Our book for April is "Unleashed - The Unapologetic Leader's guide to empowering everyone around you" by Frances Frei & Anne Morriss.
Why has this been my treasure of a book on #leading others? Why are its pages marked again and again and remembered as great advice?
Because unlike most leadership books that focus on the leader, here the authors, Frances Frei, a Harvard professor & Anne Morriss, a sought after leadership coach offer a different worldview: “leadership is not about you”. Leadership is about #empowering others around you and making sure this impact endures even in your absence.
"Unleashed - The Unapologetic Leader's guide to #empowering everyone around you" is a thought-provoking book that offers practical guidance to leaders on how to create a #culture of empowerment within their organizations.
Frei and Morriss argue that great leaders are those who empower their #teams , and in order to do so, leaders must be unapologetic about their own #values and #priorities .
There are three key themes: #building #trust, #creating a meaningful #mission and #empowering others. Through real-world examples and case studies, the authors provide many valuable insights but also actionable advice that can immediately be put to practice, for #leaders at all levels.
There is marked emphasis on the importance of building trust within an organization. The authors state that trust is the foundation of #effectiveleadership , and they provide a variety of real time #strategies for building trust with employees, customers, and stakeholders.
The authors also focus on creating a meaningful #mission. They argue that a clear and compelling mission can help to align and motivate employees, and they provide practical advice on how to develop a mission statement that is both inspiring and achievable.
In sum, "Unleashed - The Unapologetic Leader's guide to empowering everyone around you" is #insightful, a pleasant read, while at the same time a book that offers #valuable guidance for leaders who are looking to create a #culture of empowerment within their organizations.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in becoming a more #effective and #empowering leader and does not wish to read one more book about #leadership that is focused on…. themselves as a #leader.
Ηope you enjoy reading it!
