In this practical guide, Emmy Award-winning public broadcasting anchor Steve Adubato, teaches readers to be self-aware, empathetic, and more effective leaders at work and at home. His powerful case studies spotlighting dozens of leaders are complemented by concrete tips and tools based in real-life scenarios. With Lessons in Leadership, readers can learn to:
• lead others through difficult economic time
• mentor rising leaders
• provide straight talk to underperforming employees, and
• how to lead a company through a significant change.
In Lessons in Leadership, Adubato synthesizes more than fifteen years of experience writing about leadership in his syndicated column for the New Jersey Star-Ledger, and more recently in numerous business publications. He incorporates lessons he has learned from his coaching with dozens of CEOs and leaders as well as from running his own organization in the arena of public broadcasting for over twenty-five years.
The result is a compelling book that analyzes high-profile leadership successes and failures—such as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots’ response to “Deflate-Gate” and Hillary Clinton’s controversial use of a private email server—as well as unlikely sources such as the Jack Black film School of Rock.
The book will guide not only aspiring leaders who are just entering the workforce but also experienced leaders who are committed to being lifelong learners.
Lessons in Leadership offers lasting leadership strategies that all leaders can implement in different industries and stages of life—both professionally and personally.
