Arneson was named one of America's top leadership consultants by Leadership Excellence magazine in 2008. This book enables leaders at all levels to design a complete self-directed leadership development program; Concise, accessible, practical and flexible. Leadership training can be inconsistent in the best of times. In tough economic times it's often one of the first things that even the most progressive companies cut back on. And you can't necessarily depend on finding that mentor you've been looking for either. Now more than ever, if you're going to advance your career you need to lift yourself up by your own bootstraps. But not entirely: Steve Arneson is here to give you a boost. In Bootstrap Leadership Arneson, one of America's top leadership coaches offers a complete blueprint for designing your own personal leadership development program. In fifty brief, to-the-point chapters he provides practical ideas and techniques that have been proven successful in his work with executives at Fortune 500 companies like AOL, PepsiCo and Capital One. Surprisingly, most of these ideas cost nothing to implement, nor do they require any elaborate equipment or infrastructure-they're open to anyone with sufficient initiative, drive and ambition. The chapters are entirely self-contained and can be read in any order and at any pace. You can read one a week and you'll have a comprehensive year-long self-improvement program (with two weeks off for vacation). Or you can choose a chapter that speaks to a particular challenge you're facing at work or one that just seems intriguing. There's a self-assessment at the beginning of the book to suggest specific chapters that fit your developmental needs. No one is going to just hand that next promotion. You have to earn it by developing and demonstrating your leadership skills. And ultimately it's not just about you-true leaders make everyone around them better. Bootstrap Leadership shows you how.
