The first thing that grabbed my attention was the idea that leadership is an everyday exercise in influence. It’s not just about being in charge or having authority over others. Influencing people starts with understanding them and then making it so they want to do what you need them to do.

In this day and age, we are all leaders whether we like it or not because our actions affect those around us (even if we’re not aware of how). This means that when someone needs help, there is no excuse for sitting back on your heels waiting for someone else to take care of it–everyone has the power within themselves to make a difference regardless of their title, position, or authority.

Who Should Read This Book?

This ebook: Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership is for and about people who do not have titles, like supervisor, manager, executive, chief, head, director, captain, boss, and the like, or some formal authority over other people. It’s intended for front-line workers, new hires, individual contributors, salespeople, analysts, researchers, consultants, professionals, community activists, volunteers, project leads, scientists, engineers, administrators, artists, athletes, attorneys, programmers, coaches, teachers, parents, and all the others who lead without the benefit of hierarchical position or rank. The book aims to help people—no matter their role—strengthen their capacity to make extraordinary things happen.

This Everyday People, Extraordinary Leadership ebook is written to uplift your spirits. This ebook will show you how you can be effective at leading without any formal authority. Leadership matters from wherever you do it. They have learned from their research— which is discussed in each chapter—that people who aren’t managers or executives are far more capable of developing themselves as leaders and exercising leadership than tradition or myth has ever assumed possible.
