Effective Leadership Management: An Integration of Styles, Skills & Character for Today’s CEOs

Front Cover

            Effective Leadership Management is about theory and practice of  integrating styles, skills and character of today's chief executive officers. It is about what a leader or a manager does to bring about staff efficiency and effectiveness. A leader or a manager is effective when he or she brings about the desired results for the organization by using different approaches to the development of personal and interpersonal effectiveness of the staff by daily decision making, staffing, planning, forecasting, nurturing, coaching, directing, organizing, marketing, encouraging and controlling quality.

            Effective Leadership Management emphasizes leadership as the intersection of character, knowledge, skill and desire. Management supervises tasks but leadership deals with  people who supervise tasks. In other words,  management is doing things right, while leadership is doing the right things.

            Effective Leadership Management styles  are achievable by using  mixtures of  different styles as situation  arises. Each leader has to  choose  style(s) that suits his or her personality and that best represents the values of the organization.  In all, a  leader has to be  transparent with all daily dealings,  communicates effectively, be honest with staff members, showing an unbending integrity, at the same time be knowledgeable or  skillful  about the tasks at hand, and be easy to follow. When an employee is encouraged, motivated and positively appraised, his or her performance will be enhanced.

            This book strongly emphasizes theory Z by Dr. Ouchi in which a management or leadership style  focuses on a strong company philosophy, a distinctive corporate culture, long-range staff development, and consensus decision making. When decisions and policies that relate to customers are being made by an organization, it is important to understand  that  others such as customers, community, staff, suppliers and stake holders opinions should be considered. This is called a holistic view approach to decision making.

            It is my hope that readers will find this book useful either as a church leader, school principal or university president, hospital or nursing home administrator,  nurse manager or departmental head,  company owners or CEO that  an effective and efficient  leader or manager cannot lead or manage alone by skills or knowledge, but with styles, character, personality, and by example.
