Personal Character, Leadership Talent, and Management Skill
Simply, this book provides aspiring or experienced leaders with a well-thought-out discussion of personal character, leadership talent, and management skill (e.g., staffing, budgeting, data and measures, strategic planning, and implementing change) in a distinctive way. It presents practiced perspectives, skilled insights, and proficient narratives intended to resonate with every reader. The chosen title is not arbitrary, especially the word “non-negotiables.” While personal character, leadership talent, and management skill – we believe – are necessary for leadership success, each is not sufficient on its own to secure such success.
“In a field full of technical “how to” advice for managers, Marshall’s emphasis of personal character on leadership is a refreshing and needed reminder for business professionals.”
“Leadership Nonnegotiables packs a lot in a small package. Whether you’re new to leadership and looking to get started right, an already competent leader seeking to sharpen your skills, or an old hand who wants a go-to desk reference, this book is a great resource. It’s rare to find anything that so thoughtfully and practically connects the dots between leadership and management.”
“Nonnegotiable leadership is often missing in all levels of organizations/leaders. Taking stock of one’s leadership is of utmost importance for leadership success. This book establishes a course for leadership in the midst of change and reminds the reader/leader about staying the course and investing in the effort to bring mission and purpose back to the organization and to the mission statement.”
“Personal character, leadership talent, and management skills are the three pillars that Dr. Marshall uses to summarize and articulate his wise and applied knowledge on leadership. Years of effective consulting grounds Dr. Marshall’s approach on leadership, resulting in a very practical and useful book where everybody will find something to apply immediately.”
