About the Book
Often people are promoted to levels of leadership because of their technical skills. However, it takes more than your competence to lead. It requires technical skills and soft skills - human skills. It requires you to communicate effectively, to build trust, to be agile in an ever-changing climate while being committed to learning and growth.
This guide is for first time leaders, emerging leaders, or anyone who finds themselves stressed out with the various personalities on their team. Learn practical strategies to expand your influence, minimize your frustration, lead with more confidence, clarity and ease in this new modern workplace.
"We all serve as leaders at some point in our lives and this book is an outstanding guide.”
This is a timely, thoughtful and practical book for emerging leaders. I truly loved the idea of leadership skills being necessary to influence the sphere we are called to impact. This book shared some key points that can build or derail leaders- such as productivity, uniqueness, and vision. We all serve as leaders at some point in our lives and this book is an outstanding guide.”
