Bankable Leadership

People or results?
You don't have to choose!

You probably already know how to build a budget, negotiate a deal, read a financial statement, and build a capital expenditure case. But does that make you a good leader? You may be a top performer in sales, but do you know how to create a high-performing sales team and get the most out of them?

If you're like many leaders, these questions might make you feel anxious, or maybe slightly panicked. Why? Because most organizations spend a lot of time and money on job-related training but invest precious little in teaching people to lead.

Let's get more specific.

Do any of the following challenges sound familiar to you as a leader?

Why can’t my employees just do what I tell them? Why do I have to have so many conversations with them just to get the work done?

Whenever I walk into the room all conversation halts, are they talking about me behind my back? Have I become Michael Scott from The Office?

Are my employees getting complacent? Are they perfectly happy with the status quo? And if I recognize them for their work, what will I do if they start to act entitled?

Why do I feel so uncomfortable when I have to make difficult decisions or hold people accountable? Why is it so hard for me to be the bad guy when I need to?

As a leader, you've likely felt this fundamental tension—the tension between focusing on people and driving results. Even though research tells us that effective leaders balance people and results, this complicated balancing act is easier said than done. In the quest to create happy employees and drive bottom-line results, most leaders feel more comfortable doing one than the other—choosing either a “Cool Parent” or “Trail of Dead Bodies” approach. And whether they know it or not, this imbalance drastically limits their success.

In Bankable Leadership, organizational psychologist Dr. Tasha Eurich solves this dilemma and reveals how to make leadership exhilarating, fun, and fulfilling. Built on decades of research and the transformation of real leaders, her fresh, practical model can help anyone become bankable—producing results while fostering a healthy work environment that ensures sustainable success.

“Creating leaders who are great with people AND deliver results is the business equivalent of making a dessert that tastes amazing and yet has only 15 calories. In this book Tasha Eurich shows you how to do both simultaneously. If she were a chef, she'd be starring on the Food Network.”
