Scott Miller knows what it’s like to fail. He was demoted from his first leadership position after only three weeks—and that’s just one of several messy management stories in Management Mess to Leadership Success. Scott’s not alone. Everyone fails. But something sets Scott apart: he knows that failure is not a synonym for unwanted retirement.
Scott knows firsthand what it’s like to go from out-of-touch boss to team-growing leader. In Management Mess to Leadership Success, you’ll find 30 leadership challenges, honed by FranklinCovey through years of research, instructional programs, and executive consultancy, and illustrated with the real-life experiences shared by someone who’s lived these challenges.
Leaders aren’t hired to maintain the status quo. The whole point of leadership is to create positive (often radical) change. Sometimes, that means watching someone you’ve coached succeed—and maybe even surpass you. Sometimes, it means saying “no” more often than saying “yes.” But always, it means improving yourself and your team in new and unconventional ways. Dare to do the unexpected—dare to lead.
Management Mess to Leadership Success combines the wisdom, expertise, and practical advice of successful leaders with how to make effective changes to your leadership strategies. Learn how to:
- Lead difficult conversations and celebrate success
- Inspire trust, actively listen, and challenge paradigms
- Put the right people in the right jobs
- Create a clear and actionable vision
- Accomplish your Wildly Important Goals
- Get the right results—in the right way
