The 30-Minute Leader: Your Guide to Influence, Power, and Transformation
Since 2003, Mark Ames has lived and worked in the Washington, DC – area. During that time, he has led the government relations activities of major national and global nonprofit associations, representing educators, school leaders, engineers, and workplace and community health and safety professionals. Mark currently works with legislators, regulators, nonprofits, and leaders at some of the world’s largest companies to identify and solve critical problems facing businesses, workers, and communities throughout the nation.
Whether you’re an entrepreneur, CEO, team leader, or one in your heart, chances are you’re dealing with one big problem that just won’t go away: how to be an effective leader. It’s likely that you received little, if any, leadership training. Ignoring this problem won’t make it go away and the longer you wait, the worse it gets. You might try to solve this by enrolling in a formal leadership training course or certificate program – but those come with their own problems. These programs can cost $20,000 or more and take up to a year to complete. Let’s be honest: You don’t have that kind of time, and you probably don’t really want to spend that kind of money. Instead, wouldn’t you prefer to make progress now? Rest assured, the answers you’re looking for are within your grasp. As Gene Wilder famously sang in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, “Want to change the world? There’s nothing to it…” In The 30-Minute Leader: Your Guide to Influence, Power, and Transformation, you’ll gain a clear understanding of how understanding each other and how we make decisions can enable you to channel power into influence and become a more effective leader -- benefitting yourself and your organization. This is a journey of discovery and transformation; in the pages to come, you’ll learn how to change yourself and the world. Let’s get started! In The 30-Minute Leader, you’ll learn skills including: • The core elements of effective leadership • How to tap into the hidden power of your environment to maximize your influence • Accelerated learning techniques for yourself, your team, clients, and customers • How to unleash the power of language to improve your communication and influence • How to lead and persuade with effective storytelling • How to decipher body language to deepen empathy, build trust, and strengthen your leadership • How to recognize decision-making shortcuts and use them to your advantage • Master goal-setting and motivations to influence behavior • How to apply the symbolic power of fashion to influence yourself and others • How to uncover your leadership style • How to overcome performance anxiety to let your leadership shine bright
Current and aspiring business, nonprofit, and government leaders.
