Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In Leading on Purpose, veteran leadership consultants Tim Thomas and Rip Tilden draw on their experiences with thousands of leaders to effectively make their case: great leaders are made, not born.

The authors lay out their case in a conversational tone, weaving in lessons from conversations between fictional CEO ''Frank'' and his insightful, sharp-tongued grandmother. The result is an engaging, clear, and eminently helpful guide to the eight critical skill sets you need to become a purposeful and effective leader:

1. Understanding Leadership Style
2. Strategy
3. Communication
4. Motivation
5. Feedback
6. Conflict Resolution
7. Execution
8. Change Management

No matter where you are in your career CEO, Director, Supervisor, Manager Leading on Purpose truly gives you practical, easy-to-understand tools for use in any work environment.
