The Leader's Digest: Timeless Principles for Team and Organization Success
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
In response to the phenomenal success of Growing the Distance, Jim Clemmer takes us to the next level of leadership development with The Leader’s Digest. Here the timeless principles of personal or self-leadership described in Growing the Distance are extended to the wider context of leading others. It is, as Jim says, a matter of growing our leadership from “in here” to “out there.” Using the same uniquely readable format that contributed to its predecessor’s success, The Leader’s Digest provides a wealth of quotations, anecdotes, and insightful commentary, all designed to enrich and inform anyone who is responsible for leading people – whether in a small workgroup or a huge multinational corporation.
Leadership is widely recognized as a key factor in the success of an organization, with the result that a huge “leadership industry” has developed, featuring a multitude of theories and models, as well as a confusing array of grids, charts, formulas, and buzzwords. Now, with The Leader’s Digest, bestselling author Jim Clemmer has drawn from his decades of research and management-development experience to distill all of this information down to its essentials.
For anyone who wants to get to the heart of understanding leadership, The Leader’s Digest is a must-read.
