From the Inside Flap:

Too many organizations hold the common, shortsighted assumption that promoting an employee into a leadership position will, by osmosis, result in this person becoming a competent leader. People fail to define what is expected of their organizational leaders, and then claim to be surprised when these newly tapped leaders don't deliver. However, there are some things every leader ought to know before they take the reins, and fortunately, these key leadership principles can be learned.

From Phillip Van Hooser, leadership development advisor to hundreds of top U.S. companies, Leaders Ought To Know teaches all leaders--newly promoted, mid-level, or executives--eleven common sense, universal ground rules that "leaders ought to know" if they intend to lead with purpose, confidence, and effectiveness. By examining real world examples of the dos and don'ts of leadership, executives and managers will gain practical strategies to transform the way they lead their employees.

This comprehensive leadership development guide explains proven leadership concepts, including how to earn an employee's respect, the critical importance of truth telling, a practical strategy for making impactful decisions, and ultimately, how to be taken seriously as a leader. Learn how to do more of the right things while avoiding the common leadership mistakes that trip up so many.

Instill in yourself, and your managers and executives, the principles of great leadership, including how to:

* Take responsibility for your choice to lead
* Know your followers' expectations of you and the appropriate actions to exceed them
* Discover the wants and needs that motivate your followers
* Gain respect by exhibiting consistent behaviors, quality decision-making, and a willingness
   to interact with others
* Communicate difficult truths in an appropriate manner
* And much more practical, timely information for leaders!

Growth-oriented businesses require leaders who generate profits while improving employee performance and retention. Make sure you build a sustainable leadership approach to ensure success for your individual leaders--and your organization.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Leaders Ought to Know

"There are lots of books on leadership, but there are precious few true leaders who have the depth of leadership experience and wisdom of Phillip Van Hooser. In Leaders Ought to Know, Phillip shares lessons born of his experience both as a leader and as a trusted advisor to leaders for over twenty-five years. I don't recommend books lightly, but I absolutely recommend Leaders Ought to Know as a must-read for any leader or those who aspire to be leaders."
—JOE CALLOWAY, author of Be the Best at What Matters Most

"Leaders Ought to Know is the perfect book about leadership skills written by a guy who knows leadership inside and out. Forget about theory—this is all stuff that can be used today, tomorrow, and forever. Phillip looks at issues that may seem complex and breaks them all down into manageable steps that lead to success. You will learn how to ratchet up your performance and in tandem build the skills of the folks on your team."
—JOE SCARLETT, retired chairman of Tractor Supply Company; founder of the Scarlett Leadership Institute

"Phillip Van Hooser lays out a 'flight plan' that will navigate and guide you to your destination—in leadership terms. Leaders Ought to Know is well worth the read and validates and expands on my experiences in leadership roles over many years."
—HOWARD PUTNAM, former CEO of Southwest Airlines; author of The Winds of Turbulence

"This is the book that every follower wants every leader to read and apply. Leaders Ought to Know is filled with Phillip Van Hooser's practical, commonsense wisdom. Don't just read this book, pull out your highlighter and study it. You and those you lead will be more successful and satisfied because you did."
—RANDY G. PENNINGTON, author of Results Rule!: Build a Culture that Blows the Competition Away
