9780743250016: The Leadership Pill: The Missing Ingredient in Motivating People Today

In the bestselling tradition of Whale Done! and The One Minute Manager, their entertaining and inspiring new book is a parable about the competition between two leaders with totally different management styles—a story that reveals the ingredients of truly effective leadership.

How can you become a more successful manager, a stronger team leader, and a motivator who gets the best results from a group? Ken Blanchard and Marc Muchnick's The Leadership Pill provides the answer.

Consider this tantalizing possibility: What if there were 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 readers, The Leadership Pill shows business managers at any level how to apply the right techniques for getting both results and the commitment of their people, even when the pressure to perform is high.

Introduction

Today's workforce is more sophisticated, diverse, and informed than ever before. As a result, the "my way or the highway" command-and-control approach to management doesn't cut it anymore. Ultimately, people are looking for something different -- and better -- in organizational leadership. They demand leaders who not only get results, but who win the trust and respect of their teams.

The Leadership Pill is a fun parable that underscores the need for leaders to show integrity, build a culture of partnership, and affirm people's sense of self-worth by letting them know that what they do is important. Our belief is that when you tune in to what people really want, you can outperform anyone -- even someone who thinks they have found the perfect Leadership Pill.

We hope you will read this book to discover what it really takes to become an Effective Leader, and then perhaps share it with others who will benefit from the powerful message and learning points it contains. Remember, leadership is not something you do to people, it's something you do with them.

Our very best,

Ken and Marc

San Diego, California
