Description

A BREAKTHROUGH AUDIOBOOK IN THE BESTSELLING TRADITION OF THE ONE MINUTE MANAGER
How can you become a more successful manager, a stronger team leader, and a motivator who gets the best results from a group? The Leadership Pill provides the answer. An entertaining and inspiring parable about the competition between two leaders with totally different management styles, here is a story that reveals the ingredients of truly effective leadership.
Consider this tantalizing possibility: What if there was a pill that could actually stimulate the natural powers of the mind and body to provide leadership? In the story, an amazing new pill heightens one leader's powers, but contains the wrong ingredients, stimulating him in an obsessive and shortsighted direction with disastrous results.
In contrast, the "Effective Leader," working without a pill, proclaims that "only through sustainability can our teams remain motivated and successful." An inspiring and supportive leader, he supplies the right ingredients, earning his team's respect and trust with a blend of integrity, partnership, and affirmation. The hard-won result is a highly motivated team producing consistent top performance and genuine success. Ultimately it is recognized that "leadership for a lifetime" is much easier to digest than a pill for leaders looking for a quick fix.
Destined to be a transforming experience for countless listeners, The Leadership Pill shows business managers at any level how to apply the right techniques for getting both results and and the commitment of their people, even when the pressure to perform is high.
