Summary

This book presents and discusses some significant leadership elements which can help both aspiring and experienced leaders to lead their followers effectively, peacefully, and productively. The intent is that you will find strategies and tactics that you can use immediately in your work situation. You will find the book to be a “quick read,” but we hope that some of the tips will cause you to have a “long think.” The overall focus is on developing positive leadership skills, and on avoiding those things that undermine good leadership. Consequently, you will also find both “do’s” and “don’t’s.” Although the elements discussed in this book are geared primarily towards an organizational context, almost all are relevant for all types of leadership situations and positions. And, most of the suggestions are simply common sense. As you read this book, remember that there are exceptions to everything-nothing is absolute when dealing with people. Further, there are no concrete formulas or magic panaceas for leadership. Solid leadership is derived from keen observation and hard work. Everything presented here may not work for you. Pick those things that fit into your overall style. Remember that, when you arrive at the managerial level, your survival depends upon your being a good manager. To truly succeed, however, you must survive, manage well, and develop leadershipskills.
