Phil Ford and Michael Blisko assist tomorrow’s would-be leaders.

All too often, leaders are thrust into their roles without the opportunity to nurture their skills, making management a learn-as-you-go experience. Leadership experts Phil Ford and Michael Blisko look to assist up-and-coming leaders by providing them a handbook built to identify and cultivate those important skills in “The Root Cause Analysis of a Balance Leader.”

“The Root Cause Analysis of a Balanced Leader” is an educational tool designed to help leaders, supervisors, and trainees to assess their current management techniques and determine the type of leader they’d like to become. The guide sheds light on the “Root Cause Analysis” process, features illustrated method models in a practical manner and navigates readers through the method.

Featuring a presentation format, the manual encourages audiences to become more self-aware and sets leaders on a pathway to success and growth. The approach helps readers move effectively through their discovery process and provides insight into their desired leadership goals, tactics and skills.

“Root cause analysis is not new. Leadership is not new, but to combine the two to discover how to be a better leader is a new direction,” Ford said. “¬¬No one can tell you what kind of leader you ought to be, but there are strong and winning pathways to ensure success. The Root Cause Analysis provides readers with a fresh method of determining the kind of boss you can be.”
