Leadershipnow / The Best Leadership Books of 2008 Taking over the top job, whether it's the CEO of a company or the manager of a department, is never easy. When done the right way, it results in inspired leadership; when done the wrong way, it can lead to disaster. To be effective, the people in charge must give their team a reason to believe in their talents and their ability to get people to work together. Great leadership requires decisiveness, authority, conviction, compassion, and, most important, the ability to set the right example. It would seem easy, but it takes a lifetime of trying to put it into practice. In "Lead by Example," recognized leadership guru John Baldoni reveals the traits and abilities leaders need to know to inspire others to follow them. Readers will learn how to: listen for ideas - manage around obstacles - defuse tension - check their egos - stand up for what they believe in - manage crises - develop team confidence - recruit good people - deliver bad news - handle defeat - engage their enemies Filled with examples of visionary leaders who have overcome their shortcomings and achieved greatness, "Lead by Example" will show readers how to build trust, drive results, and win the respect of the people they lead.

From the Back Cover:

Baldoni’s insights are easy to understand and absolutely on target for the requirements of a modern-day leader.”

— Jim Moore, former Chief Learning Officer, BellSouth, Nortel, and Sun Microsystems

“John Baldoni has a distinct ability to peel away the complexities of leadership and deliver truly practical advice. His deeply useful ideas will resonate with managers at all organizational levels.”

— Paul Michelman, Director of Content, Harvard Business Digital, Harvard Business Publishing

“A new book by John Baldoni is an event, and this one may be the best of all. It’s packed with content (principles and stories) written so that the lessons are incredibly easy to absorb and remember. It will be a classic.”

— David Maister, preeminent authority on the management of professional service firms and author, First Among Equals and Trusted Advisor

“Lead by Example takes a unique approach to leadership. While most books on leadership focus on the ‘me’ aspect of leadership—how can I be a great leader— Lead by Example offers pragmatic, actionable advice that pinpoints the real power source of great leaders, namely the people that are inspired to ‘follow’ them. Lead by Example will quickly become a must read.”

— Gary Beach, Publisher Emeritus, CIO Magazine

“In a world plagued by headlines of leadership missteps, here’s a book that speaks to how effective leaders are getting it right.”

— Nick Nissley, Ed.D., Executive Director,

The Banff Centre, Leadership Development, Banff, Canada
