Do you think you’re a good leader? How would you know? From the writers of Emotional Intelligence 2.0 comes a great new book, Leadership 2.0. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is look at yourself clearly and objectively. Whether you’re a CEO, small business owner or a group leader everyone needs leadership skills to succeed. Leadership 2.0 breaks down all levels on what makes a great leader and helps you develop those skills. With 22 leadership skills defined and an on-line self-assessment tool you can learn the secrets of great leaders. The book provides access to 360 Refined tm online testing, a program designed to test yourself objectively. This testing helps you identify your weaknesses and provides you with the tools to correct them. The objectivity and individual assessment is the most useful component of the book. Most people will not tell their bosses what they are doing wrong in an organization. The information provided will help you communicate more clearly; learn to seek knowledge over information; mobilize others and learn to embrace flexibility. So if you want to take your business or career to the next level I highly recommend this book.
