      The Dynamic Leader

      Become the leader others are inspired to follow

      by Shelley Flett

      The Dynamic Leader is the leader the author wishes she’d had to follow. It is the leader readers can become and who others will aspire to follow. Approaching leadership with a ‘task’ focus means your interest is around delivering results, getting things done and/or getting things right. It is around process, productivity, efficiency, performance and achievement. In contrast, approaching leadership with a ‘people’ focus means your interest is around building relationships, getting to know people and ensuring they feel valued. It is around engagement, collaboration, fun, health and personal fulfilment. And while both approaches have their unique benefits they also have their disadvantages. In The Dynamic Leader, Shelley teaches how to find a balance between tasks and people and treat both with equal importance. She shares a nine-stage model that she has created to help readers focus on relationships, respect and results. The model is simple to relate to and incorporates all of the interpersonal elements required to succeed as a new leader. This book gives an alternative to the conventional ‘command and control’ approach and sets leaders up for success in a sustainable way. Through influence, you work smart and your role is one of support, guidance and of building capability in our future leaders. By the end of the book you will have a clear idea of how to become a dynamic leader and you can start putting some of the lessons you’ve learned into practice. This is your guide book, your travel mate, the ‘go to’ place when you feel out of control and need a different perspective. By no means is this book the only thing you’ll need to become an amazing leader but it’s a great place to start.

      Leading Well

      7 attributes of very successful leaders

      by David Pich and Ann Messenger

      Leading Well is a leadership inspiration book focused on leadership, not leaders. Leadership inspiration is too often attributed to the idea of a leadership genius – one saintly figure who personifies all the virtues of leadership – think Steve Jobs, Einstein or Gandhi – which, at first, doesn’t make the idea of a genius leader sound terribly bad. The problem with the concept of genius leaders, however, is that they don’t always represent leadership. These often-glorified CEOs, politicians and philosophers sit on a pedestal where they’re worshipped by us – the people who aspire to achieve their level of success. To thousands of emerging leaders around the world, these people are their North Star, but what happens when these leaders disappoint us? People in leadership positions can make poor leadership decisions. When we believe in the concept of a leadership genius, we too easily overlook actions and attributes of poor leadership. If the news headlines of poor leadership over the past year have reinforced one thing, it’s this: great leadership is never about one leader; it’s the combined attributes of good leadership performed by leaders – the 7 attributes of very successful leaders: Integrity Emotional Intelligence (EI) Ability to Inspire Authenticity Self-Awareness Respect Decisiveness. Discussion around these attributes is the subject of each of the chapters. There are case studies, expert opinions and strategies to help today’s, and next-generation leaders, in their endeavours to lead their organisations as best they can.

      Lead the Room

      Communicate a Message That Counts in Moments That Matter

      by Shane M. Hatton

      “Not just a book about presentation skills (though if it helps you nail your next presentation that’s great), my aim with Lead the Room is that it equips you to leverage your platform to lead and mobilise your team and help you become a more effective leader.” Shane M. Hatton In the moments that matter, leadership matters. Our world is more globally connected than ever before, with easier access to information than at any point in history, yet in the important moments people aren’t just looking for something that can inform them, they are looking to someone who will lead them. The abundance of fascinating and practical information in Lead the Room is neatly presented in three parts, as the author talks you through what he calls his ‘three big obsessions’: Positioning – Developing your character and your narrative, building your credibility and managing your reputation as a leader. Messaging – Determining the value you offer, defining the message you want to convey and delivering your message with impact; and Developing – Getting better at thinking, investing in yourself, asking for feedback and learning how to fail. Lead the Room is full of thought-provoking anecdotes and examples, that will inform and educate – and often make you smile. After reading this book the next time you stand up on your platform, whatever that may look like, you’ll see it as more than an opportunity to speak to the room; rather, you’ll see it as an opportunity to lead the room. Every moment matters. Use it as an opportunity to say something that truly counts.
