Ignite! The 4 Essential Rules for Emerging Leaders

Emerging leaders are usually bright, talented, and rising stars in their organizations. The challenge is that most new leaders are promoted, because they were good at what they did in their previous role, without any training and development. As a result they are often out of their element, unprepared, and even scared. And with good reason, because like so many people who have greatness thrust upon them, their handling of the often-rocky transition to manage their former team members will affect not only their future, but that of their company’s as well.

Now Sal Silvester's timely book, Ignite! competently fills this void.  In this how-to business book, Sal, shows the path to igniting the potential of new leaders. He begins with a learning parable that illustrates the pitfalls and possibilities of leadership at every turn. But Ignite! is more than just a story. It incorporates for the first time the People-First Leadership™ model that gives new leaders all the tools they need to elevate their effectiveness. By highlighting common errors that new managers make, Sal accelerates the transition to competent leadership and showcases the characteristics successful leaders must bring to the workplace.

Ignite! is Sal's clever and actionable contribution towards smoothing the path to effective and seasoned leadership that enables leaders to ignite their potential and the potential of the people around them.
