Overview

Ask yourself honestly, is your professional life going according to plan? If you are not developing your leadership skills, there is an essential element missing from your efforts for success. Leading from the Front will show you how to start leading your life rather than allowing your life to lead you.

Many women have never received formal leadership training. They weren't taught to be decisive, commanding, and ready to take risks. But it's never too late to change. Angie Morgan and Courtney Lynch weren't born leaders-they became leaders during their years in the U.S. Marine Corps, enduring some of the toughest training on earth. Now they pass the leadership know-how and experience from that training on to you.

Drawing on their years as Marine Corps officers and successful private consultants, Morgan and Lynch deliver 10 key practices to becoming a powerful leader. You'll improve your decision making, focus, and performance as you learn to

  • Set an inspiring example
  • Think fast on your feet
  • Stop making excuses
  • Take care of your team (so they'll take care of you)
  • Respond without overreacting
  • Stay cool while dealing with crises
  • Have the courage to achieve your goals

Learn how to effectively take on any challenge that comes your way-with the confidence you need to lead like the toughest Marine, but with a woman's touch.

This is one of the best books on leadership I've read. It is very easy to read, full of great examples. I have given copies to several friends and colleagues and I continue to re-read sections.
