Jumpstart Your Leadership- 10 Jolts to Leverage Your Leadership

Are you a leader? Would like to be a better leader? Would you like to be a leader in the future? Then this book is for you. In this book Shawn Doyle will show you the tools tips and techniques for becoming the kind of leader that other people want to follow.

Jumpstart Your Leadership will share with you the 10 key principles of leveraging your leadership.

Mission and vision- the important and compelling reasons why every organization large and small needs to have a mission and vision statement in order to lead effectively.

Strategic planning- strategic planning is absolutely critical to the long-term health of an organization. However in many cases leaders are not skilled at planning short, mid-term and long-term. Shawn shows them specifically how to plan and think strategically about the future which is a core leadership competency.

Hiring- hiring in many organizations is done very poorly, haphazardly and the track record of success is appalling. Shawn shows leaders how to interview and hire people effectively and shares a shocking concept about hiring people that they have probably never heard.

Communication- in many organizations leaders think that they are communicating effectively-but they would be wrong. The reality is most leaders think they're communicating effectively but when employees are asked they say they don't feel "in the loop" or that the communication is not effective in any way. So why is there two different versions of effective communication? This chapter will unlock the keys to effectively communicating in a leadership role.

Motivation- one of the biggest questions that Shawn gets in the classroom around the country is how can leaders motivate their employees? In this chapter he shares the inside secrets for getting the team motivated and only high levels of morale and team spirit.

Reward- too many times in too many organizations high-performing employees feel underappreciated overworked and not rewarded. In this chapter Shawn shares with them many of the myths about reward and how they can be shattered. He also shares the key strategies for rewarding people in order to impact of rewards and to increase people's perception of their rewards.

Accountability- far too many times managers are reluctant to hold employees accountable for the results of their work. In this section Shawn shares the key tools and techniques for holding people accountable for their work and for the results of their work.

Development- Shawn believes that one of the key responsibilities of a person in a leadership role is to provide employees with the development that they deserve and need. He will show leaders how to put an end to the concept of a "dead end job."

Storytelling- Shawn believes that an important competency of leadership is being able to tell stories that reinforce and help build the culture of an organization. In this section leaders will learn how to become a competent and powerful storyteller as a leader.

Authenticity- many books of late have been written about the importance of authenticity and honesty. This chapter shares with leaders the importance of being "who they are" within the framework of their organization.

In addition to covering all of these topics, each section of the book includes a "work it" section at the end
