Choice. Power. Speed. Today’s leaders continually face these forces. But with too many choices, too much power, and too much speed, leaders often make decisions in a heightened state of emotion (and drama). Hasty decisions are often poor ones and in this climate there is no place to hide. Privacy is a thing of the past; the days of covering up or ignoring a problem are over. In today’s transparent culture, the decision making of leaders is more vulnerable then ever—and it is more critical than ever to get it right. Marlene Chism’s No-Drama Leadership introduces just the model the corporate world needs. Using case studies, checklists, and examples from various levels of hierarchy in leadership and from a variety of industries, Chism introduces the mindset shifts and practical skills needed to develop enlightened leaders, whose decision making flows from a much more grounded and aligned place.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Absolutely brilliant! A must-read for any leader that wants to transform culture in the workplace.”

    Marshall Goldsmith, coauthor of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

  • “The author shows, through in her choice of stories, her great skill in communicating to us how bad leadership looks from a subordinate’s point of view, and her skill in giving us practical advice on how to evolve toward being better at managing the complex relationship that leadership involves.”

    Edgar H. Schein, author of Humble Inquiry: The Gentle Art of Asking instead of Telling

  • “Talk to some managers for any length of time, and you’ll hear them describe a typical day with words like busy, stressed, or even burned out. But when you speak with an enlightened leader, you hear words like aware, aligned, and accountable. How it possible that bosses within in the same organization is can range from feeling like helpless victims to enlightened, engaged leaders? Marlene Chism’s No-Drama Leadership shows leaders how to step out from under the shadow of drama and into enlightenment.”

    Scott Carbonara, a.k.a. the Leadership Therapist, and author of Manager’s Guide to Employee Engagement

  • “Workplace drama compromises morale, jeopardizes productivity, and encourages turnover because star performers simply won’t put up with it. Marlene Chism understands that only leaders can truly stop it and prevent it before it destroys the organization’s culture. Leaders who commit to growing profits and playing a bigger game should read and heed Chism’s advice.”

    Linda D. Henman, author of Challenge the Ordinary
