Amazon Best Seller
Dudley R. Slater and Steven T. Taylor combine the powerful stories of eight prominent leaders with Slater’s own journey of becoming the leader he is and aspires to be in Fusion Leadership – Unleashing the Movement of Monday Morning Enthusiasts.
The wisdom and experience of Slater and other Fusion Leaders illuminate the goals of the Movement—to create a motivated workforce committed to its members and to ignite a common passion that provides individuals with self-fulfillment, and the organization with increased success.
When leaders reward the collective ego at the same level they attend to their selfish egos, their organizations not only make greater progress, but they fulfill the universal human desire to find meaning in work.
Utilizing an engaging narrative format, Fusion Leadership touches on a variety of challenges leaders face every day. Among the topics covered: techniques to provide support to front line workers, modeling appropriate behavior and conversations in meetings, addressing fair pay issues, putting aside ego to effectively lead a team, and demonstrating mutual respect toward lower-level employees and helping them connect their job to the larger vision.
Sharing both his successes and missteps, Slater generates hope and optimism that when leaders practice these concepts, they can not only equip their companies to rise to virtually any challenge and deliver exponential results, but start a movement that will extend well beyond their workplace to society as a whole.
