    BOOK SYNOPSIS
    As Cobb puts it, “With your leadership skills, you have a distinct  advantage over your peers. You not only can do more and lead more, but you are also in the position to earn more of what the world has to offer in both your professional and personal life. You must first learn how to maximize your Leadership Advantage.” 
    In The Leadership Advantage: Do More. Lead More. Earn More. I explore the concept that leadership is indeed a "verb" and a powerful professional competency that is anchored by what I call Absolute Attributes. I also describe how these attributes innately touch every aspect of our lives, our relationships and our professions. The book's concise discussions and explorations build the premise that by strengthening the primary set of attributes which comprise your unique inner-being, you will gain an advantage over those who think of  leadership as something that others do or merely as a process. This perspective and the strategic use of your primary attributes will become your Leadership Advantage.

  • The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Brian Sobel. He will be joining me on The Author Chat Show to discuss his book, Leading Change From Within: A Road Map to Help Middle Managers Affect Lasting Change
    About the book:
    Change is at the core of human essence. The simplest definition of change is to make different. Human essence isn’t so simple to define. Aristotle referred to it as to ti esti, “the what it is.” As such, change makes different what is.
    Maximizing value in this environment requires leadership—and not yesterday’s authoritarian style of leadership, but leadership at a higher level that connects with both the heart and the mind.
    About the author:
    Brian Strobel strives to be a servant leader. As a middle manager or a consultant to middle management, he's helped organizations find value in change for the past twenty-five years. He's done this within the military, the government and across the private sector. He has graduate degrees in management and in executive leadership and is a certified professional coach (CPC) and manager of quality/ organizational excellence (CMQ/OE). Strobel is committed to helping organizations uncover hidden value by developing middle managers into more effective leaders. He lives with his wife and his favorite dog by a quiet lake in the forest, just north of Grand Rapids.
