Book Summary

For busy managers who don’t have time to tackle hefty leadership development guides, this slender yet powerful book offers fifty easy-to-read strategies for highly effective leadership.

About the Book

Authors Scott J. Allen and Mitchell Kusy redefine what we think of as traditional leadership in this tangible book that ascribes flexible yet concrete and proven actions to what can be a very abstract term.

Rather than delving into lengthy exposition and analysis to help you understand what leadership is and how to develop it for yourself, this practical book enables you to design a straightforward system tailored to your team and organizational needs.

Free of complicated theories, The Little Book of Leadership Development focuses on what really works to motivate others, encourage productivity, and equip future leaders. The book delivers streamlined instructions on fifty practical strategies, including:

  • modeling behaviors,
  • sharing information,
  • building accountability,
  • stretching teams,
  • and providing feedback.

Managers with the ability to self-reflect and a willingness to implement these ideas will see quick improvements--in communication, efficiency, morale, and every other measure. The Little Book of Leadership Development goes straight to the heart of what it takes to be a great leader, so you can spend less time studying skills and more time developing a committed team of emerging leaders.
