Author and Management Consultant of WorkMatters, Gayle Lantz is pleased to announce the release of her new book, Take the Bull by the Horns: The Busy Leader’s Action Guide to Growing Your Business…and Yourself.
“Executive decision making is being put to the test now more than ever,” comments Lantz.
“Leaders are juggling a variety of issues that affect their business and personal success. They are hungry for easy-to-use tools to help them lead their teams and manage their businesses most effectively. Many have trouble coming up for air.
“The key is thinking more clearly and taking action in the areas that will produce best results.”
The author asserts that executives, leaders, managers, owners and entrepreneurs can take charge by taking just a few minutes each week to think more clearly so they can take smart action.
Take the Bull by the Horns was developed to serve as a timely leadership development tool to help leaders stay motivated and accomplish their goals in challenging times.
She adds, “The book can be used as a personal thinking guide or as a discussion catalyst with leadership teams.”
Take the Bull by the Horns is comprised of 52 easy-to-read chapters that can be structured as a weekly guide for leaders and/or their teams.
A separate team leader/facilitator guide will be made available in the near future.
Key topics addressed in Take the Bull by the Horns include:
- Company Vision
- Team Development
- Business Strategy
- Organizational Culture
- Talent Management
“Take the Bull by the Horns is a must read for busy leaders because it condenses so much timeless wisdom in one place,” comments Andy Martin, President of First Protective.
Selected excerpts from Take the Bull by the Horns:
“Leadership development is not formulaic. It’s not a series of steps. People are complicated. You’re operating in a complex business environment. No one model works for everyone.”
“Today’s leaders must take the bull by the horns themselves to grow and develop themselves and to be a catalyst, coach or mentor to support the growth of those they lead.”
“The key to success has to do with, not only the quality of the talent in your organization, but the quality of thinking you do as a leader.”
“Good leaders are good thinkers and doers. They do not accept status quo or discontentment. They do something about it.”
