Leaders learn to use their strengths and overcome their barriers with Move to Greatness: Focusing the Four Essential Energies of a Whole and Balanced Leader. Ginny Whitelaw creates four categories: drivers, collaborators, organizers, and visionaries; she explains that success and failure both originate from the use or misuse of these fundamental patterns and offers suggestions for balancing them correctly.

This book has been a critical piece of my successful executive coaching practice, along with the FEBI assessment that actually measures people's ease with the different 4 patterns of behavior and thought. Just today, I'm buying it for a Senior Legal Counsel in a global firm, who took the FEBI and with whom I will work on executive presence - just the type of coaching issue that can't be approached "just with the mind".
A great read, richly illustrated with stories, exercises and graphics... what a perfect resource for leaders who want to expand how they show up, and for the coaches and mentors who support them.
