Everyone is looking for leaders who are competent and honest, but they're hard to find. The United States is experiencing a leadership crisis. What's more, most leadership guides simply recycle old ideas. It's time to return to true, value-based leadership that can only be learned through a deep examination of the values and traits of a leader-a person who should inspire courage, confidence, integrity, determination and a commitment to excellence. Lloyd J. Edwards Jr., a retired police lieutenant and bureau commander from Huntington Beach, California, provides deep insights on leadership. This guidebook explores how leaders manage people and companies; break through barriers that prevent others from achieving success; and communicate organizational ethics. Explore the interconnections of leadership values and traits in an enjoyable, exciting and understandable format. Learn timeless concepts that anyone can apply to become a leader in business, in a family, and elsewhere. Leaders combine values with skills such as the ability to delegate, teach, inspire, manage time, and communicate vision. It is this combination of the art of leadership and the science of management that produces the quality leader who is capable of inspiring followers.
