What do leaders and executives do to keep improving their performances and maintain momentum? They go back to the basics. Fundamentals are the glue--communicating, listening, questioning, inspiring followers, being accountable, and delegating. These essentials are the change agents for leaders with a desire to succeed.

In Leadership Skills That Inspire Incredible Results Halstead gives readers the same advice, guidance, and techniques he offers his clients. He outlines the skills needed to be an effective leader and provides techniques augmented by real-world examples from companies that include Spotify, Clif Bar & Company, Honeywell, and Eileen Fisher.

  • Hone others' critical thinking through insightful powerful questions
  • Inspire followers
  • Fearlessly delegate with mindful purpose

Readers will see how the development of these skills demonstrates respect for others that will inspire them to tackle goals and produce results previously thought impossible. It shows professionals at all levels how to improve these skills to create greater success for them, their team, and their entire organization.

“Success in a new venture isn't about how much you can do yourself. In my role as mentor and advisor to many founders, I consistently fail in convincing them of the power in wise delegation. I saw this challenge highlighted well in a new book, Leadership Skills that Inspire Incredible Results. Halstead has spent many years coaching and consulting with over 200 organizations, and he's helped me articulate the benefits of delegation--and better understand some of the key barriers.” —Inc.com
