leadership
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Most leadership models start with trying to identify what great leaders do. Instead, leadership expert Emmanuel Gobillot answers the question "what do great followers want?"

He identifies the key elements of leadership success and the proven pathways to developing the charisma we all seek in the leaders who truly inspire and motivate. Leaders who understand the needs of their followers demonstrate that they share the values of their team, have the character to act in line with these values and the ability to deliver on them. The best leaders have high EQ (Emotional Intelligence) capabilities and can respond to their followers' needs in an authentic way.

This book breaks down the all important "charisma" into eight critical elements, explaining how each component works and offering practical development steps for each. Getting these steps right will transform good leaders into magnets for great followers.

Reviews

"Fresh, authentic and applicable – that is how Emmanuel Gobillot approaches the topic of leadership. At last a book about leadership that elevates the conversation beyond the egocentricity of the leader himself. Why do people follow? What an insightful and powerful question to ask. This is one of the only books I have ever read that applies a leadership skill to the business of writing leadership books – it walks a mile in the follower’s shoes. As the saying goes, if you have no followers, you are simply out for a walk."
—Peter Sheahan, Global bestselling author of Generation Y, Fl!p and Making it Happen
