Mantra Leadership emphasizes the importance of emotionally intelligent leadership which if embraced can increase your team's productivity by as much as 30% or more. This book illustrates positive leadership behaviors that resonate with employees as well as examples of poor behaviors. Each chapter is titled from one of my mantras adopted over my 30 years of experience and considerable education based on both my research. Mantras are extremely helpful in leadership as they provide for a consistent, simple and effective communication mechanism applicable to both aspiring and seasoned business leaders alike.
The leadership style I employ has been very successful as evidenced by the last 14 years of my career as senior director of research and development for Medtronic Surgical Technologies, a division I have helped grow from $100 million to approximately $2 billion in annual revenues over this time period.
