The Leader You Don’t Want to Be
by Mary T. O’ Sullivan

We’ve all encountered “bad bosses” or “tyrannical leaders” who use old school methods to achieve mediocre results. They also create stress and anxiety—all of which impacts the company’s bottom line.

Most of these leaders are blind to the fact that they’re the problem.

What do you do in this situation?

In The Leader You Don’t Want to Be, you’ll learn to be the kind of leader who:

  • Genuinely values each employee’s contribution to the bottom line
  • Recognizes that the next revolutionary idea could be sitting inside unmotivated and unsupported employees
  • Sees employees as real people with thoughts and emotions
  • Respects employees’ ability and desire to contribute to new and exciting ideas and solutions

Transform your leadership style from “command and control” to “transformative visionary.”

Advance Praise

“I think the analogy between seat belts and face masks is powerful. It clearly shows the failure of leadership during the pandemic”.

Steven Smith, Author & Teacher

“I dropped what I was doing and flew through this [book]; I was very excited to see what you had written! You should be so proud of yourself for making this happen.”

Kate Rollins, Director, Florida Operations (Consultant) at Pugh Associates, LLC

“I’m loving your book – it’s a good read…. you did really great with the leadership analysis- the over achievers- the pandemic and female leaders…… it’s very intriguing and eye-opening (realistic)…. nice job…. It’s a really good read and transitions so effortlessly.”

Tracey McMillian-Booker, Manager of Human Resources at Norsk Hydro

“I had nightmares about my old bosses after I read this book”.

Mary Francey, RDH, Retired

“Your take on the pandemic, compared with wearing seat belts and smoking is spot on. You can see the difference in public perception when the message is clear and the leaders are on board. You rarely see people smoke in movies and television shows now. Furthermore, it looks awkward seeing older movies and TV shows of the past that featured those behaviors. The mask/no mask controversy shows exactly what happens when the message is muddled at the top Executive levels. It can also lead to them being separated from their perch, which it did in this case.”

Mark Berger, Public and Media Relations Professional

“The book dispels the perception that anyone who believes leadership is… inherent…[with] their title, … is incorrect. Leadership has to do with embracing change, integrity, leading by example, and forming relationships. This book depicts the poor qualities of a leader and how to understand those attributes as they…relate to the workplace”.

Dorothy Mattiello, Vice President of Human Resources
