The Top Ten Ways To Be A Great Leader

The latest from Hans.  This is a sequel to the Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make.

After 30 years in the trenches of leadership, I decided to ask the question, "What are the most important skills every new leader should master?" I came up with an acrostic for the word LEADERSHIP. Each chapter of this book, 10 chapters in all, outlines an essential skill every leader must master. The "Top 10 Mistakes Leaders Make" is about pitfalls to avoid. This book is about essential skills every leader needs to be successful. – Hans Finzel

The Power of Passion in Leadership: Lead From Your Heart, Not Just Your Head

Do you do what I love and love what you do? How many of us are stuck in day jobs that really don't suit us? Has our heart left the building? In this short new passion-packed book by Dr. Hans Finzel, you will learn what it means to work in your "passion zone." Hans explains from his own journey, how to find your passion zone and what action steps to take if you are far from that place of fulfillment.

People love following leaders whose hearts are fueled by passion. This book will help you uncover what passion in your work really is, and how to find it, no matter what stage you are at in your career. The advice in this book is especially powerful for anyone in a role of leadership that is experiencing boredom or burn out. Life is too short to settle for less than the best—especially if we are called to lead other people.
