Lack of clarity, accountability, and authority can impact businesses in so many ways, and the way people work might help them realize the strategy, or get in the way of it. Most managers don't even know what the strategy really is and how to get there. All of this confusion and discord can be traced to a lack of managerial leadership. The art of managing managers has been lost to the need to be seen as "being busy." This is made doubly difficult with newly remote workforces and dispersed teams. Based on experiences from working with many large and small companies, and a 30-year career as a senior military officer, Julian Chapman demonstrates the power of managerial leadership to address and cure the root causes of the pain felt in organizations and create great places to work in his new book The Managerial Leadership Journey: An Unconventional Business Pursuit.
This pragmatic approach pulls no punches and shows the ongoing path to a workplace where employees at all levels have clarity of role, purpose, accountabilities and authorities. The self-assessments and tools inside will help the readers sort out the work ahead of them. It will show managers the value of thinking before acting, proper planning, working at the right level and holding people accountable. It introduces the power of the Enlightened Leader and Engaged Manager who confidently and continuously build their teams with an approach of authenticity, transformation and servitude.
"A fresh perspective to the interplay between the completion of tasks and the importance of inspiring people, both led by clear strategy." - Michael Read, President, Church & Dwight
