The leadership exodus of the Baby Boomers is creating dramatically-accelerated promotions in organizations and leaving behind a significant leadership skills gap. • Do you aspire to build a truly high performance team? • Is your career not moving forward quickly enough? • Are you in a little over your head as a leader? If so, this book can help! All intentions, actions, and results should be viewed through what Cory Bouck calls “The Lens of Leadership” to bring focus to the leader’s ultimate accountability for results. Doing so will magnify your personal performance, improve your organization’s results, and accelerate your career progression. Failing to accept total responsibility sets low performance expectations, perpetuates a culture of mediocrity, and cripples the career opportunities of those you lead. Whether you are an experienced leader with broad responsibilities, an early leader who wants to get ahead faster, or an aspiring future leader who wants to expand your influence, viewing your role through The Lens of Leadership will ensure that you deliver better results, get promoted faster, and inspire those around you. In The Lens of Leadership, you will learn: • How to set yourself apart from your peers by developing an accountability mindset that consistently examines results through The Lens of Leadership. • How to earn a reputation for strong leadership at every level through your "followership." • How to act, paradoxically, as both a leader and follower at the same time throughout your career. • How to develop all of the must-have tools for your leadership toolbox. • How to increase your impact, develop more bench strength, and build a high performance team by learning to serve, build, and inspire others.

You never dreamed being the boss would be so hard. You're caught in a web of conflicting expectations from subordinates, your supervisor, peers, and customers. You're not alone. As Linda Hill and Kent Lineback reveal in Being the Boss, becoming an effective manager is a painful, difficult journey. It's trial and error, endless effort, and slowly acquired personal insight. Many managers never complete the journey. At best, they just learn to get by. At worst, they become terrible bosses. This new book explains how to avoid that fate, by mastering three imperatives: · Manage yourself: Learn that management isn't about getting things done yourself. It's about accomplishing things through others. · Manage a network: Understand how power and influence work in your organization and build a network of mutually beneficial relationships to navigate your company's complex political environment. · Manage a team: Forge a high-performing "we" out of all the "I"s who report to you. Packed with compelling stories and practical guidance, Being the Boss is an indispensable guide for not only first-time managers but all managers seeking to master the most daunting challenges of leadership.
