Publisher's Summary

Leadership training can be inconsistent in the best of times, and in tough economic times, it’s often one of the first things that even the most progressive companies cut back. Nor can you depend on finding that mentor you’ve been hoping for. So now, more than ever, if you’re going to advance your career, you need to lift yourself up by your bootstraps. But not entirely: Steve Arneson is here to give you a boost.

In Bootstrap Leadership, Arneson, one of America’s top leadership coaches, offers a complete blueprint for designing your own personal leadership development program. In 50 brief, to-the-point chapters, he provides creative and practical ideas that have been proven successful in his work with executives at Fortune 500 companies like AOL, PepsiCo, and Capital One. But surprisingly, these ideas cost nothing or next to nothing to implement, nor do they require any elaborate equipment or infrastructure—they’re open to anyone with sufficient initiative, drive and ambition. No one is going to just give you that next promotion—you have to develop yourself, and earn it. Bootstrap Leadership shows you how.

    "Enjoyed book, wish more leaders would read."
    What did you love best about Bootstrap Leadership?

    This book was referenced in a leadership seminar provided by my company. My goal is to be a better leader and move up the ladder in my company. This book had some great insight as to things to do to with your peers and direct reports that I will certainly implement immediately in my current position.

    I only wish more of the upper middle and senior management in our company would read/listen to a book like this. We have a huge gap in leadership on certain levels and the littlest thing like communication can bridge those gaps and make our company that much better.

    This is certainly a book that needs a second or third listen to fully absorb the concepts.

    "Excellant narrator, practical examples"

    The narrator is very easy to listen to and emphasizes the encouragement as if a mentor is empowering you. Almost every chapter contains practical and realistic examples. This book is as motivating and interesting as its title.
