Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) September 02, 2009 -- Leadership Skills Means Job Security in a Tanking Market with Layoffs Looming
Look at the mess we're in! No wonder we're mad as hell and will no longer put up with the leadership vacuum in our country that has led to economic decline and higher unemployment. A failure in leadership is at the heart of this crisis. There is abundant evidence that across many domains we do not have the leaders we need. Real leaders don't get laid off. They get promoted, reassigned or recruited. Are you recognized as a real leader? Do you have the courage to prepare?
Len Fuchs and John Nicholas, both former military officers and corporate executives with over 50 years of combined leadership experience, joined forces and founded Real Leaders Institute, LLC Their purpose is to bring value to other people's lives by helping them become real leaders. They believe we are at economic war and need real leaders to see us through. In war time, leaders are trained-up fast avoiding all the fluff and getting down to practical skills that work. The authors do this through their fast-track system coupled with their book; You're a Leader - Now What? Knowing What to Do Next.
They reveal how to sharpen your leadership skills using the Law of the Slight Edge - which is "You don't have to be twice as good to be twice as successful; all you need is a slight edge." Example: The fastest Olympic swimmer in the world is only 100ths of a second ahead of number 2. Just a slight edge makes all the difference.
They have developed a rapid way to gain that edge and increase your value to any organization. Apply their 20-10-5 fast track system: Arise 20 minutes earlier than usual, read a chapter a day for just 10 minutes and apply the principles immediately. Repeat the process 5 times and it will become ingrained. The book has 10 chapters that cover the basics every leader, no matter how experienced, must know and apply.
"I started getting my dream assignments," says John, "when I began applying this system. However, simple though it is, it took many years to develop. I had to review many leadership sources, as well as trial and error, over the years. What was needed was one source to shorten the cycle. So, my co-author and I crystallized, organized and distilled our years of experience into one 10 chapter, fast paced, easily applied source that can help almost anyone develop the leadership edge."
