Book Description

Leadership isn’t an elite act. We can all, any of us, lead at any time – and more of us should be than are.


In this book, you’ll learn what it truly means to lead, and how to do it (if you want to). In the first part of the book we’ll demolish the 4 myths that have paralyzed leadership in our modern era.

You’ll learn that leadership is often mundane, that it can be undertaken by anyone and that true leadership happens every day, not just at times of crisis.


In the second half of Do Lead, I provide you with the tools you’ll need to be an impactful leader: The mindset required; the basic leadership toolkit; techniques for dealing with the (inevitable) failures, and a guide to how to get started.


My goal is that by the time you’ve finished the first half of this short book, you will decide that you too can lead – and make a real difference in whatever your sphere of influence; and that part two of the book will give you everything you need to make a poignant start. If you’re already a leader, I believe this book will help reignite your passion for leadership and will give you a new perspective – and some new tools to make your leadership even more effective.

Praise for Do Lead

If you don’t think of yourself as a leader – think again. Les McKeown shows you how to be a great one. This is a must read for anyone who leads (or wants to lead) a company, team or group.
— JJ Ramberg, Host of MSNBC’s Your Business
 
Les McKeown’s latest book, Do Lead, is a thoroughly refreshing take on what real leadership is all about. It is not about heroics or headlines, it is about achieving real results in the here and now. It’s short, to the point, and not to be missed
— Rita McGrath, Professor at Columbia Business School and Author of the #1 General Business Book of 2013 The End of Competitive Advantage
When Les writes, I read. Don’t be deceived by this book’s diminutive size – it’s like a rich, chunk of leadership fudge that you never want to end. This eye-opening, challenging, and encouraging book may be small, but it packs a big punch.
— Steve McKee, President of McKee Wallwork & Company, BusinessWeek Columnist, and Award-winning Author of Power Branding
