Publisher Comments:

A POWERFUL MODEL FOR EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP

 

Are you a badger or a doormat? This may sound like a strange question to ask a leader, but these two caricatures encapsulate the behaviour of leaders who struggle with focusing their time effectively. A ‘Badger Boss’ is busy doing their own thing and is never seen by their team from dawn to dusk; a ‘Doormat Boss’ never gets anything done because they are constantly at the beck and call of other people.

 

Memorable caricatures are used throughout the book to show extreme leadership styles and help you recognise which behaviours to avoid and which to put into practice more often. Rosie Miller’s engaging, easy-to-read book is full of serious advice on how to avoid these extremes and how to be a balanced, focused leader who gets results.

 

Synopsis:

Good leaders think and behave differently from good managers. Find out how to upgrade your thinking habits and how to lead with more impact.

  • Lots of diagnostics and self-coaching questions to help you assess what kind of leader you are now and how best to get to where you want to be
  • Gives you the combined experience of an executive coach and 20 top leaders from a wide range of different contexts
  • Very appealing and attractive style with lots of checklists, summaries, cartoons and illustrations
