Overview

People or Results? You Don’t Have to Choose!

“If I relentlessly drive my team to achieve our goals, they won’t like me.”

“If I try to make everybody on the team happy, we won’t hit our numbers.”

As a leader, you’ve likely felt this fundamental tension—the tension between driving results and developing positive relationships with your people. Despite all the research telling us that effective leaders do both, most of us struggle to balance the happiness of our teams and the health of the bottom line. We are more comfortable focusing on one or the other, and we feel overwhelmed and drained by the challenges we face when we try to accomplish both.

In Bankable Leadership, psychologist, executive coach, and proud leadership geek Dr. Tasha Eurich (or Dr. T) solves this dilemma and reveals how to make leadership exhilarating, fun, and fulfilling. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical model can help anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment that ensures sustainable success. Discover how to
• Be human and drive performance,
• Be helpful and drive responsibility,
• Be thankful and drive improvement, and
• Be happy and drive productivity.

Dr. T’s approach will help you develop these universally effective behaviors through an online assessment and boots-on-the-ground tools, like earning trust through transparency, treating adults like adults, and taking a no-fear approach to feedback.

Whether you’re struggling to build a more productive team, increase confidence in your leadership skills, or consistently deliver results, Bankable Leadership is the resource you’ve been waiting for!

    Dr. Eurich has captured important lessons for any leader or aspiring leader in this practical, funny, accessible and enormously helpful book. The research backing up her conclusions will especially appeal to the more technical-minded reader (that's you, my engineer friends), but the emotional connections are powerful as well. She illustrates her points with real-life stories, which makes them both memorable and impactful. I've had the honor of working with Dr. T in a wildly different settings, from corporate learning and organizational development, to strategic planning, to mentoring young women in Uganda to providing advice for leaders of a primarily blue-collar workforce. Her style, wit and wisdom was valuable for all these varied audiences. There are about a billion leadership books out there, but if you have to pick just one, this should be the one.
