Set your sights on High–Potential leadership and help your organization thrive
In today s tumultuous and rapidly evolving business environment, High–Potential leaders are in high demand. Do you possess the relationship skills, strategic vision, innovation, and determination needed to thrive as a high–potential leader in your organization? New York Times bestselling author Ram Charan answers that question and helps you hop on the fast–track to leadership success in this insightful guide.
Traditionally, leaders have risen up through the ranks based on their cognitive abilities, analytical skills, thoroughness, and even perfectionist tendencies, but as modern businesses have moved to a more digitally–driven model, the criteria for leaders has markedly changed. The High–Potential Leader explains the modern business climate while highlighting the critical role relationship building, communication style, engagement, and ability to motivate and bring out the best performance in others play in becoming an impactful leader.
