How can you become a better leader? Leadership training expert Steve Arneson provides 50 different leadership development ideas he has tested at such Fortune 500 companies as PepsiCo, AOL and Capital One. Few of Arneson’s ideas require money, but they all take commitment. You can learn how to become a better leader by reading his book and following his suggestions. With so many different topics, Arneson offers a plethora of valuable tips about strengthening your leadership skills. Most of his suggestions are very solid, though some are a little silly (show your colleagues a PowerPoint presentation about your career) and some are routine (“always sit up straight, put on a positive attitude and dress sharp”). Arneson is a respected leadership coach with a great deal to offer executives who want to become better leaders. getAbstract believes that astute readers will appreciate his advice and tailor it to meet their individual circumstances.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What good leaders do to succeed.
