Summary, etc.:
"Diversity is the hallmark of the American economy, and there's one thing all these businesses have in common: They all have leaders. And leading across generations is the number one challenge that everyone faces. For the reader of this book: Leadership starts with your story. Your ability to communicate is the key to your effectiveness. Your salary. Your relationships. We are put on this earth to create. To create impact. Results. Legacies. Value. And perhaps most importantly: to create relationships that matter. Leaders have ideas; ideas that need to be heard. We live in an era of news and fake news. Authenticity is the antidote. And it’s the reader’s greatest asset. Leadership Language is about authenticity; getting clear on a message and how to tell it. Leaders know how they can serve, and they find the courage to move forward even in difficult circumstances. By helping others to do the same, leaders create real impact. This book will show the reader how to build the connections that are the foundation of new results. Whether a leader is focused on collaboration, culture, employee retention or operational efficiency, all of these elements begin with persuasive and powerful communication"-- Provided by publisher.
