Every employee is different, but unfortunately many leaders use a one-size-fits-all approach to leading. In doing so, these otherwise well-intentioned leaders are working harder than they should while not getting all they could out of their teams.

Lead Inside the Box gives leaders a way to get the best out of their teams by focusing their energy where it will make the biggest difference. It teaches leaders how to:

  • Figure out where they are currently investing their time and energy across their teams
  • Identify the unique leadership needs of each team member
  • Make smarter decisions about how and where to invest their time and energy to get the best results out of everyone

    Through simple frameworks brought to life with stories from the trenches, leaders will be able to see their own teams–and themselves–from a new perspective. Paradoxically these methods will enable leaders to improve their team’s performance exponentially while expending half the effort.
