The Leader's Guide to Followers is written from the unique perspective of a follower sharing with leaders how to lead their people well. It offers insights as to why character is a prerequisite for effective leadership, and why earning trust and respect creates influence, a crucial aspect of leading people well. A leader's motivations and agendas are examined to show which ones draw followers to a leader, and which ones turn followers away from him. Throughout the book, practical examples are given for leadership styles and perspectives which build loyalty and energize followers to give their best efforts. Leading is compared and contrasted with controlling, and the followers' response to each is examined. The book also includes an exploration of leadership as a strategy for individuals, organizations, and the country as a whole. Dean Duvall is a native Oregonian who has experienced great leadership under some excellent coaches, teachers and employers throughout his life. He has been involved in a wide range of organizations including "mom and pop" businesses, international franchises, non-profits, state government, and Fortune 500 companies. His leadership experience is mainly in the computer business but includes some non-traditional roles such as guiding week-long mountaineering trips in British Columbia and skippering sailboat trips from Hawaii to Seattle and San Francisco. He continues to encourage leaders to be their best by writing and speaking about what leaders can do to bring out the best in those they lead.

Is it your turn to lead? We need our leaders. In a corporation, government or community, great leaders do not just do the job - they create a better future. These are leaders who have learned the long-term value of influence rather than control as a leadership model. Grant D. Fairley is an executive coach and seminar speaker who takes the reader through the big ideas of being an influential leader. Working with major corporations, governments, educators and community groups, Grant guides those individuals and teams where conflict is destroying the workplace to a fresh start. Through a better understanding of self and those they serve, leaders and teams are renewed. Individuals are encouraged to see their story in a different way. The result is effective leadership and productive teams who take on the challenges they face with energy and commitment. Positive Influence - How to Lead Your World is for those who are new to leadership and is a refresher for experienced leaders as well. In his executive coaching sessions, Grant takes leaders on a journey through the big ideas of leadership. This book is a professional development tool for leaders at any stage of their career. The book is written in short, big-idea chapters that allow the leader to digest the concepts easily. This book is a helpful tool for Human Relations and Employee Relations professionals who wish to engage leaders in their organizations. Whether it is the leader who is great on task but poor on people skills or the newly promoted leader, Positive Influence will help. If you want to be prepared for leadership opportunities in your future, Positive Influence will help you be ready to take on the challenge. Grant's leadership seminars and coaching is designed to develop effective, sustainable and renewable leaders. To be effective as a leader, a person has to be able to apply what is needed when it is needed to the opportunity they have to be the leader. Sustainable leadership means that a person is not a flash in the pan or someone who is only able to lead for a short term before their effectiveness fades. Instead, with a whole-person focus, they will understand how to not just sprint but do the leadership marathon as well. Renewable leaders are able to understand how to continue to learn and grow rather than become stuck in a method or mindset that is inflexible. Leadership has many styles and forms. Organizations thrive or wither depending on the quality and style of leaders they have. Positive Influence goes beyond the do's and don'ts of leadership to explore a whole-person approach to being a leader. This book celebrates those willing to take on the challenges of leadership at any level of business or life. It is written to empower leaders to serve their teams and customers while creating a personal story they will be proud to own.

"Whether you're going for that promotion, looking to jump ship, or change careers entirely, Michael Watkins' Your Next Move is a book you'll want to read." So starts the positive review of Your Next Move on the influential 800 CEO Read website. It's true that all leaders--no matter how seasoned--need guidance through the professional changes that define a career. In fact, transitions into new roles are the crucibles in which leaders get their toughest tests, and they're the defining factor in professional careers today. Yet far too often, leaders fail to transition effectively into new roles. The resulting costs are high, for individual careers and for organizations. In Your Next Move, leadership-transition guru Watkins shows how you can survive and thrive in all the major transitions you will face during your career-including promotions, leading former peers, on-boarding into a new organization, making an international move, or turning around or realigning an organization. With real-life examples and case studies, Watkins illustrates the defining hurdles associated with each type of transition. He then provides the insights, strategies, and tools you'll need to accelerate through these crucial turning points and continue moving up in your career. The necessary complement to the author's bestselling guide The First 90 Days, which has been translated in more than 20 languages worldwide, Your Next Move offers the keen observations, tried-and-true management wisdom, and practical good sense Watkins is renowned for. It's a vital resource for any manager or executive seeking to maintain career momentum. To quote the reviewer from above: "It's not just about "moving" but about what happens when those actions are taken. Success or failure are the two options, and which option you emerge with will determine what happens going forward. Watkins' book definitely has the research and insight to equip you for the better of the two paths."

The majority of existing texts address hospital case management as a 'nursing practice.' And while it is true that most hospital case managers are, in fact, nurses, few of them are responsible for clinical care. This text addresses the role of the hospital case manager from a business perspective rather than a nursing perspective. It speaks to the relationship the case manager has with the executive team, managed care contracting office, decision support specialists, medical records staff, as well as the medical staff and clinical providers and reveals the value of engaging all of them as allies in pursuit of global objectives on behalf of every patient.
