Description
Why is it that most of the principles and ideas we are inspired with when we read leadership books rarely end up leaving the page? Because we've learned what successful leaders are doing, as well as why we should be implementing it ourselves, but we have no idea how we can specifically do all this in our unique circumstances. Leadership Step by Step walks readers through what to do and how to do it by taking them through an integrated and comprehensive progression of exercises designed to cultivate key abilities, behaviors, and beliefs through experience. Each chapter opens with a story demonstrating a vital leadership skill, but it doesn't stop there. Because next it guides you through the process of developing that skill for yourself! By the end of the 22 exercises in this hands-on book, readers will learn to:
  • Build self-awareness
  • Manage emotions
  • Speak in an authentic voice
  • Create meaningful connections
  • Inspire others
  • And much more!Don't be content with simply learning what makes a great leader. Take the time to put in the work building those character traits inside you. Be that leader you've read so much about!

          Starred review from February 1, 2017
          Before thinking of Spodek's book as yet another HR-type tome, ask yourself, How does anyone learn to leadoutside of business school and institutes devoted to that subject? Taking a page or two from the performing arts, Spodek bases his advice on a simple rubric: practice, practice, practice. In Spodek's plan, becoming a leader who's followed and respected involves four progressive goals (understanding yourself, leading yourself, understanding others, leading otherswhich are a lot more difficult than these simple headings sound) with 22 total exercises. Every chapter is one step, containing one exercise with instructions, a checklist, questions to reflect on, and post-exercises. The process itself involves much introspection, some dedicated time, and the real opportunity to become a leader. As just one example: to find your authentic voice, capture your inner monologuesand practice them with others. Think about Martin Luther King Jr.'s I have a dream speech or Victor Frankl's memoir of the Holocaust in terms of voicing beliefs. This is practical leadership training made perfect.
