Achieve Leadership Genius: How You Lead Depends on Who, What, where and when You Lead

Front Cover
Financial Times Press, 2007 - Business & Economics - 315 pages
What does 40 years of research tell us about leadership? How can we use that knowledge to become truly inspirational leaders? In Achieve Leadership Genius, three renowned leadership consultants offer definitive answers to these questions, presenting a detailed framework any manager can use to become dramatically more effective - and any organization can use to nurture tomorrow's leaders. Drawing on the world's most significant studies of leadership and organizational behaviour, the authors illuminate leadership in all five of its contexts: leading oneself, leading individuals one-on-one, leading teams, leading organizations, and leading alliances. But great leadership is situational as well as contextual: it must be flexible enough to handle a wide variety of environments, events, and scenarios.
