How to Lead When You're Not in Charge
- Leveraging Influence When You Lack Authority
- By: Clay Scroggins
- Narrated by: Clay Scroggins, Gabe Wicks
- Length: 6 hrs and 19 mins
Every leader, young or old, resonates with the dead-end feeling of not being in charge. Too often the lack of authority paralyzes leaders, leaving them believing they must wait to be in charge until they can lead. One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders lead with or without the authority to lead.
Wasn't what I expected, but pleasantly surprised.

Author sounds like a High school smartass...
The Author has an authoritarian and childish tone and tells stories of being a crossing guard in elementary school and the "Power of waving his hand and bringing a 2,000 lb vehicle to a halt... that's power" No that's stupidity. Can't listen to this book at all.
