There are extreme situations where having an in-front leader calling the shots is necessary; usually in times of immediate danger or crisis. The majority of interactions, however, are not this dire and actually benefit from having a variety of leaders contributing. 

"Whether it's building a strategic plan, launching a new product, running a kids' soccer league or managing a non-profit, having access to leadership throughout the enterprise is a major advantage in that it brings a variety of perspectives, experience, and skills to bear."

It's important to recognize that leadership doesn't always have to come from the front. There are many ways that members of the organization can contribute regardless of their title. Download the first chapter of Do Lead today and start learning how to inspire leadership within all of your team members.

A personal welcome to you

Hey, thanks for popping over to Do: Lead - I'm genuinely pleased to see you here.

Let me introduce myself, tell you what's going on here, and answer a few other of your questions:

Q: Who the heck are you?

A: I'm Les McKeown, and I'm the author of the best-selling "Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization On the Growth Track - and Keeping It There" and "The Synergist: How to Lead Your Team to Predictable Success".

Q: What's this site for?

A: To sell my latest book, "Do Lead: Share your vision. Inspire others. Achieve the impossible", the third in the Predictable Success trilogy.

Q: What's the book about?

A: How to lead anyone, at any time, even if you're not their de facto leader.

Q: Who's it for?

A: Anyone who wants to lead (even if intermittently), and anyone who wants to release the huge, untapped reservoir of leadership in their organization.

Q: Why is it called "Do: Lead"?

A: Do: Lead is part of a wonderful collection of books that grew out of the equally wonderful (and life-changing) Do Lectures.

Q: Why should I care?

A: Most leadership books released in the last 30 years present an unreal concept of what leadership truly is. This book re-defines leadership in a way that will change your life.

Q: I like the sound of that - can I read some of it?

A: Sure - there's a free excerpt available right here. Enjoy - and while you're there, why not enter our exciting competition?

Q: Competition? What competition?

A: I'm so convinced of the power of the principles in Do: Lead that I'm offering $100,000 in free consulting to the organization that shares the best example of "Do Leadership" in action. Want in?

Q: I'm sold - where can I get the darn thing?
