There are a lot of misconceptions around what leadership actually is. Many people have the Richard Branson model of leadership in mind – and think that is somewhat unattainable. This book will debunk the myths that there is only one sort of leadership personality, with charisma and good looks, and that leadership is about being in a fancy office with a fancy suit. This book will also address these common fears:
Do What You Say You'll Do will give you practical tools that will help you plan how to lead your team. A lot of new leaders just don't know where to start and then it all becomes too hard. This book will enable you to find your authentic voice: what makes you who you are and play to your strengths. This book is not about making you into something that you're not. It's about giving you tools that great leaders use and showing you that no matter who you are, you can use them too.
The book has some amazing contributions from leadership experts around Australia and interviews with leaders such as Dr Fiona Wood (one of Australia's most innovative and respected surgeons and researchers) and Brian Cook (CEO of Geelong Football Club). You will get to learn from what has worked (and not worked) for others, and see how that applies to your life and your leadership journey.
The learning doesn't end when you finish the book. Once the book is published, the resources page goes live on the website. Each chapter has supplementary resources to access including full interviews with some of the people that have been interviewed for this book.
This is not your typical academic tome, or dry leadership book. This won't lecture you, or require that you have a dictionary next to you to understand what is being written. It's been written so that it is accessible and easy to read. It is also written in easy to digest sections so that you can read it on your way to work, or over a quick sandwich at lunch.
