When Martin G. Moore was asked to rescue a leading energy corporation from ever-increasing debt and a lack of executive accountability, he faced an uphill battle. Not only had he never before stepped into the role of CEO; he also had no experience in the rapidly evolving energy sector. Relying on the practical leadership principles he had honed throughout his thirty-three-year career, he overhauled the company’s culture, redefined its leadership capability, and increased earnings by a compound annual growth rate of 125 percent.
In No Bullsh!t Leadership, Moore outlines these proven leadership principles in a clear, direct way. He sweeps away the mystical fog surrounding leadership today and lays out the essential steps for success. Moore combines this tangible advice with honest, real-world examples from his own career to provide a no-nonsense look at the skills a true leader possesses.
Moore’s principles for no bullshit leadership focus on:
Creating value by focusing only on the things that matter most
Facing conflict, adversity, and ambiguity with decisiveness and confidence
Setting uncompromising standards for behavior and performance
Selecting and developing great people
Making those people accountable, and empowering them to do their best
Setting simple, value-driven goals and communicating them relentlessly
Though the steps aren’t easy, they are guaranteed, if implemented, to lift your leadership–and your organization–to a higher level. Wherever you are in your career, No Bullsh!t Leadership will help you develop the skills and form the habits needed to become a no bullshit leader.
Martin G. Moore is the former CEO of CS Energy. When he took on this role, the company was saddled with massive debt and debilitating commercial issues. Within five years, he had grown earnings from $17 million to $441 million, a compound annual growth rate of 125 percent. After a thirty-three-year-long career, in which Moore worked his way up from an entry-level position in software development to later becoming a CIO, an SVP, and a Head of Strategy, Moore traded in his corner office for an enriching career as a leadership performance expert at Your CEO Mentor, the business he co-founded with his daughter, Emma Green. He developed Leadership Beyond the Theory, a global training program geared toward sharing his insights and wisdom with the world’s top executives. In conjunction with his book of the same title, Moore also hosts No Bullsh!t Leadership, a weekly leadership podcast that has been downloaded more than one million times.
