About the Book
The Optimized Leader holds an expansive approach to leadership theory, research and application.


Anyone in a leadership role has been confronted with an 'image' of what 'they are supposed to be'. However, we all know that trying to 'fit' into a constructed image is not only a challenge, but it simply isn't sustainable. As such, The Optimized Leader takes an unorthodox approach to leadership theory by developing an alignment based on behavioral characteristics, a leader's personal traits, and a dimensional approach to creating a pre-requisitive to finding the 'fit' that already exists; the leader just has not discovered this 'fit' because of the unrelenting effort to mold and transform.


From here, the book introduces leadership styles and aligns with a leader's best-fitting approach to leadership behaviors. This leads to the opportunity to discover the expanded view of a leadership style, paving the way for individual development.


One thing that no other publication provides is the additional element of follower-match. A leader can be gifted in many, many ways. But, if they do not have the correct followers, their leadership efforts will be compromised in execution of goals, objects, and ultimately, growth and success.
