 What if what you’ve been taught about leadership is wrong?

With today’s mass amount of information in books, blogs, social media, and videos, many people are calling leadership many things – and much of what they say about leadership is wrong.

This confusion about leadership sets many down a path of mediocre leadership (or worse), and they don’t even realize it – because it’s what they’ve been taught.

Essential Leadership is about clarifying what leadership is and what it takes to be a great leader, whether you are an executive or CEO, a manager, a small business owner, a boss, or even if you don’t have a position but just want to learn how to lead.
Essential Leadership dives into:

  • The basics of what leadership is, its purpose, and the difference between leadership and management
  • The right mentality to have as a leader (and the common ones that you should avoid)
  • The misconceptions many have about leadership (and the truths you need to know)
  • The truth about leadership styles that many miss
  • Why your preferences and strengths don’t matter as much as you think they might
  • How to communicate effectively so that you build greater trust and get greater results
  • How to show appreciation and give feedback effectively
  • The importance of culture and the building blocks of building a great one
  • What it really takes to motivate your employees
  • How to hire and fire well
  • How leaders mess up decision-making, and how to do it well
  • How to run effective meetings
  • How to deal with mistakes the right way
  • The habits and traps that will hurt you as a leader
