Is your leadership built for scale as you advance in today’s volatile, uncertain, dynamic, and disruptive business environment? Some leaders are capable of rapidly growing the organization while simultaneously transforming it into more agile, innovative, adaptive and engaging workplace. Other leaders, unfortunately, cancel themselves out and seriously limit scale. Which one are you?

This week’s featured book, based on groundbreaking research, shows how senior leaders describe and develop leadership that works and does not, that scales and limits scale. It compares the ripple of growth initiated by effective leaders with the stagnation caused by ineffective ones; and shares effective, proven ways to develop more leaders all around you.
