Do you want to move your company in a new direction? Fearless Leadership provides you with the tools to successfully drive change, overcome obstacles, and engage and align people in working effectively together to achieve your business objectives.

Leadership guru Dr. Loretta Malandro has developed a groundbreaking behavior-based methodology that is used around the globe to create top-performing leaders and high-performance organizations. It is based on a simple but profound concept: In order to change your organization, you must be willing to alter your behavior and help others make the choice to change their behavior. This means demanding 100% accountability from your people--and yourself.

In today's ultra-competitive business environment, a new leadership approach is needed. Fearless Leadership takes you step by step through the process of raising behavioral standards that directly impact the bottom line. You will learn the secrets behind:

  • Confronting the blind spots that sabotage success
  • Overcoming the success-strangling “need to be right”
  • Eliminating silo mentality and building committed partnerships
  • Ending compliance and gaining full support and alignment
  • Talking straight and confronting difficult situations head on
  • Building a culture of 100% accountability

    Too many people in leadership positions attempt to enact change through systemic means, such as restructuring or altering processes. The secret to real and lasting change lies in changing behavior--how people work together. Change the level of ownership and performance of people and you will transform your organization.

    Leaders who are able to act courageously when faced with uncertainty or fear, take bold stands, and engage with people in very real ways are those who generate great and long-lasting results. Fearless Leadership shows you how.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and Impactful Message – What Leadership is REALLY about. Most leadership books provide a pleasant 30,000 foot level view of a wonderful world of “do this” and all will be good, and your team will perform like a well maintained Indie race car. Truth is that the world isn’t always as rosy, and doesn’t always work as theoretically neatly as the academic books on the subject. The reality is that leadership is a difficult job. It is great, and can even be easy when everything is going well. It can be intense, dark, and fantastically difficult when things are not going well (like during a recession). Fearless Leadership deals with how to keep out of slipping into the negative habits of some leadership styles. Loretta Malandro provides many excellent charts to describe various scenarios, and explains some of her difficult – work. The book is really about straight communication, getting to the team rationally, and emotionally, and about watching for your own blind-spots. Fearless Leadership gives you some straight-up difficult suggestions for running your team, and avoiding having it become a dysfunctional team. These are tough solutions. The consequences of NOT following the solutions are worse. Excellent read!
