THE SMART LEADER reveals profound truths about what it takes to be an effective leader within an organizational structure. You will find a contemporary and suspenseful situational narrative introducing each chapter. The storyline of each narrative involves a protagonist who learns some tough lessons about being a leader.
Following each narrative is a candid discussion that walks you through the What, Why, How and When associated with the “Skinny Principle”. You will be provided specific actions you can take to address shortcomings in your leadership skills and behavior. This will allow you to gain some reality-based insights and an immediate increase in performance.
Throughout the book you will find pertinent quotes by many of the legendary and contemporary “thought leaders” of our time. There’s no way to overestimate the importance of learning from knowledge experts and other leaders.
“I have a shelf full of leadership books. With rare exceptions, those books don’t really help anyone lead in the real world. But, Earl and Charlotte’s new book, “The SMART Leader, sure does. If you only get one book on leadership this year, make it this one. Simple and insightful guidelines, and stories that stick. You can’t beat it!”
– Doug Russell, Financial Coach and Author of “Every-Day Living: Memories of a Family from Blaine, North Carolina”.
