Orem, UT (PRWEB) July 13, 2009 -- In their best-selling work The Extraordinary Leader, performance thought leaders John Zenger and Joseph Folkman revealed the 16 key competencies that separate the top 10 percent of leaders from the rest. Since that first book's publication, they have discovered, through an extensive study conducted over four years, that leaders who possess the ability to motivate and inspire outperform all others.

But how do the very best leaders master this skill? Is the ability to inspire even a "skill" that can be learned?

Absolutely, and John Zenger, Joseph Folkman and Scott Edinger have distilled these proven lessons in their latest book, The Inspiring Leader: Unlocking the Secrets of How Extraordinary Leaders Motivate.

"Drs. Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman, along with their colleague Scott Edinger, have taken the study of leadership to a new level," comments Marshall Goldsmith, best-selling author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There. "The Inspiring Leader shares why inspiring leadership matters and what inspiring leadership means to staff members. More important, it goes on to describe how you can become a more inspiring leader."

The Inspiring Leader reveals the authors' newest proprietary research on how top leaders inspire teams to greatness. It discusses the seven behaviors exhibited by the most successful leaders and includes advice on how to implement them. Drawing from statistically significant data and objective empirical evidence, the book illustrates what makes a leader truly inspiring.

Zenger, Folkman and Edinger lay out the strategies and concepts used by the world's greatest leaders to motivate their teams. With this book as your guide, you'll learn how to put those strategies to work in your own business. You'll also find out how to develop effective strategies of your own.
