Deborah is doing the work that she was born for when she applies her personal, unique genius that enables leaders to excel. She has amazing gifts that guide leaders to change their communication and behavioral style so their message is heard, while building collaboration where chaos once existed around them. The CEOs who have had the fortunate benefit of her coaching and advice have grown their businesses more effectively than they could have possibly done without her. Get some of her personal genius for yourself when you read this book. The Renegade Leader will shift the human dynamics in your organization and help you become the leader that others choose to follow. Cover to cover or one chapter at a time, you will be educated, entertained and enlightened. Deborah is brilliant, effective, and very fun - and so is her book.

Deborah helps you make the connections between your already abundant talents and your opportunities to develop new ones. This book clearly lays out "for the sake of what" and offers multiple specific practices that will help you move out of your comfort zone into mastery of several new skills. Her tone emanates all the warmth and compassion and confidence in you that you experience as she shares her brilliance with you in person. The tool box references are invaluable. This is an evergreen reference book that I'll be able to use for years to come, knowing Deborah will continue to update and enhance the resources she finds through her continued explorations.

Format: Hardcover
Are you an employer who has the full engagement of your employees? On average it's estimated that many companies only have 27% of employees who are actively engaged in the company and its goals. The average cost of disengaged employees can cost employers $240-$270 billion a year in lost productivity. Are these figures shocking to you? How will you be working to make sure you have all the strategies in place to make your company and its employees more productive? The Renegade Leader and its I.N.F.L.U.E.N.C.E. Framework can help you and your organization become successful and profitable.

If you lead teams that lack performance, don't trust you and feel as though your leaderships skills are lacking, then this guide will help you to create a company culture, tune into your employees and unlock the potential of your teams. According to McLaughlin, "There is accumulating evidence that corporations fail because there prevailing focus in on revenues, reducing costs, and improving operations. Of course, you recognize these functions as the arterial system of your organization. But what creates the pulse of the organization, feeds all of its roadways, and makes it sustainable? The people who work for you." If you want a "people-centered" style of management the I.N.F.L.U.E.N.C.E. Framework offers you a roadmap to help get everyone on board.

What will this guide do for you? It will help you Inspire your team, Nourish trust, Foster leadership, Listen to quiet or unfamiliar voices, Unleash the potential in your people, Engage in transparent communication, Notice and recognize achievements, Create a culture of collaboration, and Enjoy and respect diversity. Each letter in the I.N.F.L.U.E.N.C.E. Framework is a chapter that goes into great detail on how to make it work for you.

Loved this book! Deborah McLaughlin's strategies for leadership and success have helped me better lead my team to greater productivity and performance. Being a renegade, anyway, this title appealed to me, but the information within was invaluable! This is a must-read for any executive or small business owner.

Social media has made all the difference meeting people who have skills and talent that make a leader a better leader. I had the honor of meeting Debora virtually through LinkedIn. After reading about her on the Renegade website, I knew Debora had a different approach towards coaching and development. I cant wait to read the book and understand better Debora's vision for those who lead.
