Episode Description

You may know effective leadership doesn't come from telling people what to do. It turns out that leading people without relying on authority usually works *more* effectively than with it. Using authority provokes most people to undermine your authority, even if they comply -- the opposite of your goal. Joshua Spodek's bestselling book, Leadership Step by Step, is used nationwide to teach leadership. He will reveal effective techniques few people know and how to develop them. Leading people you don't have authority over -- bosses, managers, clients, customers, husbands, wives, girlfriends, boyfriends, children, and so on -- builds on social and emotional skills with a goal of revealing and using existing emotions and motivations, not compliance. It's also more fun.
