(R)evolution: One Man’s Journey to Conquering Leadership Challenges offers insightful and practical advice to executives faced with the daily challenge of identifying, motivating and retaining talented employees. By taking the reader through an actual case study, Anna Conrad—a highly experienced executive coach—illustrates how even the most senior leaders can enhance their effectiveness and their “professional brand” by gaining a deeper understanding of the impact of their leadership style and behaviors.
Many of us will recognize a “Tom” within our organizations, and perhaps, within ourselves. Conrad’s book offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the coaching process, which when applied effectively with a motivated (even if resistant) leader, can convert even a skeptic into the type of leader with whom we all hope to work.
I have seen leaders undergo many (r)evolutions in my thirty-plus years an executive coach. In this engaging story, Anna Conrad shows how a relationship with a coach transforms one man from a results-driven “bully” to a thoughtful leader who puts other people first.
