Publisher's Summary

Recent polls show that 71% of workers think about quitting their jobs every day. That number would be shocking-if people actually were quitting. Worse, they go to work, punching time clocks and collecting pay checks, while completely checked out emotionally. In Reality-Based Leadership, expert Fast Company blogger Cy Wakeman reveals how to be the kind of leader who changes the way people think about and perceive their circumstances-one who deals with the facts, clarifies roles, gives clear and direct feedback, and insists that everyone do the same-without drama or defensiveness.

Filled with dynamic examples, innovative tools, and diagnostic tests, this book shows you how to become a Reality-Based Leader, revealing how to:

  • Uncover destructive thought patterns with yourself and others
  • Diffuse drama and lead the person in front of you
  • Stop managing and start leading, empowering others to focus on facts and think for themselves

Equipped with a facts-based, confident approach, you will free yourself from the frustrations you face at work and transform yourself into a Reality-Based Leader, with the ability to liberate and inspire others.

    "Bring on the personal accountability!"

    Finished listening to this book on the drive in today. I am a big proponent of personal accountability and the idea that you can't change anyone but yourself. This book aligns with these ideas as it provides very specific ideas for how to accept responsibility for your results, take action and have impact by leading yourself and leading your team. Concise, well written, recommended for my fellow people-managers out there or anyone who is feeling frustrated with workplace drama! My only criticism is that the narration is quite robotic - listened on 1.5x speed and it was better.

    Thumbs up.
