Everyday Leadership offers strategies to improve leadership skills, improve results, and gain greater satisfaction in these hectic times. It speaks to the everyday leader, whether that person is a CEO, a principal, a pastor, or a mom or dad. Daniel Mulhern, advisor to Fortune 500 companies, acclaimed speaker, and the husband of Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, immediately sets a warm and personal tone as he recalls his wife's acceptance speech for the nomination of Michigan attorney general. Instead of getting to hear the nominee's address, Mulhern finds himself changing their one-year-old son's diaper in a bathroom of the conference center. In this revealing moment Mulhern finds an instructive mix of humor, frustration, and enlightenment. It was, he says, a chance to learn about the ""unusual three-way intersection where leading, serving, and being human all meet. This book is about that intersection in the lives of human leaders."" ""Everyday Leadership"" brings the art of management down to earth, presenting stories that illuminate some of the best ideas about real human leadership. It offers practical steps to achieve the goal of leading well in our lives through creating a vision, communicating that vision, and living it.
