streaks and Losing Streaks Begin and End

Leading from the Front provides the reader an insider's view of each woman's experiences in America's ultimate boy's club-the United States Marines.”-Gail Evans, author of the bestselling business book Play Like a Man, Win Like a Woman, and former Executive Vice President, CNN

“Women and men can benefit tremendously from the leadership skills Angie and Courtney learned as Marines. They have captured the essence of leadership versus management.”-Dave Gagnon, Senior Vice President, North America Company Operations and Training, Burger King Corporation

“I never thought about women becoming business leaders through joining the Marine Corps, but how terrific that Angie and Courtney not only found and honed their own leadership skills that way, but also codified their learnings for the rest of us.”-Betty Spence, Ph.D., President, National Association for Female Executives
