More About This Textbook

Overview

Influential Leadership explains critical concepts to achieve organizational excellence and inspire better performance through influential leadership. The book's focus is on behavior (rather than technical skills) and on doing (in addition to knowing), which sets it apart from other leadership titles. The book helps readers see how their behaviors affect (negatively or positively) the outcome of their work, the lives of those around them, and the overall performance of their organization. It illustrates how the ability to become an influential leader is directly proportional to the ability to manage behavior and the way it affects others.
