Remarkable Leadership: Unleashing Your Leadership Potential One Skill at a Time

Kevin Eikenberry, Author, Jack Canfield, Foreword by Jossey-Bass $27.95 (274p) ISBN 978-0-7879-9619-2
Predicated on the notion that leaders are not born, but are made and remade and made over again, author and consultant Eikenberry provides a guide to honing leadership skills that's succinct and sensible, demonstrating that leading is as much about listening, asking questions and empowering others as it is about charisma and vision. Thirteen chapters enumerate what remarkable leaders do-""learn continually,"" ""communicate powerfully,"" ""influence with impact,"" ""think and act innovatively,"" etc.-and how they do it. In hopes of narrowing the gap between those who aspire to remarkability and those who've already achieved it, Eikenberry provides plenty of ""Now Steps,"" exercises for evaluating and improving one's position that can be implemented in short order. Obvious but edifying techniques include storytelling practice, journaling and building a network of well-nurtured relationships. Eikenberry also offers online resources (""Bonus Bytes"") tied to specific points in the text, available on the book's web site. A solid leadership primer, this book will instruct, if not exactly inspire, anyone looking to manage others more effectively.
