THE MANAGERIAL LEADERSHIP JOURNEY
The ongoing tension between Leadership and Management, the focus on People and Tasks, respectively, is a constant balancing act to bring clarity to employees and unleash the organization's potential while relieving the joint pain experienced by companies all over.
This book is written to get the work done. It ensures that the right people are doing the proper work at the right time. It offers managers the tools to give their Direct Reports clarity on their accountability and the authorities they need to meet them. It provides employees a common language, a collective purpose, and a clear line of sight to the organization's strategy.
This book will relieve the pain your organization and its people feel. Ineffective structures, lack of accountability, rework, and confusion are caused by a lack of Managerial Leadership. Through balancing tasks through management and people through leadership, success is the action steps provided in this book.
Bringing your people clarity on their place in realizing the organization's strategy will give their work a common language and a collective purpose and ensure they know what is expected of them. The authorities have to get it done.
When employees have clarity on the accountabilities they are being held to and the authority they have to get the work done, the organization's potential is unleashed. People have a line of sight to the company's strategy and can see their part in it. The result is a collective purpose and unified direction.
This clarity comes from Managerial Leadership, the balancing of Leadership and Management, of People and Tasks. When put into practice, the joint pains of an organization go away, along with confusion, siloes, and rework.
Do you feel disconnected from your people? Are you in too many meetings and feel overwhelmed with emails and requests for clarification from your Direct Reports? This lack of clarity, accountability, and authority can impact your business in so many ways and the way you work might help you realize the strategy, or get in the way of it. Do you even know what the strategy really is, and how to get there? All of this confusion and discord can be traced to a lack of managerial leadership. The art of managing managers has been lost to the need to be seen "being busy". This is made doubly difficult with newly remote workforces and dispersed teams.
Based on experiences from working with many large and small companies, and a 30-year career as a senior military officer, Julian Chapman demonstrates the power of managerial leadership to address and cure the root causes of the pain we feel in organizations and create great places to work. Under Julian's leadership and counsel, companies of all sizes and across many sectors have done the work to bring clarity of purpose, expectation and accountability to their people, and unleashed the potential of their organizations.
