"Exceptionally well written and thoroughly 'reader friendly' in organization and presentation, From the Ground Up: Stories and Lessons from Architects and Engineers Who Learned to Be Leaders will have a very special and relevant appeal to anyone engaged in Business Mentoring & Coaching." -Midwest Book Review

What does it mean to be a successful leader in your industry?

You're one of the firm's go-to people for fixing problems and making clients happy. But you question if you want to take on the tough work of being a leader at the same time as being a doer: the heavier workload, managing performance of other people, the longer hours and stress. Do you really want to take the more challenging path to make a difference in your life and the firm?

Based on twenty-five years of successfully coaching emerging leaders, Leo MacLeod has developed a simple-to-follow program to help you get there-the place where you are respected as a professional, influence others to do their best work, and maintain sanity. You'll learn how to:

  • Organize your day for success
  • Distinguish between important tasks and urgent tasks
  • Manage emails and meeting so they don't take over your day
  • Delegate tasks and manage interruptions
  • Negotiate new demands on your time
  • Mentor your team so they don't feel overmanaged
  • Advocate for what's important to you at the office and in your life

Full of lessons learned and stories from those who have come before you, From the Ground Up is your guidebook to stepping into your new role without leaving yourself behind.
