From the Back Cover

A One-Volume, MBA-Level Course for Becoming More Than a Manager By Developing True Leadership Skills

Managerial competence is important in laying the foundation for a successful career, but demonstrated leadership skills are necessary to propel you up the organizational ladder.

Managerial Leadership explains how to simultaneously achieve both, successfully managing projects and activities while at the same time effectively leading people.

Based in part on Dr. Peter Topping's experience as managing director of the Goizueta Institute for Corporate Learning and Research, a cross-disciplinary think tank created to advance the cause of leaders and leadership, this challenging and illuminating book provides:

A proven, four-tiered approach to becoming a more effective leader

Tools for developing coaching, teaching, and mentoring skills

Methods for determining and strengthening effective leadership behaviors

While it may be true that managers facilitate while leaders initiate, both skills remain valuable in today's workplace.

Let Managerial Leadership show you how to combine management and leadership into a dynamic approach for demonstrating effective leadership in any company or industry.

Developing effective leadership isn't a "one from column A, two from column B" challenge.

Managerial Leadership outlines a comprehensive approach to leadership that works, one that recognizes the interactions between the leader, the task, and the followers. Discussing the competencies and principles that define leadership throughout an organization, and featuring case studies of benchmark organizations from Coca-Cola and Home Depot to Xerox and Fluor Daniel, professor and consultant Peter Topping provides a focused yet wide-ranging analysis into recognizing and developing your own leadership personality. Discussions include:

Proven steps for developing a personalized leadership plan and putting that plan into action

Methods to foster learning on the way to creating a learning organization

Ways to identify key competencies for influencing your followers today and in the future

How popular "360กใ Feedback" tools can enhance leadership behaviors or be organizationally destructive

Techniques for providing constructive criticism in a clear, no-nonsense fashion

Practical ways to successfully manage across cultures in a global context

Insights from influential leadership minds including Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman, James Kouzes, Barry Posner, and others

In today's "manage first, ask questions later" corporate culture, the leadership vacuum has reached crisis levels. Those individuals and organizations that understand the values of solid leadership and learn the techniques for cultivating that leadership will have a powerful competitive advantage. In Managerial Leadership, get the tips, tools, and strategies you need to cultivate and implement a strong leadership organization and to develop your own valuable leadership effectiveness.
