The Cornerstones of Engaging Leadership
A Volume in the Practical Leader Series
Casey Wilson

A Unique, Hands-On Approach to Becoming an Engaging Leader! The traditional command-oriented leadership style is not enough to keep today’s employees motivated—they need to be engaged. The Cornerstones of Engaging Leadership connects what we know about engagement on an organizational level to what an individual leader can do to increase engagement. Using real-world examples, author Casey Wilson reveals the key actions leaders must take to connect with and engage others—build trust, leverage unique motivators, manage performance from a people-centric perspective, and engage emotions.

By committing to these four cornerstones of engaging leadership, leaders can unleash the potential of others and inspire effective performance. Through practice tools and exercises, readers are challenged to explore, reflect upon, and apply key concepts and techniques of the engaging leader approach.

The Five Commitments of a Leader
A Volume in the Practical Leader Series
Mark Leheney

Effective Leaders Don’t List Commitments... They Live Commitments! Our concepts of leadership are usually based on our unique personal experiences, and it is clear that in leadership, one size does not fit all. In The Five Commitments of a Leader, author Mark Leheney asserts that a more revealing way to examine leadership is through the commitments a leader makes (or fails to make). He focuses on five commitments a leader must make to be effective—commitments to the self, people, the organization, the truth, and leadership.

As Leheney delves into what a commitment to each area means, he challenges leaders to understand stated versus actual commitments, and through self-assessment and practice tools, he encourages leaders to ask themselves accountability-creating questions along the way.
