Sintesi dell'editore

Recent polls show that 71% of workers think about quitting their jobs every day. That number would be shocking-if people actually were quitting. Worse, they go to work, punching time clocks and collecting pay checks, while completely checked out emotionally. In Reality-Based Leadership, expert Fast Company blogger Cy Wakeman reveals how to be the kind of leader who changes the way people think about and perceive their circumstances-one who deals with the facts, clarifies roles, gives clear and direct feedback, and insists that everyone do the same-without drama or defensiveness.

Filled with dynamic examples, innovative tools, and diagnostic tests, this book shows you how to become a Reality-Based Leader, revealing how to:

  • Uncover destructive thought patterns with yourself and others
  • Diffuse drama and lead the person in front of you
  • Stop managing and start leading, empowering others to focus on facts and think for themselves

Equipped with a facts-based, confident approach, you will free yourself from the frustrations you face at work and transform yourself into a Reality-Based Leader, with the ability to liberate and inspire others.

Passing the buck

Have read this book a couple times and been in leadership seminars with the author. States it is about accountability and engagement. Really it is about passing the buck and leading through intimidation. Better books to read are the Speed of Trust and any Quint Studor books. Those are about developing a culture of engagement.

Excellent book on leadership

I had no idea what to expect of this book based on the title. I learned of Cy Wakeman from a joint podcast with Sasha Shillcutt of Brave Enough. It was so helpful I listened to other podcasts and learned of this book. I took so many notes that I am tempted to buy the written book in addition. It is both affirming and challenging. A fresh look at leadership with very practical and immediately actionable recommendations. Her examples are very helpful in painting a picture of how to implement the concepts. I look forward to reading more from Cy Wakeman.

wow...I was fired for ignorance

I really wish I had listen to this book while I was in college. Like most people miss world I have experienced what it is like to be fired from a job. Based on the knowledge I received from this book I firmly believe I never would have been fired had I been able to access this information beforehand

Great input for leaders!

This is not your traditional leadership book. And if you’re looking for a book to make you feel like you’re doing a great job as a leader, look elsewhere. But this is exactly what I have been needing. I inherited a team a little over two years ago that has been full of drama and conflict. The practical lessons from this book have already been initiating ideas for me and I have even started implementing some. It hasn’t been met with as much resistance as I had expected! I’m so glad this book was referred to me!!!

This Book changed my life

What made the experience of listening to Reality Based Leadership the most enjoyable?

Thsi is quiet simply teh best book I have ever read in my life.
Im a business owner with 30+ staff, so you can imaging the dramas that idea with on a daily basis. The book teaches you that most of the drama is self created, how to step above what is creating drama in your life and business.

What did you like best about this story?

I would listen to it as i was heading to the office and used the content to prepare myself to deal with any situations

Any additional comments?

I have recommended this to all my friends that manage people or have a business. It is an eye opener and teaches you to retrain yourself on how to deal with people and situations, something I would have never thought possible.
