There are so many theories on Leadership it can get quite exhausting. In fact Leadership theory is wide and so vast you may find yourself throwing your arms up in the air and saying, “I’m just going to do leadership my way”. Well it is confusing. And it causes us to ask more questions, such as: “Is leadership the same as leading?”, “Is managing the same as leadership?”, “What skills are necessary for leadership?”, “Do I have to have a title or position to perform leadership?”, and so many more! This makes the ideas of leadership even more daunting. Can we simplify all this in someway? And the answer is YES! Gary DePaul, PhD joins us on this episode of A New Direction with his latest book “What the Heck is Leadership and Why Should I Care?”
What the Heck is Leadership is really a book about breaking leadership down into some basic fundamental principles that are consistent with successful leadership. Is this an exhaustive list? Of course not, but if one were to practice the 7 principles laid about by Gary DePaul you would be much further than the majority of self-proclaimed people in leadership. What the Heck is Leadership anyway is a perfect example that there are actions that we can all perform to enhance our leadership from whatever position we find ourselves in. While the book is not a long read it is a book that will stop and make you consider if you are truly demonstrating leadership from where you are right now and certainly if you have a “growth mindset” ways for you to change.
