“As a leader, you will face numerous obstacles, negativity, and tests,” says Gordon, author of The Power of Positive Leadership: How and Why Positive Leaders Transform Teams and Organizations and Change the World.
“There will be times when it seems as if everything in the world is conspiring against you, and your vision seems more like a fantasy than a reality. That’s why positive leadership is essential!”
Since writing the The Energy Bus in 2015, Gordon has worked and consulted with leaders who have transformed their companies, organisations, and schools; won national championships; and are currently changing the world. He has also interviewed some of the greatest leaders of our time and researched many positive leaders throughout history to discover their paths to success.
The Power of Positive Leadership shares what Gordon has learned and provides a comprehensive framework on positive leadership filled with proven principles, compelling stories, practical ideas, and practices that will help leaders become more positive.
Gordon points out that great leaders understand that people drive the numbers, not the other way around. To win, you must win with people. And it all begins with your decision to become a positive leader, and the understanding that leadership is not just about what you can do, but what you can inspire, encourage, and empower others to do.
The book will help leaders discover the true drivers of short- and long-term success, learn what leadership is really about and cultivate the habits and outlook of successful leaders. Plus, how to strengthen their people and let the results speak for themselves.
It shows readers the way to lead to build a great culture, unite their organisation in the face of adversity, develop a connected and committed team, and achieve excellence and superior results.
“Positive leadership is not about fake positivity,” says Gordon. “It is the real stuff that makes great leaders great. It can help you become the person you want to be and the leader your people need.”
