Leading From Where You Are: 7 Themes to Make a Meaningful Impact in Your Work
Every day, people make thousands of decisions affecting their lives, from relatively simple, and in many cases unconscious, choices – how hot should the water be before I step into the shower this morning – to more meaningful decisions like how do I invest my time during the day, who do I spend time with, or what do I believe. Of these thousands of daily choices, according to Columbia University decision researcher, Sheena Iyengar, the average American makes about 70 conscious decisions, a miniscule proportion. I’ve anchored this book on one key principle: leadership is a set of conscious choices and behaviors, not a job title. Regardless of your specific role in an organization, you can make a meaningful contribution to the enterprise’s success, which will fuel your success. Use your voice to shape the organization’s direction by Leading from Where you Are. Apply the seven themes discussed in this book in detail, a practitioner’s guide to leadership, to make your impact as a leader.
