Making Managers into Leaders (previous title of Leadership Made Simple) will greatly improve how managers work with people. Managing will even become simple, fun and effective in developing the leadership skills of anyone who reads it. Once you experience our simple Framework for Leadership-TM to solve one of your most critical issues, you will never do things the same again especially when it comes to people! You ll be amazed at the simplicity and effectiveness of the Making Managers into Leaders concepts and tools. The Framework for Leadership-TM takes advantage of two fundamental concepts important in working with people, teams and organizations. The first concept is what we call Forward Focus. In the challenging world we live in, it s so easy for people to see all the reasons they can t get something done, or why it can t be done on time or on budget. A critical leadership responsibility is to keep people focused on the solution more than the problem. The Framework focuses you on the solutions and what a great place to be when looking at the leadership skill development of the people in your organization. The second concept is the idea that the people in the organization have the answers to the challenges they face. They are intelligent, smart, creative and understand the situation better than anyone else. If we just ask them the right questions, they ll come up with the creative solutions. Asking those right questions is a critical role of leadership and could be a part of any leadership skills training. The Framework guides you to asking the right questions.

Review:

I think we all have a view on leadership and what it means, including me! I was delightfully surprised in reading Making Managers into Leaders by Ed Oakley and Doug Krug. They drew me in right away and I found myself taking notes in the book-something I haven't done for a long time. I really enjoyed their section on "The Answers Are in the Room" and specifically, when they wrote: The quality of the answers you get depends on the quality of the questions you ask. Many times I've wanted to blame others for my lack of quality questions. They provide eight questions that the best leaders ask consistently and frequently-and give readers real world insights. I think whether you are a young manager at a Starbucks or climbing the ladder at Alcon Laboratories, you will find some great insights and solutions to your management challenges. Enjoy this book!

If you want to know the quality of a book, it is useful to look first at the author. So, a book on leadership ought to come from a good leader. Right? Ed Oakley is such a person. I've known him as a colleague for decades and I've seen him in a variety of situations. He is a person worthy of your respect. He is savvy and focused when it comes to succeeding. He is interested in others and a caring friend. He's a generous guy who willingly shares his ideas and offers encouragement. I trust him. Therefore I trust his works. What he and his trusted coauthor (whom I don't yet know well) have done is clarify the real issues in leadership. Not the lofty strategies but the simple concepts and tactics that will make a difference for you. This is a book that is easy to read and profound in its solutions. Follow these leaders and you will be a better leader. Jim Cathcart, founder, 101 Leaders Alliance author: The Acorn Principle --Jim Cathcart
