Description

Short takes for the time-challenged leader. The logical follow-up to Chandler's previous best-sellers, 00 Ways to Motivate Yourself and Reinventing Yourself. Leadership can be fun if you break it into 100 easy pieces. Be the great leader you've always wanted to be with 100 pithy, persuasive alternatives to the usual way most of us try to motivate others-by downloading our anxiety onto theirs. Breakthrough concepts abound: ""Don't manage people, manage agreements."" ""Tell the truth quickly."" ""Stop talking,"" ""Soften your heart."" ""To motivate your people, first just relax."" Myths are exploded: multitasking is not a strength. We don't ""have"" self-discipline, we use it-or not. You don't have too much to do; you have one thing to do, and that's the thing you have chosen to do right now. These are tried-and-proven ways to inspire success in the people you lead-and in yourself. A vital, accessible, user-friendly guide for executives, managers, professionals, and those aspiring to reach their level.

Professional reviews

"This is one of the most digestible and charming audio lessons on getting the best from people in any setting. The diversity of 100 separate lessons is held together by some powerful conceptual threads: People are responsible for themselves, their autonomy needs to be respected to activate decision-making, and there are ways to get things done that energize people rather than control them. Chandler's practicality, his colloquial language, and his utter comfort with this material belie the thinking that went into these lessons, which effectively span the universe of motivational ideas across the ages. Though Type A listeners will be impatient with Chandler's slow reading, it will be enjoyable on a long vacation drive when they're not in such a hurry. T.W. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
