Book Details

Anyone can call themselves a leader, can’t they? All they need is a title – a role – a ‘position’, right? I don’t think so. For most people, the authority or power that goes with a title or role disappears when they no longer hold a position on the organisational chart. If they haven’t done a good job, if they haven’t treated people well, no-one will give us the time of day when they pass us in the street – when we have no longer have any power over them. True leaders don’t need the title, ‘Leader’. They don’t even need a role. They often don’t even need a ‘management model’. They just….have it. So, what is it then? Whether we agree with them or not, the truly magnificent leaders around the world have one thing in common – respect. They have flaws, they make mistakes, sometimes big ones, but people follow them regardless – because they have earnt respect and this makes them influential. This book is not about cloning, it’s about being a better you and how through treating others with respect, you will reap the ultimate reward – respect from your team, afterall without others, there is no leader, ever. Using his own experience as an airline pilot, author Chris Smith, will show you how to earn respect and gain valuable wisdomas a leader that others want to follow and aspire to be like. Leadership at 43000 Feet is for anyone who has responsibility for others, or who aspires to have it, and for whom having lifelong influence and contributing magnificently to this experience we call life, is important. …and that’s leadership.
