Are leaders born, or made? And what's the  single most important quality a real leader should possess? Philosophers and  management theorists have endlessly debated-and just as endlessly written  about-these subjects for centuries. Finally, here's a book that cuts to the  chase. In 68 of the most succinct, no-punches-pulled pages you'll ever read,  acclaimed author-speaker-coach John Baldoni maintains that "leadership  presence" is a form of communication that can be learned, and then  provides the hows and the whys of learning it. He starts by defining what  genuine leadership presence is, and discusses right and wrong ways to  demonstrate leadership taken from real-life examples. Baldoni explains how to  communicate your objectives in ways that encourage people to buy into the  process-even if it includes tough subjects like layoffs, closures, and  terminations. Along the way he adds some provocative comments on the  importance of ethical actions in tough times as well as good-including why  merely thinking good thoughts and voicing good intentions are never enough.
