A resilient leader is like an inflatable punching bag … She keeps bouncing back!
Vince Molinaro takes you through the leadership experience providing direction for planning, implementing, and motivating. The Leadership Contract (TLC) best exemplifies the spirit of leaders who don’t give up or give in. They instead give until it hurts and until they get results.
Getting the right balance between people and tasks isn’t easy; it takes hard work. You see the tough challenges the author is faced with before he gets the edge. Molinaro deals with unenthusiastic team members and colleagues bidding their time in propped up cushy job positions trying not to “rock the boat.” Vince recognizes these kinds of weaknesses and becomes discouraged. And just when you think he’s about to throw in the towel he gets the lowdown of how the business world works from a senior manager he admires. Her cajoling is the swift kick in the pants (SKIP) he needs to get him back to driving organizational change for accelerating business improvement.
You’ll find useful information that shows you how collaborating across silos to do what’s best for your customer and organization does a company good. You’ll also find helpful techniques that you could adapt your approach to the role you want to inhabit. You ultimately define Six Sigma leadership skills that create the roadmap that paves a path for future leaders.
The book inspires the reader to dream, learn, do and become more. It takes you beyond being someone who just oversees subordinates and makes sure that they do what they’re told. The reader gets a broader perspective of how to make greater impact in his or her organization. In essence you become the leader who rolls up your sleeves and get stuff done.
What came to mind after completing the book was the distinguished leader Nelson Mandela who said “It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur.” You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”
All that being said, I highly recommend The Leadership Contract for the reader who desires to make the decision to become an extraordinary leader!
