Book Description

Love, learn, let go. Three decisions. Three actions. Three habits. Together, these offer leaders insight (Leadersights) into the true nature of leadership and can create the type of workplace that can thrive in a demanding future.

Leadersights: Creating Great Leaders Who Create Great Workplaces focuses on how organizations of all types can create a leader-development system that defines critical leader behaviors, provides simple techniques for building and improving the skills that drive those behaviors, and establishes a mechanism for monitoring and enforcing those behaviors. This book details how leaders can do the same for their employees; defining and promoting behaviors required for sustaining continuous change. In addition, it synthesizes current research on change, servant leadership, group and team dynamics, job satisfaction, intrinsic motivation, psychological flow, and individual self-efficacy.

If you are stuck in a culture of compliance where an increasingly frustrated workforce continues to rely too much on leaders to solve problems, this book will guide you by:

  • Focusing on the critical few leadership skills that provide better results
  • Demonstrating proven improvement techniques, tools, and structures for higher satisfaction levels in colleagues   
  • Offering a new leadership model blending existing theories into an integral structure
  • Explaining complex human systems in plain language and how they align with Lean principles
  • Providing several "Leadersights" – simple suggestions for immediate improvement

You will understand how to create the structure necessary to engage leaders and colleagues while driving new behavior and culture change. The author builds an effective leader development system based on current research on change, leadership, group and team dynamics, job satisfaction, intrinsic motivation, psychological flow, and self-efficacy to create the kind of workplace where people love coming to work and where they become better thinkers, leaders, and teachers.
