Description: FOLLOW THE PATH TO GREAT LEADERSHIP This book turns leadership on its head. Most leadership models start by trying to identify what great leaders do. In Follow the Leader, global speaker, consultant and leadership expert Emmanuel Gobillot answers a much more fundamental question for anyone wanting to become a great leader: "what do great followers want?" In this engaging, thoughtful and well-researched book, he identifies the proven pathways to developing the charisma we all seek in the leaders who truly inspire and motivate us. He breaks down the all-important "charisma" into eight critical elements, explaining how each component works and offering practical development steps for each. Getting these steps right will transform good leaders into magnets for great followers, harnessing an unstoppable power for business achievement. ? Discover CHARISMA, the new leadership model that addresses followers? needs ? Be inspired by stories drawn from a breathtaking number of fields from business to politics via wax models and bears! ? Find out which questions really matter, how to answer them, and the eight steps to leadership success Contents: Introduction: the wrong question PART ONE: Emotional logic Chapter 1: Why do we follow? ? If we understand why we follow then we start to understand what value leaders provide. It?s easy to see the attraction of being a leader, but why would anyone want to follow? Why are we so desperate to give up our ability to choose our own course of action? Find out why we are willing to die for a suit, literally! ? Chapter 2: Emotional logic: the follower?s decision-making engine ? By understanding the mechanics of how followers choose their leaders we can work to meet their demands. But are their choices always rational? How can we tackle something that isn?t? And what does the phrase ?the duck is ready to eat? have to do with any of this? ? Chapter 3: Charisma: the one thing that matters ? Ask any follower why they admire a particular leader and chances are charisma will be the answer. Yet few people know how to define it, never mind develop it. The good news is that once you understand emotional logic charisma becomes clear. We can learn a lot about it from the Mona Lisa. She knows something we don?t and that?s why she has that knowing smile. PART TWO: The values dimension Chapter 4: Compassion ? Great leaders don?t just understand others; they seem to have an ability to know exactly how they feel. In this chapter we look at how compassion works. We look at the steps that need to be taken to develop this, as well as the tools that can make it more effective. In our search for models I will divide the world into PowerPoint and Excel people, just to be able to unite it again. ? Chapter 5: Hope ? What we look for our leaders to provide is hope. But what does that mean? How, without having to lie, do you articulate the future when you don?t know what is going to happen? How do you create pictures your potential followers can buy into? Is there anything we can learn from the leaders who are chosen through elections? PART THREE: The character dimension Chapter 6: Asperity ? Potential followers need to know that you will be able to deliver your vision regardless of the situations you find yourself in. Do you have the grit, self-determination and resilience to succeed? Will you stay true to your values when the going gets tough? A few wax models can help us find out. ? Chapter 7: Rhetoric ? Through its rational and emotional aspects, rhetoric speaks directly to emotional logic. But how do you find the right words to engage? How do you ensure your message sticks? How do you build an argument that convinces the heart as well as the head? In search of answers, I will introduce you to the Scot and the American who defined the English language. ?
