Titleless Leader: How to Get Things Done When You're Not in Charge by Nan S. Russell

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.
