From the list on leaders with the courage to be transformational.
Who am I?
I've been fascinated throughout my career by what makes an effective leader. I read about leadership; I carefully observed effective leaders; and I worked hard to become a leader. After a 40-year career, I concluded that nonprofit leaders required a leadership model that met the unique challenges of leading a nonprofit organization and that I was the right person to write the book. I'm proud of The 5 Truths for Transformational Leaders. I believe the book addresses the unique challenges of leading a nonprofit organization. I hope you discover how to use its principles to make a bigger difference in achieving your organization’s mission. Nothing could be more important for the future of our nation.
Ed's book list on leaders with the courage to be transformational
Why did Ed love this book?
People get promoted because they are good at their jobs and have achieved excellent results. What they may not understand is that success in their new role will require something very different. Working harder at what made them successful is not the answer.
Marshall Goldsmith provides aspiring leaders with the keys to growing into an effective leader as they work their way up the corporate ladder. This book helped me at a critical point in my development as a leader to understand and address the things that were holding me back.
I have given a copy of this book to many friends and colleagues when they have been promoted. If you feel stuck in your career, read this book.
