Eliciting excellence is the essence of exceptional leadership. Everyone accepts that good leadership is important, but rarely is the question raised as to why and how good leadership makes a difference. Although developing good strategies and making smart decisions are important, bringing out the best in people is the most important ability a leader needs in order to produce great results. In Eliciting Excellence, Michael Beck explains why bringing out the best in people matters and shares with the reader how to do just that. Beck elaborates on 15 competencies which pertain to: • How We Act (Self) - How well we conduct ourselves − Show integrity − Earn respect − Be transparent and vulnerable − Maintain a positive attitude • How We Interact (Team) - How well we relate to people − Treat people like people − Communicate effectively − Treat adults like adults − Resolve conflict − Show appreciation and recognition • How We Guide (Organization) - How well we guide the organization − Develop compelling initiatives − Set clear expectations − Develop people − Be inspiring − Be of service − Lead appropriately He shows us why each competency matters, illustrating the positive impact strong leadership has on people, as well as reminding us of the negative consequences of weak leadership. He then offers practical suggestions on how to improve our ability in each competency. Eliciting Excellence will change how you think about leadership, help you bring out the best in those around you, and transform the results of your team and your organization.
