Overview

Why do leaders fall so short, so often? Typically, Intimidators (leaders who need to control others) and Accommodators (leaders who need acceptance) suffer equally from not knowing and accepting themselves, say leadership coaches Leigh and Maureen Bailey. Taking a holistic approach and guiding readers through a self-discovery process, the Baileys help you identify your "prism" of background and experience and see its impact on your leadership style. Then, by learning to use complementary styles and your deeper self-knowledge to coach, motivate, and direct people, you can become a truly grown-up leader. Proven, practical and positive advice, practices, tools, and stories from real people make this an inspiring, challenging book. Models, charts, anecdotes, an index and other resources make it immediately effective, too.

    A must read for great leaders

    This book has opened my eyes to my own leadership style and what it takes to be a grown up leader. I am over 40 years of age, have had many leadership opportunities but this book will allow me not just to lead but to lead well by examining my own personal and professional habits that have stalled my own leadership progress. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to lead in a world where leadership, true leadership, which requires introspection to make positive change, is lacking. Their method is thorough, simple to understand and effective. The Baileys evaluation of what makes a good leader is spot on!
