    Robin Denise Johnson (Author)
Leadership is a relationship - a relationship between those who lead and those who follow. In this handbook, Dr. Robin shares ways you can make that relationship empowering. She discovered through her research that empowerment in practice requires Authority (decision rights appropriate for your role), Competence (skills you need to do the work and learn), and Trust (demonstrated reciprocal respect that acknowledges interdependence and relational risks). This handbook uses the device of a Leadership Trait Questionnaire with sections for each of those three aspects of empowering relationships to help you gain insight into your experience. She shares the practical results from robust research about decision making biases to watch out for when you have authority: she explains the difference between achievement orientation and perfectionism when developing competencies: and she shares three different kinds of trust so you can decide who, when, and how much to trust others in your work context. There's also information about trust in the multicultural context that encourages thoughtful reflection and conversations. The combination of practical research-based suggestions within this interactive handbook makes it a helpful resource. Robin Denise Johnson, is a Harvard trained Ph.D. with a knack for making management research useful for practicing managers. She does executive education work globally with business, non-profit and government clients. She's solar powered. So when she's not traveling-teaching, she lives in sunny southern California.
