Are you focused on relationships, values, and people? Are you oriented more toward tradition, money, and resources? Do you appreciate the contributions of others on your team? Do you know how others hear your voice? Knowing your "voice" gives you a powerful advantage as a leader to connect, communicate, and influence every voice you may encounter on your team. 5 Voices is your key to self-discovery and empowerment.

The greatest leaders know themselves--their natural tendencies and patterns of behavior. This enlightening guide gives you a language and framework for identifying your leadership voice, what it sounds like to others, and how to hear the value in what other voices in the group are contributing. The Pioneer, the Connector, the Creative, the Guardian, and the Nurturer are all voices with strengths and weaknesses that can complement each other. Packed with firsthand accounts of professionals using the 5 Voices strategy, this book is full of practical guidance for recognizing and responding to everyone's unique personality, which will prove transformational to your business and your personal life. You'll read firsthand accounts from professionals at all levels in a variety of industries who currently use the 5 Voices strategy in their day-to-day lives.

Mastering the 5 Voices of leadership gives you a distinct advantage over leaders without heightened emotional intelligence. With the simple, infectious vocabulary described inside, you can quickly have an entire organization speaking a language without drama, misunderstanding, and miscommunication. Understanding why certain voices speak and act the way they do gives you omniscient-like clarity to both manage your team and--more importantly--help them thrive. Written for everyday use in the real world, this complete communication tool gives you:

  • An easy-to-use self-assessment for pinpointing who you are and how you contribute in life in the best possible way
  • An in-depth examination of how words can be offensive and defensive "weapons" through tone, volume, and tact (or lack of it)
  • Concrete action steps for guiding effective change--in your own voice or through voices better suited to share the vision

Become the leader you want to be by discovering your voice and the voices of those around you with 5 Voices: How to Communicate Effectively with Everyone You Lead.
