Front Cover
Tate Publishing, 2009 - Business & Economics - 156 pages
Life offers each of us opportunities to be a leader. Leadership is not reserved for those who hold a title or a lucrative position-it can be demonstrated by anyone in any capacity in which they serve. We need leadership in our homes, our churches, our jobs, and everywhere in between. In Defining Effective Leadership: Leading Wherever You Are, author and leader Alan Stanfield conveys this message and stresses the importance of effective leadership through the different phases of our lives. He addresses a variety of issues that leaders face and illustrates seven characteristics of effective leaders: bull; Consistency bull; Leading by Example bull; Realizing That Others Are Needed bull; Showing Appreciation bull; Casting a Vision bull; Making the Most of What You Have bull; Managing Authority Readers will find Defining Effective Leadership distinct from most books on the subject due to its focus on the simpler side of leadership. Stanfield demonstrates that, contrary to popular belief, leadership is not about the things you do once you get to the top, but rather the things you do before you get there. It is about leading in everything you do in life. Defining Effective Leadership: Leading Wherever You Are compels the reader to look beyond conventional methods and understand that true leadership is about serving others.
