Your most respected, effective leaders might work as frontline employees, not executives.
Many strong leaders work amid the ranks of your regular employees. Though such “hidden leaders” have little “positional power,” they prove that they are valuable assets to your company by producing exceptional work and harnessing their personal power to amplify the productivity of everyone around them. Consultants Scott K. Edinger and Laurie Sain explain how to identify your hidden leaders and extend their positive influence throughout your organization. The authors offer an added bonus: Their appendix provides many resources that managers can use to identify, assess and promote the leaders hidden in their organizations. getAbstract recommends their advice to companies seeking to leverage the potential of every employee.
In this summary, you will learn
- What traits distinguish your “hidden leaders,”
- How to help hidden leaders flourish
- How to maximize hidden leaders’ influence to fulfill your company’s mission
