- Publisher's Summary
- Often new leaders commit a series of missteps that create dissention and dissatisfaction, ultimately alienating staff. This book is designed to steer future leaders and newly promoted leaders away from these missteps. The authors share ideas to aid new leaders in making fewer mistakes that alienate constituents and subordinates and increase the likelihood of failure. With severe financial problems and increasing diverse cultures and values, today's leaders face greater challenges and need to hit the ground running. This book presents real-life leadership scenarios that resulted in negative outcomes; discusses missteps to avoid; reviews current leadership literature relevant to the scenarios; and provides leadership tips, tools, and self-development exercises.
