Format: Hardcover
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.

My clients tell me that they finally see their true and authentic
selves for the first time through my lens. The Renegade Leader
and Debora McLaughlin does just that, she lets leaders see
themselves in a new light, gain a deeper perspective, and
create a vision for themselves and for their organization that
exceeds their initial expectations. The Renegade Leader puts
the spotlight on leadership and offers it a new angle--one that
can't be missed!"

This book gives that rare combination of day-to-day common sense wrapped up with specific steps and the behind-the-curtain thinking. Influence is such an everyday word now and few people really 'get' what that means. Debora does with this book and her clients seem to from her work with them. Wow. This will be on the reading list for my own clients! Thank you Debora for honing it down in this way. it's a true skill!The A to Z of Being Understood: make your voice heard and your conversations count
