This title features seven stories for leadership transformation. How does a good manager become a superb leader? Ask around in business circles, and you'll get as many different answers as you ask people. Renowned leadership expert Peter Fuda interviewed thousands of successful business leaders, and found their different stories condensed to seven distinct, yet interconnected, metaphors through which these highly effective leaders framed their success: Fire (ambition), Snowball (the virtuous circle), Master Chef (expert tools and strategies), Coach (education), Mask (authenticity), Movie (self-reflection) and Russian Dolls (journey). If you feel burnt out and lacking direction, Fuda can help you discover the inner 'fire' to get you inspired again, or remove the 'mask' that defines your persona at work to open you up to new possibilities. Leadership Transformed provides a fresh look at leadership, based on hard data and serious research. Within these disparate stories lie several common threads, which can help you absorb their insights and set about your own transformation into the leader you want to be.
