Are you making the jump from doing to leading?
John Stuef has been there; he was a successful doer who made the transition to leading.
Great leadership can be achieved with personal growth and an appreciation that inspiring people to do a job well requires a whole different skill set than doing that job yourself.
In From Doing to Leading, authors John Stuef and Amy Bradshaw show us the pitfalls of “traditional” leadership techniques, from the dictates of tough love, to keeping employees on a tight leash, to micro-managing your operations; these methods are flawed and counter-productive to building a team. Leadership on the front-lines, in blue collar jobs, is no different than any other type of workplace because all people are driven by the same brain chemistry - it’s the basis of human nature.
To understand people, we need to turn to the science of how the brain works. Understanding human behavior is the key to understanding how to lead.
This is a book for the doers, people who work with their hands, who have arrived at the next stage of their career: leadership.
After listening to From Doing to Leading, you’ll know exactly what to do and not to do as you transition from being a doer to being a leader.
