Leadership Excellence: Approaches, Tools, Strategies, Ethics & Attitude To Improve Your Performance
Authored by Paul Oppong
The concept of leadership is incredibly complex and diverse. What are the main types and styles of leadership? How should we use them? Is it possible to learn how to become a better leader? These are just some of the questions we will address in “Leadership Excellence”.
It is not a coincidence that the book that seeks to offer advice on how to improve performance in any organisation and team relies heavily on the modern concepts of leadership.
We have learnt so much since the early days when everyone believed that leaders were born, not made. But it is possible to improve your leadership skills and become someone others can rely on. That is the essence- being accountable, honest, confident, and open-minded. Being in tune with employees and their emotions.
Here are the two main types of leadership that we will talk about often:
1. Transformational leadership
2. Transactional leadership
Transformational leaders are often relying on subjective perceptions of employees and are trying to establish a more meaningful relationship that will result in better performance.
On the other hand, transactional leaders are more focused on the work process structure, organization, and strict management. Transformational leadership includes concepts like inspiration, motivation, and empathy. Transactional leaders are less focused on these emotional aspects and pay more attention to ensuring that the production process flows seamlessly.
Modern leaders must learn new things every day. And “Leadership Excellence” offers several possible directions, pathways, and alleys you can choose from. Whether you are simply trying to “up your game” or if you aspire to become a good leader somewhere in the future, this book is the best starting point for you.
There are no easy recipes for success- there is only a life-long determination, a quest to improve yourself and others. This book offers no easy solutions, simply because there are no easy solutions. Your perseverance, determination, and mental strength will make the difference, nothing less, nothing more.
