Facilitative Leadership: Seven Practices for Tapping the Power of Collaborative Action
DescriptionA practical seven-step framework for more effective leadership
Facilitative Leadership provides clear guidance for the leaders of today. Whether you lead a team, a project, or an organization, you want to deliver exceptional results—but are your people willing to go the extra mile? Or do you encounter resistance, obstacles, and problems every step of the way? Leadership is no longer about intimidation or sky-high promises; today's workers see right through the old approaches that lost relevance long ago. To be truly effective, modern leaders must empower their people to join forces toward a common goal. They must model the flexibility, collaboration, and receptivity they need, and transfer these skills to others. They must be experts at winning, and architects of work-life balance. This book gives you a clear-cut framework for becoming a more effective leader, and in turn, improving the performance of your team.
Facilitative leadership pulls people together to get the job done. By adopting these key practices, you'll recognize the power of your influence; as you improve, so does your team—and in the end, the results will speak for themselves.
- Empower people to work together
- Share responsibility for success—and failure
- Be collaborative, strategic, receptive, and flexible
- Improve your leadership's effectiveness at any level
Becoming a leader is easy; leading is not. Those who lead effectively remember that the position is much more than a title, it's a responsibility to the team, each individual on the team, and the organization as a whole. If you want to deliver at a higher level, your team must perform at a higher level—and it all begins with you. Facilitative Leadership shows you how to inspire, motivate, and guide your team to the top.
