    Mastering Leadership

    Mastering Leadership

    For most leaders today, complexity is outpacing their personal and collective development. Most leaders are in over their heads, whether they know it or not. Since the most successful organizations over time are the best led, escalating global complexity puts leadership effectiveness at a premium. Mastering Leadership involves developing the effectiveness of leaders—individually and collectively—and turning the leadership into a competitive advantage.

    This timeless, authoritative text takes a systemic approach for developing senior leaders and the leadership system of your organization. It does not recommend quick fixes, but argues that real development requires a strategic, long-term, and integrated approach in order to forge more effective leaders and enhanced business performance. Mastering Leadership presents pathways to bring forth the highest and best use of yourself, your life, and your leadership—helping you more fully and meaningfully deploy all of who you are while achieving a leadership legacy consistent with your highest aspirations.
