Overview

The first book from the pair that writes America's most popular newspaper column on career success...

Creating a team that exceeds expectations is no accident.

"He got me to do more than I thought possible."

"She simply would NOT let us fail - we worked miracles for her."

How is it that some leaders can demand the most of you in such a way that you love them for it? When Dale Dauten and JT O'Donnell studied such leaders they came up with 12 Laws that together equal this surprising conclusion: MANDATORY GREATNESS.

Dauten and O'Donnell have turned interviews with hundreds of exceptional leaders into a fast and entertaining read. Their wisdom includes...

• Never trust a manager who always loves what you do

• How to move beyond "Lean" to "Muscular"

• Stop and smell the roses, yes, but sometimes you have to stop and smell the fish

• "One sentence is worth a thousand meetings" - Change the conversation and you change the culture

Here is a book that will change forever how you view teamwork, management and the art of producing results.
