Leading for High Performance


New competitors, stakeholder demands, customer expectations and other shifting requirements make the job of leading, at every level, more challenging than ever. Meeting these challenges by increasing the pressure on direct reports and demanding more from fewer employees results in unhealthy stress and reduced productivity. Research has even correlated an increased probability of heart attack with this type of leader behavior. But what are the options? After all, who isn't stressed? Evidence shows that managers, supervisors, team leaders, and organizations that learn how to share leadership responsibilities with employees are not only better suited to respond quickly to the challenges, threats and opportunities of a competitive marketplace, they also create healthier workplaces.

Managers, supervisors, team leaders, and organizations that learn how to share leadership responsibilities experience fewer stress related health problems. Besides productivity health beneifits, these leaders are also better suited to respond quickly to the market challenges, threats and opportunities.

Leading for High Performance provides leaders with proven knowledge, skills, methods and productive attitude choices that result in empathic, accountable and consistently high performing work units.
