Acworth, GA, January 18, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Tune in to insightful and unrivaled interviews with authors of leading business books on the StrategyDriven Podcast. Unlike typical author interviews, Nathan Ives, MBA, PMP goes beyond the written word directly to the day-to-day application of principles readers can immediately implement in their businesses. Find out how John Maxwell, author of The 5 Levels of Leadership, responds to questions Nathan asks about the five levels of leadership and why there seems to be a growing shortage of effective leaders. This podcast is now available at www.StrategyDriven.com. Listen to learn about characteristics of the five leadership levels and how individuals progressively develop through each phase.
“Leadership is influence,” asserts John Maxwell. “If people can increase their influence with others, they can lead more effectively.” Informative, sensible, and empowering, The 5 Levels of Leadership provides the insights and tools every individual needs to further develop his or her leadership skills.
Nathan only selects titles that meet a stringent set of StrategyDriven requirements. First, the title must be aligned with the StrategyDriven mission of delivering best practice solutions to small- and medium-sized businesses, including strategic planning, decision-making, leadership, management, and organizational performance. Secondly, the authors must be highly respected in their field of study.
StrategyDriven author interviews are uniquely different than the average book review. The primary difference, these podcasts are not simply book reviews or summaries. Nathan reads each book prior to the interview and questions the author for a deeper understanding of the important strategies discussed in the book and probes for examples of real-world implementation of those strategies. As a result, listeners get more information, including, author advice not contained within the book; offering additional value listeners can incorporate into their business model. Additionally, StrategyDriven interview articles contain quick links to supplementary materials provided by the author.
