Over the years that I have worked in a business environment and also in charity-based organizations, I've taken some useful courses. I have read numerous books, and have seen and utilized various tools that have all promised success in leading teams and managing successful projects. As helpful as they were, I found that the greatest advantages in leading teams and managing large scale projects is not found in technical tools and procedures but in skillfully relating to your team that you have the privilege of overseeing. You can have the process monitored and procedures memorized, have all the leadership certifications on your office wall, be an expert in all the technical tools and apps, and list out all the terminology without skipping a beat. But if you can't skillfully manage human relationships and interactions, you will fail in your attempt to successfully lead teams and manage extremely successful projects.
If you're not the greatest natural leader since Mahatma Gandhi, this book will help you out. I've listed 10 guidelines to help you expand your ability to lead. If you can master these, you will greatly increase your ability to lead team after team and achieve success in all projects set before you. Keep in mind that you won't always acquire these skills instantly. You'll make some errors along the way.
That is okay, as long as you endeavor to work at it and resolve that no matter what, you'll be a better leader. You need to do this because so few people are good leaders, and this world needs good leadership.
