How can I help? Isn't that the question every leader longs to hear? What if every person on your team consistently asked you, How can I help? What if your team was totally in sync with and committed to achieving your organizations objectives? What if everyone on your team was willing to leave their comfort zone and take a risk to help your team win? Impossible? Unrealistic? Pollyanna? No. The team with the best leader usually wins. Sounds simple...but what does it take to be the best leader? Often what is missing is the understanding of how to lead others toward a common goal. In its simplest form, leadership comes down to answering six key questions that are important to your team. When your team s needs are being met, they will want to ask you The Magic Question: How can I help? If you depend on results from others, this book is for you. It offers a proven method for creating an atmosphere in which employees willingly give discretionary effort. The Magic Question is not about a new leadership strategy. Strategies come and go.
