"Tomorrow's Leader: How the Best Leaders Become Better in a Fast-Changing World" presents simple, actionable steps that anyone can follow to find their leadership style, have more influence, and even overcome anxiety as a leader.
Author John Laurito knows that being a leader is a teachable—and learnable—skill. He has spent his career studying, practicing, and teaching leadership. His motivation for the book is not to just share the concepts of leadership but also to teach you how to apply them to your own career. You may discover that tomorrow's leader can be you!
The book begins with the art of self-leadership, which describes setting a course, following it, and correcting as you go. It is important to practice these techniques for yourself before teaching others.
Laurito then takes readers on what he calls the "Journey to Leadership," explaining how to set and achieve goals, the different styles of successful leadership, and the importance of trust within an organization.
The unique storytelling also includes overarching questions about leadership:
• What makes great leaders successful?
• How do effective leaders influence others to achieve great things?
• How do leaders inspire people, sometimes from very diverse backgrounds, to unite behind a shared vision?
• How can one person make a phenomenal difference in the world around them?
Laurito developed his leadership skills throughout a 20-plus-year career in positions at Concord Wealth Management, the Boston Agency of Penn Mutual Life Company, and Ameriprise Financial, where he earned status as a turnaround agent. Today, he has earned an international reputation, teaching leadership to standing-room-only workshops and in private coaching sessions worldwide.
