Overview

"Nan has an uncommon and comprehensive understanding of the workplace. Her talent is embracing and encouraging the diverse gifts of every member of the team, a proven formula for success, and a genuine approach to leadership."
--Marlene Robinson, Director, QVC Production Services

How people work, communicate, collaborate, and manage responsibilities has changed. Knowing how to build influence and lead others without title or authority, no matter what your role, is now a workplace necessity.

No one needs to appoint you, promote you, or nominate you. You decide. It's not rank that will get you results; its the actions.

In The Titleless Leader, you will discover uncommon behaviors that will enable you to:
  • Operate with trust in an era of distrust and growing cynicism
  • Activate your titleless leadership practice by using "what-does-it-look-like?" approaches and "how-does-it happen?" tips, exercises, and insights
  • Engage yourself and others using the cornerstones of self-alignment, soul-courage, possibility seeds, and winning philosophies

    Using the revolutionary tactics laid out in The Titleless Leader, you'll turbocharge your career and discover how to get things done...even without a title.

    Lead by example

    I think we all know that we need to lead by example, not throw blame and accept responsibilities for our actions. Ms. Russell shares her thoughts on how we can be the best employee,and team leader we can be. She proves that it is totally up to each individual to take a stand on what they feel is the right thing to do to make a company grow and to be a desirable place to work. How to be inspirational to your co-workers.

    We spend an enormous amount of time at work, why not make it the best possible place to be? Her winning philosophies are to be admired! Great book, thank you!
