Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Everyone suffers from extreme overload today. The world has morphed into a global village where immediacy rules. Things must be done right away without sacrificing excellence. If we were honest every time someone asked, “How are you?” the reply would be, “Way too busy to even think about it.”

Our hectic business and personal lives leave us feeling as if we are constantly trying to fit 15 pounds of apples into a 5-pound bag. The more apples we try to stuff into the bag, the more difficult the task becomes and the more frustrated we grow.

But here is good news! There is a remedy, and it is called Bold Leadership. In this insightful book, organizational change and leadership expert Jim Tompkins shows you how to become the leader that you have always wanted to be. More importantly, you will understand how to encourage others to lead so that you can concentrate on the big picture. Get your life out of overload mode, professionally and personally.

This book was conceived and written to help people take control of their lives and become more effective leaders. Although aimed at business executives, the principles within these pages apply to people in all walks of life. Whether you want to boost your value to your company or improve your life overall, it takes Bold Leadership.

Bold Leadership has three main parts:

#1) Inspirational Leadership
  • What it is and is not.
  • Why it is personal.
  • How you can live it daily.
#2) Outsourcing
  • Why it is not a bad word.
  • Why defining core competencies is so critical.
  • How to avoid the pitfalls.
#3) Business Resiliency
  • Why it is a mistake to think you are invincible.
  • Why there is no choice but to have a plan.
  • How to be smart about survival.
