Publisher's Summary

Leadership strategies grounded in reality and focused on results

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 paychecks, 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.

Game Changer

This book has already changed my life. The strategies outlined are practical and easy to understand. I love that it starts with me and my mindset as a leader. My frustration at work and home is greatly reduced and I've suggested that our entire leadership team read this book so we may apply the principles together.
