How has the leader's role changed, and where is it evolving? What skills and qualities do tomorrow's leaders need most? What's the best advice you ever got on leadership? How would you sum up a good leader? If you ask fifty-five community leaders, you'll get fifty-five different perspectives. You'll also get a collection of insights to help you stretch your own leadership skills, and improve communication, teamwork, productivity and results. The leaders in this book are chosen from big corporations and small businesses, government agencies and non-profit organizations. They are men and women who represent different generations and various backgrounds. Chris Waugh scheduled five-minute interviews with each of them, and the transcriptions became the short chapters in this book. You get their insights - on the fly.
