Identify & refine your leadership style to achieve leadership success!

Do you lead with a highly organized, task-focused style that motivates your team to accomplish deadlines on time? Or do you focus more on the future to inspire your team towards success?

But here’s the better question: why do you have to choose between the two? This traditional binary thinking of declaring yourself either the detailed-oriented Manager or big-picture Visionary in leadership is limiting the growth of your career, team, and company.

Within the wide spectrum between these two archetypes lies the amazing power of a combined leadership style that reaches new heights. Embrace hybrid leadership to become an Indispensable Leader!

In The Indispensable Leader, leadership expert Darby Vannier provides a strategy to harness and develop the best traits of both managerial and visionary leaders to support greatness in your professional and personal life. Filled with practical tools and real-world examples, this guide will help you balance detail-focused accomplishment and big-picture inspiration to create a leadership style that fosters an effective team, an enterprising environment, and an exciting future.

Powerful possibilities emerge in the balance of ideas and action! Get The Indispensable Leader and redefine leadership success for yourself, for the people you lead now, and for anyone you’ll lead in the future.

"Leadership has become a buzz word in our culture with many people writing about it or claiming to have an understanding of it, but Darby actually gets it. Through personal stories as well as connecting us with his many mentors he breaks down the myths behind the visionary and manager and introduces us to a new form of leadership that embraces the qualities of both. This book will prove valuable for anyone in a leadership position but also immensely valuable for entrepreneurs who are deciding on their next steps.
