In her first book since leaving office as mayor of the City of Tampa, Iorio shares her inside perspective to help readers hone the skills required of today's leaders. The book provides a straightforward approach that imparts practical insight, the wisdom that comes from hands-on experience, and pragmatic methods to improve any leader's ability to influence and communicate as well as galvanize his or her career. Iorio's candid stories, drawn from her own experience in government, business, and nonprofit organizations, as well as the experience of others, reveal real-world solutions. The lessons she draws are essential for managers and leaders at all levels who want to accelerate their results and advance their careers. Straightforward is not about theory; it focuses on actionable ways to become a stronger, more effective leader.
