Publisher's Summary

Master the Four Key Tenets of Leadership - and Create a "Ripple Effect" of Positive Change.
A Crash Course in Leadership That Really Makes a Difference
Whether you're a manager, executive, or CEO, leadership matters. Whether you're running a large global firm or a small project team, it's the way you communicate and connect to other people that can make or break your success. The secret, according to Roxi Bahar Hewertson, is to make those connections count - to leverage your skills and play on your strengths - to lead like it matters - because it does.
A virtual crash course in leadership, Lead Like It Matters - Because It Does combines three decades of experience and research with Hewertson's revolutionary work at Cornell to create the definitive workbook. Learn how to:

Assess your leadership style and skill set - and make adjustments
Create constructive dialogues including "managing up" and delegation
Cut wasteful meetings out of your life and lead productive ones
Address common interpersonal conflicts, quickly and gracefully
Increase productivity, team effectiveness, and accountability
Lead change initiatives that aren't dead on arrival, but ready for takeoff

As an executive coach, Hewertson knows how to pinpoint the problems, pressures, and pain points that plague managers at every level - and shows you how to fix them. You'll discover the "ripple effect" that negative leadership choices can have throughout an organization - and how to make positive ripples with clear intent and powerful impact. You'll find a wealth of practical, user-ready tips for handling conflicts, reducing turnover, making confident decisions, and instituting changes in the workplace.
