Leadership IS for Everyone
Until now, leadership has always been viewed as the purview of a select few - it seems to be more about the "what" these leaders want their subjects to do, rather than the "how-to." That's a mistake, says Vinay Nadig. In this persuasive and pragmatic new book, Vinay makes a case that (a) leadership is accessible to anyone and (b) leadership is a set of sustainable daily behaviors.
He lays out a practical and instantly usable "leadership launch platform" in the form of 20 Leadership Secrets or techniques. These 20 secrets are the foundation of leadership as a way of life - the only real way to perform at an exceptional level.
Read what Marshall Goldsmith, 2 million-selling author of the New York Times bestseller, Mojo and What Got You Here Won't Get You There has to say about "Leadership IS for Everyone":
"In Leadership IS for Everyone, Vinay lays out a vision to achieve exceptional performance and achieve fulfillment at work. His core tenets of doing things rather than being somebody, of sustainable behaviors rather than a belief in hierarchy and title hit the mark in todays workplace. Using a practical workbook-like approach, Vinay leads you through the process of establishing yourself as a leader and then launching into the highest levels of leadership where you focus not just on yourself, but in transforming others. If you are looking to take your performance to the next level and achieve not just your goals but true fulfillment, then reading and using the 20 leadership secrets he shares in this book will prove invaluable."
