How can you become a more successful manager, a stronger team leader and a motivator who gets the best results from a group? Ken Blanchard's inspiring new book provides the answer. In a beguiling, sometimes humorous fashion, THE LEADERSHIP PILL conjures up a tantalizing possibility: What if there was a pill that could stimulate the natural powers of the mind and body to provide leadership? In the story, an amazing new pill heightens one leader's powers, but contains the wrong ingredients, stimulating him in a short-sighted direction. He is coercive, obsessed with immediate results and drives his team relentlessly until, after a brief spike in performance, they suffer early burnout. In contrast, the 'Effective Leader', working without a pill, inspires and supports his team. He supplies the right ingredients, earning the respect and trust of his team with a blend of integrity, partnership and affirmation. Ultimately it is recognised that there is more to effective leadership than a wonder 'pill'. Destined to be a transforming experience for thousands of readers, THE LEADERSHIP PILL shows how to apply the right techniques, no matter how pressured a business situation.
