Overview

A leader's performance and quality of life can be measured in direct proportion to the level of ownership his or her people take in delivering results. The more ownership your people feel, the more success you and your organization will enjoy. Lead & Influence shows you how to empower your employees to take ownership of achievement—no matter the distance between you and them.

Based on thirty years of leading and influencing across distances and cultures, author Mark Fritz has identified key leadership mind-sets and habits that create a culture of ownership. Lead & Influence begins with a leader's personal ownership, because leadership success begins with leading yourself. Second, it's about enabling personal ownership in others. Third, it's about enabling team and organizational ownership. Why? Because you want your people to not only do their job, but also to take ownership in accomplishing an outcome.

This step-by-step guide to instilling an ownership mind-set teaches executives and managers how to change the paradigm. Through real-life examples and empowering exercises, this ownership framework will allow you to:

  • Create an environment that yields effective collaboration
  • Strengthen your own character and focus
  • Maintain your perspective and manage stress
  • Invest in and delegate to your key people
  • Get others to feel a responsibility to act on behalf of your company
  • Create positive peer pressure within teams

People who own their job will always feel challenged to solve problems before bringing them back to the boss. Lead & Influence will help you understand why ownership is the key to your leadership success. It offers the tools you need to achieve a united and collaborative organization that gets results.
