More About The Ordinary Leader by Randy Grieser
 
 
 
Overview
An ordinary leader is someone who leads a small organization or team that is doing great things. They manage the majority of the world's workforce, but they don't lead large corporations or big government agencies. Ordinary leaders are rarely written about in books or quoted in magazines. They are, however, important. Maybe not globally, but in their own realm of influence, their leadership makes a difference. The term "ordinary" is also used to highlight the belief that no one ever arrives as a leader. In fact, if someone thinks of themselves as extraordinary, they will not be a very effective leader. Author Randy Grieser presents 10 key insights for building and leading a thriving organization. These are the principles he identifies as instrumental to success as a leader. Writing for leaders everywhere, he inspires, motivates, and explains how to make each insight a reality in your organization. Become a more passionate, productive, and visionary leader by exploring and embracing these 10 insights:

​Motivation and Employee Engagement: Organizations flourish when employees go beyond what is expected of them.

Passion: A passionate, inspired workforce begins with the leader.

Vision: Visionary leaders energize and inspire people to work towards a future goal.

Self-Awareness: Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is vital for leading any organization.

Talent and Team Selection: The right employees must, first and foremost, fit the workplace culture.

Organizational Health: Employees are most engaged when leaders are committed to the emotional well-being of everyone.

Productivity: Focusing on how and what things get done increases efficiency.

Creativity and Innovation: Building processes for innovation puts creativity to work.

Delegation: As you free up your time, you will also increase employee engagement.

Self-Improvement: Personal development makes all the other principles easier to achieve.

Also included are the perspectives of 10 ordinary leaders from a range of professions, survey feedback from over 1,700 leaders and employees, and a resource section that provides detailed guidance and examples for putting these ideas into action.
