9781626340565: A Leader's Gift: How to Earn the Right to Be Followed

Employees give their all to leaders who are open to, invest time in, listen to, encourage, and appreciate them

You can no longer count on old motivational tricks to inspire loyalty among your associates. The rules of leading have changed, and now you must be able to take a diverse team and win with them quickly.

Barry Banther knows how to equip you for today's business world because he knows what lasting leadership is made of. He has identified five qualities that aren't things leaders have; rather, they are things they give away freely and frequently to everyone they lead in the workplace. By embracing and demonstrating the five qualities expounded in this book, you will become a leader who brings out the best in your associates, whether you're a new manager or you occupy a C-suite office.

Banther consults with and trains the teams of CEOs of family-owned as well as Fortune 100 companies. He has been the lead consultant on more than 400 leadership development engagements and has written 50-plus leadership training programs that are used by companies worldwide. After a career in broadcasting and, later, teaching and administration at the college level, Banther served three Florida governors as their appointee to oversee private higher education and was elected to an unprecedented three terms as chairman of the Florida State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities.

Having learned the hard way--caring about numbers rather than people--Banther can tell you with confidence that when leaders put others first they themselves become more valuable to their team and their company than any authority or job title could ever mandate! That's also the best way to grow your bottom line: deploy the right people with the right skills at the right time to create loyal and repeat customers!

About the Author:

Barry Banther, CMC, CSP, is president and CEO of Banther Consulting Corporation and Banther Family Advisors. His clients include Fortune 100 companies like Pfizer, Eli Lilly, and Rockwell International, as well as midsize to large regional businesses throughout the United States. He has written more than fifty leadership-training programs, a body of work that has earned him the highest accreditation from the Institute of Management Consultants as a Certified Management Consultant and from the National Speakers Association as a Certified Speaking Professional. He is one of fewer than sixty professionals worldwide to hold both designations.

Review:

''Barry's five, simple steps reinforce the truth behind leadership: successful leaders give more than they take. A Leader's Gift can help you fundamentally change your leadership style to get the best out of your business, your employees and the best out of yourself.'' - Melinda F. Emerson, SmallBizLady, Bestselling author of Become Your Own Boss in 12 Months

''Barry understands the difference between being called a leader and being a leader. He challenges you to self-reflect on your style and this is a benefit whether you are an established, new or aspiring leader. His five gifts outline exactly how being a selfless leader can benefit your team's engagement, motivation, morale and bottom line.'' - Ken Wright, former CEO of Westpac Financial Services and award winning author of The People Pill

''A Leader's Gift gives smart advice about being a leader that makes a difference. Barry makes you feel like you're getting coached by a friend, not an advisor.'' - Peter van Stralen, author of C.A.R.E. Leadership, CEO, Sunshine Brands™- The Grounds Guys®, The Sprinkler Guys®

''Easy-to-read, practical advice that helps you evaluate your leadership style and challenges you to do better by your company, your colleagues, and yourself.'' - Lesley Hanak, Vice President for Human Resources, Savannah College of Art and Design

''Barry shows that the bottom line isn't made up of numbers; it's made up of human potential. A Leader's Gift offers five actionable steps to help first-time leaders and C-suite executives tap that potential and get the best out of their employees. Implementing these simple changes every day will make a world of difference!'' - Laura Stack, speaker and author of Execution IS the Strategy, Past President, National Speakers Association

''This wonderful book shows you what to do to bring out the best in every person, and get greater results as a leader and manager than ever before.'' - Brian Tracy, Author, How The Best Leaders Lead

''Unlike most leadership books, author Barry Banther has actual experience in the trenches of the business world!!! In A Leader's Gift, the author lays his entire career bare as a learning tool -- the wins, the losses, and the hard won lessons -- and gives the reader an extraordinary guidebook for today's leaders to follow. As a former C-Level Executive I HIGHLY recommend this book for your personal library. If you are serious about leading today's tech-savvy, independent thinking workforce, I suggest you immerse yourself in Barry's guidance.'' --- Brad Szollose, Global Business Advisor, Web Pioneer, Cross-Generational Expert, Award-Winning Business Author of Liquid Leadership: From Woodstock to Wikipedia
