This book is about your effectiveness: your effectiveness at work! In this book, you’:ll learn how to enhance your ability to become more effective tomorrow than you are today, thus increasing your value added to any employer. increasing your income potential, and enhancing your career. Here you’:ll learn how to use the power of the 10 Core Competencies of Effectiveness (Followership, Delegating, Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Problem Solving/Decision Making, Awareness, Motivation, Character, and Credibility) to help you achieve your true career potential. I wrote this guide to focus on effectiveness because your effectiveness is something you directly control and can therefore change. Your effectiveness, or your value added, is the sum of everything you bring to the table (like your knowledge, skills, experience, achievements, attitude, relationships, character, and balance) that has contributed, in some measurable and significant way, to the achievement of your leader’:s goals. Being selected for a leadership or management position is not something you control. Others, like your employer, make those decisions. And, it’:s important to understand how leadership and management relate to your effectiveness. So, how can you become more effective, which is what your employer expects, when it’:s not taught anywhere in academia or learned from your experience? As I see it, you have two choices. You can either do nothing and hope your employer trains you, or you can take the initiative and train yourself. The bad news is that businesses today aren’:t willing to invest in training you until you’:ve been with them for a considerable amount of time and have proven yourself. Where does that leave you? You’:re on your own-good luck! Which of these two choices do you directly control? What are you waiting for? For the past 50+ years, I’:ve been searching for the answer to what makes some people more effective than others and what do effective leaders do that cause their companies to thrive and grow? During that time, I served in the US Military (as a US Army Officer for 23 years) and in Corporate America (as an Executive Coach for 21 years). Here, I was privileged to work with some of America’:s most exceptional men and women who were real game changers, self-starters, and highly effective regardless of their title or position. Over that time, I observed that the most effective people had several things in common. They were able to influence the actions of others to consistently produce excellent results by how they used the 10 Core Competencies of Effectiveness of Followership, Delegating, Planning, Organizing, Communicating, Problem Solving/Decision Making, Awareness, Motivation, Character, and Credibility. This guide is unique because it: •: Offers solutions to real world problems you'll encounter telling what to do, how to do it, and providing the tools needed to make it happen •: Teaches Followership because everyone is a follower to someone and not everyone wants to be, or will be, a Leader •: Reveals the Conditions for Effectiveness needed to influence the actions of others within your company, community, and family •: Teaches the Secrets to mastering the 10 Core Competencies of Effectiveness needed to consistently produce excellent results •: Provides the tactics, techniques, and tools you can easily learn today and use tomorrow to consistently produce excellent results •: Helps you measure and increase your value added to any employer Best of all, this guide is self-paced, easy to use, and gives you everything you want to know, everything your employer expects you to know, plus the top things you didn't realize you needed to know and, much, much, more. So, if you’:re looking for a better way to jump start your career, this guide will be the best investment you could ever make. The one thing I know for certain is that doing nothing is the definition of complacency, which will kill your career.
