How to Improve Your Leadership and Management Skills – Effective Strategies for Business Managers


This book features effective strategies and clever techniques to help you improve your leadership and management skills. It points out that you must be a leader that people follow, keep informed, make timely decisions and take effective action. In effect you must control the activities of your organization rather than being controlled by them.

Here’s what’s in the book:

* How to lead and manage people; powerful tips and strategies to motivate and inspire your people to bring out the best in them. Be the boss people want to give 200 percent for.

* How to Make a Good First Impression

* How to Motivate Your Employees in the Workplace

* How to Manage Change Effectively

* How to Deal With Difficult Employees

* Effective Business Negotiation Techniques

* How To Set and Achieve Goals

* Effective Delegating Strategies

* How To Ensure the Profitability of Your Business

* How to conduct successful meetings

* How to effetely manage your time and get organized

* How to improve your planning skills

*. How to better manage yourself

* All these and much much more.

My name is Meir Liraz and I’m the author of this book. According to Dun & Bradstreet, 90% of all business failures analyzed can be traced to poor management.

This is backed up by my own experience. In my 31 years as a business coach and consultant to managers, I’ve seen practically dozens of managers fail and lose their job — not because they weren’t talented or smart enough — but because they were trying to re-invent the wheel rather than rely on proven, tested methods that work. And that is where this book can help, it will teach you how to avoid the common traps and mistakes and do everything right the first time.

Self Discipline: How I Went from Lazy to Productive by Changing from Within: Master Self And Time Management Skills And Become More Laser Sharp Focused Than Ever Before!


How I Finally Figured Out How To Stay Disciplined Once And For All. Master Time and Self Management for Life!

Look, if you’re viewing this book, there’s one thing that I know about you. You have a goal, maybe multiple goals. There’s something that you really, really want to achieve. This goal may by relatively small, or a gigantic, crazy goal in which you have no idea how to achieve. Either way, you’re looking for a book on self discipline because you know that this vitally important skill is the one thing that will prevent you from achieving this goal and pretty much anything else.

I write this because for the last 5 years, I knew this as well. I’ve always wanted to do big, crazy things with my life, and it didn’t take me long to realize that self discipline was the only thing that was stopping me. I would set a goal, work very hard on it at first- and then fall off track. I failed so many times and really wanted to figure this self discipline thing. I looked at the greats of the world- Steve Jobs, Michael Phelps, LeBron James, and just marveled at their unbelievable, unstoppable work ethic and discipline.

For 5 years I tried to figure out how they did it. What was their secret? What drove them to work so hard every single day? I tried every self-help strategy out there- visualization, vision boards, affirmations, afformations, incantations, accountability, straight-up willpower, meditation, morning rituals, scheduling, self-hypnosis, banning YouTube from my computer network, staying in the present moment- you name it.

None of them worked. Any of them. And for a lot of people, they are in the same shoes that I was in for five years. They can’t figure out why they just can’t get themselves to stay disciplined. And now? Me? I’m finally that disciplined person I’ve always wanted to be. I’m at the gym every day. I practice my craft as a classical cellist more every day. I just wrote a freaking book. I’m consistent, and almost never fall off track. I’m the person that I dreamed to be for five years.

And let me give you a hint: It’s not a strategy that made the difference for me. What finally allowed me to change and be disciplined, once and for all, was to change from within as a person. That’s what we’ll talk about in this book. Yes, I will talk about powerful strategies, even some of the ones I listed above, but this book resolves around the fundamental principle that you must change as a human being at a personal level.

I wrote this book because I know there are people out there struggling with what I struggled with for 5 years- and I don’t want these people to have to spend 5 years trying to figure this thing out like I did. I want people to learn from my mistakes, and learn how I went from lazy to super productive.

Let me give you an overview of what you’ll find in this book

  • The importance of active vs passive learning
  • The key to all permanent change
  • The 5 essential habits of disciplined people
  • What the world’s most successful people do to stay disciplined
  • How to set incredible goals
  • The importance of self identity
  • Why you must engrain your goals inside yourself every single day
  • Much, much more!

For a limited amount of time, I’m going to be offering this book for only $0.99.This book is regularly priced at $4.99, but I want as many people as possible to learn the truth about self discipline. So if you are tired of failing time and time again to stay disciplined- I highly, highly encourage you to download and, more importantly, take action on what you will learn in this book- a book I wish I had five years ago. Best of luck.

To your success,
Isaac Berglind

Power: The Leadership Mantra: How to Develop an Effective Leadership and Management Skills


“You did good, kid! From next time, say something like Doctor or Engineer or something. Business is not a right thing to say.”… 

This was where my journey started. 

Join me as I tell you my story of how I broke the shackles of society and my own mind and created an empire out of nothing except my own will and hard work. 

“POWER: The Leadership Mantra” is the essence of everything I have learned on my journey so far. Everything that I have learned about business and how to lead people, I have learned on my own through trial and error. This book is my attempt of sharing my insights and experiences with the people so they don’t have to reinvent the wheel. 

In the book, I talk about the 5 key components or Mantras for Leadership. The ideas can be summarized in a single word, POWER. But I am not talking about the power that you are thinking of. POWER is a combination of 5 different qualities that a leader must possess in order to be successful at his or her job. 

Once you have these five qualities and you hone them to perfection, nothing can stop you from becoming a successful leader, one who inspires his juniors and impresses his bosses. 

As I go along telling you about the qualities and what you can do to cultivate them in yourself, I will share with you my own journey and how I applied these concepts in my own life to succeed at my business. Of course, I did it without really realizing it and from trial and error but now that I look back on my journey I realize how every step I took was in line with what I will be telling you in this book. 

In this Book, I will 

  1. Tell you what does the word POWER truly mean and what are the qualities that a successful leader must have. 
  2. Give you real, actual, usable advice that you can use to cultivate these qualities in yourself 
  3. Take you along on my journey and show you how do those qualities help you on your journey
  4. Give you real world examples of people who followed these rules and how they succeeded. 

So join me as I take you on this journey of how a small town, middle-class boy turned into a successful entrepreneur who is now making a living from teaching leadership and management to second, sometimes third generation entrepreneurs and loving every minute of it.

The Management Skills Builder: Self-Directed Learning Strategies for Career Development


Talent, knowledge, and hard work do not guarantee success in a managerial or professional career. Competent, knowledgeable, and hardworking people often have less impact and achieve less career success than they deserve. Sometimes the missing ingredient for success is a set of fundamental skills, skills that give talent, knowledge, and hard work leverage and visibility.

The body of knowledge to be mastered in a technical or professional education leaves little or no time for the acquisition of skills that cut across disciplinary boundaries. Used in all fields, these generic skills are vital to the careers of many managers and professionals. The manager and professional who can write efficiently and well; who is an effective and willing public speaker; who can interview effectively; who can and does relate effectively with others; who is personally able to use a computer; and who can tap into the burgeoning volume of information with some precision, has greater probability of success than one who cannot or does not. The Management Skills Builder is intended to increase awareness of the need for these skills among intelligent and dedicated professionals and to suggest ideas about how these skills may be acquired, further developed, and honed. Strategies for the development of each skill are provided, along with a resource list that includes recommended books, videos, and other learning aids.
