"Many people think leadership is a higher calling that exclusively resides in managers who practice or follow big compelling leadership philosophies. But what's most important for leadership is principled consistency, because small things done well build trust and respect within a team. Using stories from his time at Apple, Pinterest and Slack, Michael Lopp-VP of Engineering at Slack-presents a series of leadership practices that help you build leadership skills. You'll learn how to create teams that are highly productive, highly respected, and highly trusted." -- Provided by publisher
