Influential Leadership: Change Your Behavior, Change Your Organization, Change Health Care
An author, educator and consultant, Michael Frisina, PhD, recently released his latest book, Influential Leadership, written to help leaders understand the link between behavior and peak performance and help readers see how their behaviors affect (negatively or positively) the outcome of their work, the lives of those around them and the overall performance of their organization. Dr. Frisina explains critical concepts to achieve organizational excellence and inspire better performance through influential leadership. The book's focus is on behavior and on doing, setting it apart from other leadership titles.
Influential Leadership reveals how successful and effective leaders are driven by a set of behaviors that enables them to become role models for followers, guide operational improvements, and sustain excellence.
Influential Leadership explains critical concepts to achieve organizational excellence and inspire better performance through influential leadership. The book's focus is on behavior (rather than technical skills) and on doing (in addition to knowing) which sets it apart from other leadership titles. The book helps readers see how their behaviors affect (negatively or positively) the outcome of their work, the lives of those around them, and the overall performance of their organization. It illustrates how the ability to become an influential leader is directly proportional to the ability to manage behavior and the way it affects others.
Influential Leadership reveals...
how good people skills—trust and accountability, not processes—can strengthen or weaken the organization's pursuit of performance excellence.
how to engage staff who are disconnected from their leaders and emotionally disconnected from their work and its accomplishment.
how to recognize and correct situations where negative behavior such as low employee morale leads to work disengagement, mistrust and poor performance.
how leaders and staff will change their behavior when they understand how it affects the outcome of their work, the lives of those around them and the organization's performance.
how self-aware, influential leaders are in a better position to collaborate and connect with others and to lead the organization to success.
Leaders make things happen. Influential leaders go a step further by making a positive difference in organizations and in the lives of people who both serve and are served by the organization. Influential leaders perform at a higher level, are more productive, and achieve greater results than other leaders with similar circumstances and resources.
