Publisher's Summary

Do you wish you were a better leader? Do you have trouble keeping your employees focused, and committed to your corporate vision?

The truth is...the majority of new bosses struggle to keep their team responsive and motivated. Often, new managers might have trouble embracing their leadership role. Perhaps you've worked for a bully once yourself, and you don't want to be the "bad guy". You'd like to be regarded with admiration by your employees - not with annoyance.

  • So, how can you distinguish yourself as a true leader?
  • How can you become the person that employees look up to?

The solution lies in understanding that most employees seek more than just a paycheck. They aspire to work with leaders who possess exceptional skill and gritty determination. Leaders who inspire superior work, commitment, and respect. Great leaders don't need to pay for such sentiments. Instead, they know how to arouse them naturally.

This audiobook will teach you how to be a great boss and a team leader!

We will bypass the typical dreary management mumbo-jumbo, and show you how to apply timeless leadership principles - to unlock your team's hidden potential.

You will learn:

  • The one annoying attribute of traditional management schemas - that causes so many bosses to fail.
  • Learn why bosses, like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk, are so good at inspiring people to achieve their fullest potential.
  • How to challenge your team to be more productive and autonomous.
  • The essential psychological attributes that separate the good leaders from the great leaders.
  • How to deal with employees that aren't meeting your expectations.
  • How to nurture your mind via sleep and meditation - so you can stay calm and collected, in any stressful situation.
  • How to implement the SMART and OKR goal-setting and goal-tracking frameworks - designed to keep your team on track, and working (harmoniously) toward your corporate vision.

Even if you only manage a small business (with one or two employees), this audiobook is still an invaluable resource for any boss.

Clear and direct to some basic concepts

The narrator could have used more energy in reading the lines.... Yet his intonation made it easy to follow even while at jogging

Why so sexiest?

Keeps referring to a "good man". Very gendered. Repeatedly. "They inspire to work with great men. Men who..." I'm about 10 min in and its referred to "men" as bosses about 12 times.

Just could not finish this....

Typically, most professional development books take into account that you have both men and women that will be reading the work. This author, either just doesn't care or strategically decided to make this entirley male centeted. As an avid reader of fiction, how-to, etc. it was just straight up weird to not hear, after numerous chapters, a single female pronoun. The information itself was okay, nothing entirely new.

pretty solid read

Surprisingly witty and a quick read. This isn't your typical office book. The conclusion actually had quite a heart too.

Do you work in an office?

Anyone with office experinece of any kind can relate. It's a hotbead of politics and you need people person power to get through the day. The author makes some good points about recognizing when to listen and when not to.

women can be leaders too

The cover should have been a tip-off. This was obviously written in a previous century when leaders and bosses were men. I am leaving this book to the boys, who must be the Author's intended audience.

Men

Why am I 10 minutes in to this book and have heard reference to only MEN several times? Apparently this author is not speaking to me so I’ll close it down. Unbelievable.
