Management fads come and go, however leadership principles that have proven to be effective in improving performance and producing lasting results are indelibly preserved. Such is the case of the Truskie L-4 Leadership Strategy. Introduced in 1999 in his book, Leadership in High Performance Organizational Cultures, this updated and revised second edition expands on his proven leadership model and is enhanced with new and important information. Successfully implemented by thousands of leaders since it was first introduced ten years ago, it continues to be the go-to strategy for leaders who are attempting to build a high-performing organization in the midst of difficult and challenging economic times. From his studies and continued professional practice as a Fortune 500 executive coach and leadership professor, Truskie demonstrates how enlightened leaders (and organizations) have abandoned the dated and ineffective top-down management approach in favor of a much more adaptive and engaging one that creates an energized, innovative, and results-driven company culture.
