Don’t be content with simply learning what makes a great leader. Take the time to put in the work building those character traits inside you.

Why is it that most of the principles and ideas we are inspired with when we read leadership books rarely end up leaving the page? Because we’ve learned what successful leaders are doing, as well as why we should be implementing it ourselves, but we have no idea how we can specifically do all this in our unique circumstances.

Leadership Step by Step walks you through what to do and how to do it by taking you through an integrated and comprehensive progression of exercises designed to cultivate key abilities, behaviors, and beliefs through experience.

By the end of the 22 exercises in this hands-on book, you will learn to:

  • Build self-awareness
  • Manage emotions
  • Speak in an authentic voice
  • Create meaningful connections
  • Inspire others

Each chapter opens with a story demonstrating a vital leadership skill. Then, it guides you through the process of developing that skill for yourself.

Leadership Step by Step teaches you how to be that leader you’ve read so much about!
