In today’s fast-paced, competitive business environment ... achieving long-term success is more challenging than ever. Organizations must identify, nurture and maximize their most valuable assets - their hidden leaders.
Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) January 29, 2015
On Feb. 3, 2015, "The Hidden Leader – Discover and Develop Greatness within Your Company," a new book by Scott K. Edinger, a nationally-recognized expert in helping cross-industry Fortune 500 organizations and leaders generate dramatic, sustainable results, and by professional writer Laurie Sain will be available to the public.
Published by AMACOM (American Management Association), "The Hidden Leader" asks the important question, “Can you spot the hidden leaders in your company?” Drawing on Edinger’s extensive consulting experience at his agency Edinger Consulting Group, the book delivers actionable advice to help discover overlooked potential leaders, who are crucial to long-term success.
The book’s advice comes at an integral time given the looming talent crisis the global business community is facing. An Oxford Economics survey found that two-thirds of businesses across the globe have not been able to develop a workforce capable of meeting future business objectives.
“In today’s fast-paced, competitive business environment where employees tend to stay at each job less than five years, achieving long-term success is more challenging than ever. Organizations must identify, nurture and maximize their most valuable assets – their hidden leaders,” said Edinger, who is also coauthor of The Inspiring Leader and a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review and Forbes. “Hidden leaders are critical for taking leadership to the next level in any company. They provide a strong competitive edge and are a great source of strategic advantage for long-term business growth.”
To help managers spot, cultivate, and keep overlooked gems within their own company, “The Hidden Leader” delves into the unique dynamics of hidden leadership. According to the book’s coauthors, hidden leaders are distinguished by four key facets of character and behavior:
· Integrity, demonstrated consistently, even in difficult situations.
· A priority on leading through trusting relationships.
· Focusing on achieving results rather than completing tasks.
· Remaining highly customer purposed.
Illustrated by real-world examples of hidden leaders and their impact, the lessons throughout the book show organizations how to identify unsung heroes, how to provide those individuals with the recognition they deserve and ultimately, take these employees to their highest potential. The lessons are supported by instant online access to interactive exercises and leadership assessments through scannable QR codes.
Edinger, whose article "Making Yourself Indispensable" is considered “a classic in the making” by Harvard Business Review, has long impressed business experts with his unique ability to communicate actionable advice.
· New York Times bestselling author Tom Peters calls “The Hidden Leader” “a must read.”
· Jack Orville, president and CEO of Cleveland Heartlab, advises, “If you are interested in creating a culture where leadership flourishes in every part of your business, read this book.”
