Ambition, charisma, and an innovative approach are valuable qualities, but they don't guarantee that a person will deliver great leadership in a business environment. To make a mark and move ahead, today's managers need hard team-building skills on top of abstract individual leadership traits.

The goal is not only to be respected by your employees, but to cut to the chase in how you evaluate new talent, cultivate it, motivate it, and then assemble a complementary team of people that together more than achieve your quarterly goals. That's leadership that delivers. The goal is to Get Your People to Work Like They Mean It!

This book is unlike any business leadership guide on the market. It reveals the four key responsibilities that every manager must embrace to assemble a high-performance team in today's globally competitive marketplace, operating 24/7 at lightning speed:

  • Deliver consistent leadership role modeling
  • Create a work structure geared towards success
  • Develop the right plan to reach your team's goals
  • Find the right people to make it all happen
