LEAD NOW! (Second Edition)
A Personal Leadership Coaching Guide for Results-Driven Leaders
Master the art of leadership.
Some are called on to lead. Others are driven to seek a leadership role. However you have come into your leadership position—whether you are just starting out, or have put in years of effort—one singular truth remains the same: the learning never ends.
In this revised and updated edition of the LEAD NOW! handbook, internationally recognized leadership coaches John Parker Stewart and Daniel Stewart provide busy leaders with hundreds of sparkling bits of insightful advice for continuous improvement. Based on the comprehensive LEAD NOW! Leadership Development Model, this invaluable resource arms you with an instant leadership development solution complete with actionable tips across twenty-one Leadership Dimensions, encompassing four areas of great leadership: Create Purpose, Deliver Excellence, Develop Self & Others, and Lead Change.
Drawing on the authors’ work with top-level leaders across a host of Fortune 500 organizations, small to mid-sized companies, government agencies, and start-ups; four decades of proprietary 360-degree and team assessments; and industry best practices and academic research, LEAD NOW! offers you a solid foundation upon which to build and refine your skills as you practice the art of being a leader in today’s changing environment.
Whether you are leading a coaching engagement, a workshop, or a larger leadership program, each new leadership responsibility requires new skills and mindsets to be successful. Leadership is a craft—a set of unique skills that requires dedicated practice. It is a journey, not a destination. LEAD NOW! is the handbook for you, your team, and your organization for continued growth, results, and ongoing success.
“LEAD NOW! is your handbook to leadership success!”
“Solid, purposeful leadership is the cornerstone of any high-performing team. I have used the philosophy in LEAD NOW! and the many tools associated with it for myself and my leadership teams over numerous years—it’s still as relevant today as it was on day one. Given the amount of quick, relatable material you can find, there are always copies of Stewart Leadership books on my desk to reference on a weekly basis.”
“LEAD NOW! and the leadership principles it subscribes to has been an essential resource for me and our organization. Whether you are leading a company or a group of ten to thousands of employees, this is a must-read and an invaluable tool for success.”
“LEAD NOW! is absolutely essential for all leaders everywhere! John Parker Stewart and Daniel J. Stewart’s insight is fiercely accurate. Their advice and tips get right to the point on critical issues facing leaders today and provide no-nonsense guidance to steer through very difficult times.”
“As a firm believer and follower of the LEAD NOW! Model, I couldn’t be more excited about this second edition. I have always enjoyed the simple and balanced approach that this model used. Being a busy executive, several other models I researched always seemed to make it harder than it had to be. The action tips and planning were always my favorite, and I’m not sure how, but they have added even more content and examples. The key to success is in the personal change section, and John Parker Stewart and Daniel J. Stewart have once again found a way to connect on a deeper and more meaningful level. A must-read for leaders wanting more!”
“Thank goodness John Parker Stewart and Daniel J. Stewart have put these updated coaching tips in print! Now I can get rid of all the crib notes I have jotted down from conversations with them as I faced new or rapidly changing leadership challenges. This isn’t another management book. It is a compilation of the right things John and Daniel have observed leaders do over the forty-plus years they have worked with leaders and leadership development. I wouldn’t go into bear country without a gun. I certainly won’t go into the boardroom without LEAD NOW!. Thank you, John and Daniel—truly world-class coaches!”
