I want readers to start challenging the way they manage their people and for people to start demanding a new way to be managed.
PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
As the head of global sales and marketing for a medical device company, author Neill Wallace could have easily been described as an unconventional leader. Now he’s taking ownership of the title and showing readers how being unconventional can be a pathway to companywide success in his new guide “An Unconventional Leader” (published by Archway Publishing).
Wallace defines unconventional leaders as those who believe they don’t fit the traditional mold and don’t mind upsetting the status quo. He asserts that being unconventional increases employee engagement and morale, ultimately leading to greater organizational success.
With “An Unconventional Leader,” readers will learn to:
- Determine the type of leader they want to be.
- Feel empowered to make positive changes.
- Find the best employees and motivate them to achieve the greatest heights.
- Increase employee investment in the company by encouraging them to contribute more.
The book details the success of other unconventional leaders, such as Antarctic explorers Roald Amundsen and Ernest Shackleton, who have heavily influenced Wallace’s decision-making process. Wallace also includes anecdotes from his career to further illustrate his points.
“After reading this book,” Wallace says, “I want readers to start challenging the way they manage their people and for people to start demanding a new way to be managed.”
