"Many equate leadership with knowledge or talent, but in today's workplace people don't necessarily follow knowledge or talent. Both are easy to find, and having them may actually be a deterrent to effective leadership. Top Ten Ways to Be a Great Leader shows us the characteristics that real leaders possess. And fortunately, they can be learned by anyone with a heart for true leadership."
Dan Miller, career coach, bestselling author, and president of 48 Days LLC
From the Author
After 30 years in the trenches of leadership, I decided that asked the question, "What are the most important skills every new leadership master?" I came up with an acrostic for the word LEADERSHIP. Each chapter of this book, 10 chapters in all, outline an essential skill every leader must master. The "Top 10 Mistakes Leaders Make" is about pitfalls to avoid. This book is about essential skills every leader should master.

“Over-managing—one of the cardinal sins of leadership.”
Here’s another one: Why resilience is different from persistence. (Read this!)
On accessibility: “Even Jesus had an open-door policy.”
And this gut-check: “Vulnerability and accessibility are joined at the hip.” You’ll use his chart on the difference between “shepherds” and “hired hands” when discerning who to hire—and you’ll borrow “what servant leadership is not” for your next staff talk.
This is a jam-packed treasure chest of wisdom and fresh insights, oozing with the right blend of pokes-in-the-ribs…and grace.
But one more poke: I wrote a chapter on "The Delegation Bucket" in Mastering The Management Buckets: 20 Critical Competencies for Leading Your Business or Non-profit, but I should have delegated the writing to Finzel! His gems:
--“Sloppy delegation is one of the greatest sins of leadership. There seems to be no mistake a leader makes that spreads more misery to followers.”
--“The lack of good delegation is rooted in fear in the leader.”
--“Delegation should match each worker’s follow-through ability.”
And…don’t miss his “10 Great Tips on Awesome Delegation,” including “Let go of your desire to do it better yourself.”
This book is perfect for mentoring/coaching a new leader or manager—but is also a convicting reminder to experienced leaders. His 10-point acronym is memorable:
"L" Is for Listen and Learn
"E" Is for Emotional Intelligence
"A" Is for Accessibility
"D" Is for Determination
"E" Is for Effective Communication
"R" Is for Resilience
"S" Is for Servant Attitude
"H" Is for Hands-Off Delegation
"I" Is for Integrity
"P" Is for the Power of Humility
Delegate a chapter a week to your direct reports—for brief management enrichment sessions at your weekly staff meetings. And later this year—invest in two other books by Hans Finzel: The Power of Passion in Leadership: Lead With Your Heart, Not Just Your Head and The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially young leaders. I received a copy of this e-book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
