Moxie for Managers
People are hungry to make a difference and achieve but they are hardwired to hold themselves back and sabotage success. When innovation, progress, and execution matter, your job as a leader in the middle is to help people get out of their own way.
Get ready to discover the moxie mindset formula and how you can influence it through your day-to-day interactions with people. By understanding the behavioral influences that intrinsically impact people every day, you can herald an approach to work that echoes Jack Welch’s and Anne Mulchaey. Get ready to explore the art and science behind people successes (and failures) that will catapult you into moxie manager status and leave mediocrity behind forever.
Doing extraordinary things is not limited to the executive suite. But somewhere between executives and contributors, the halls are bursting with complacency and mediocrity. Corporate America is starved for moxie in their managers. The time for middle leadership to shine is now!
Practical and inspiring, Moxie for Managers made me appreciate even more the value that influence has in leading effectively. It proves that anyone at any level of an organization can exert influence and effect change.With this book as a guide there are no more excuses for being stuck in relationships with others; there are only opportunities to bring out the full potential in people.

Moxie for Managers changed me. Before learning about the principles that influence people, I was relying on congeniality and a positive attitude to motivate others. Now I know the secret to being an effective leader and I’m leveraging it every day. Ann’s work is like nothing I have ever learned in formal or informal training. It has impacted my ability to lead and be followed not only at the office but in my personal life as well.

The mentoring guru, Ann Tardy has created a map for those who are ready to leave management behind and become inspirational leaders! Moxie for Managers is the distillation of years of experience and observation by a thought leader with a keen mind and clear focus. As one who has benefitted greatly from Ann Tardy’s guidance, I highly recommend Moxie for Managers to those who want to do it better, whatever “it” is!

Moxie for Managers is not just a fantastic read about how people successfully deal with other people. It is also a handbook for how to exert influence over yourself. The bottom line, when we get out of our own way and get out of other people’s way, magic happens.
