If you’ve ever been left in the dust when a co-worker’s leadership skills earned a nice, fat promotion, then an impressive new leadership course called “How to Lead” can turn the tables.

“How to Lead” is offered by Mind Tools and it is an excellent system for transforming yourself into an effective, well-balanced, respected and successful leader.

This course is unique because it lets you learn, at your own pace, what you need to do to become an exceptional leader in your industry. This includes an understanding of your strengths and weaknesses.

The course includes a workbook, “How to Lead: Discover the Leader Within You”, along with five self-assessment worksheets and seven email-based e-classes. The workbook format is a 185-page downloadable Adobe PDF, which took me 5 minutes to download on a 56K modem, so you can begin this course right away.

The workbook is divided into the following eight modules:

* The Meaning of Leadership – teaches essential concepts that form the foundation of effective business leadership

* Get to Know Yourself – includes five insightful self-tests that assist you in knowing yourself so that you can become a balanced and successful leader;

* Get the Right Stuff – shows you how to counter weaknesses, build self-confidence, project a dynamic attitude and leverage your own leadership strengths

* Creating Winning Ideas – step-by-step instructions on how to road-map your clear and compelling vision of how the future should be, such that other people will enthusiastically adopt your vision

* The Power to Rouse – learn how inspire people with your vision, as well as how to motivate them to give their very best

* Getting Things Done – some excellent tips and tricks on how to implement your vision

* Develop Your Team – shows you how to develop your people into highly-motivated and exceptionally effective team players

* Get the Extra Edge – walks you though the transition from good leader to being a great one by demystifying risk taking, networking and cross-cultural leadership

Since the workbook includes a module on self-assessment to determine your strengths and weaknesses, the course also includes five self-assessment sheets in MS Excel format.

If you’ve ever taken a pen-and-paper test as part of a business course, you know how tedious it can be to score such a test. You’re constantly flipping back and forth to check correct answers, marking things right or wrong, and then there’s the math you must do.

Fortunately, the authors of this course foresaw this, and created the self-assessment score sheets in MS Excel format. They download from the workbook in MS Excel format. Each sheet took just under a minute on a 56K modem.

MS Excel automatically scores them and gives you the results. Students without MS Excel can complete the assessments on paper.

The seven email classes are broken up into one course per week for seven weeks. The classes function as guides for the workbook, and they provide coaching and motivation. They are quite thought-provoking.

Busy professionals will find the email courses a valuable source of reinforcement and a handy took with which to transform new ideas into good habits that will make a real, sustained difference in life.

For the money, this course is an exceptional value. In-person leadership courses run into the thousands of dollars, whereas this one costs only $47.

The best part is that you can try this course out at no risk, since it is offered with a “no questions asked” three-month, 100% money-back guarantee.

In summary, this course offers a complete leadership course in a user-friendly format at an excellent price. If you want to lead, “How to Lead” is a must-have.
