13 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Corporate America's leading consultant explains how top companies solve the problem of leadership succession. A serious crisis looms in American management today. More and more CEOs are failing; there remains an acute shortage of capable replacements. The true dilemma in leadership is the stagnant state of corporate leadership development. Because companies fail to hone their unit managers' leadership abilities, they are never able to fill their succession pipelines. With unit managers stagnating, companies have difficulty executing at every level, compounding the crisis. In this book, bestselling author Ram Charan shows how top companies approach leadership development as a core competency, recognizing that an adaptable leadership pool is a competitive advantage, and focusing their attention on bringing out the best in the leaders they have. Charan reveals exactly what's wrong with corporate leadership development and tells how to make it right. He explains the concept of a leadership "gene pool" and shows how companies can discover just what "DNA" they need to succeed. He also details how to uncover the hidden leaders in a company, when and where to bring in fresh talent, how to coach, measure, and reward leadership, and much more. For CEOs, directors, and anyone involved in leadership development, "Leaders at All Levels" will be an eye-opening guide on how to get succession right. Ram Charan (Dallas, TX) is coauthor (with Larry Bossidy) of the bestselling "Execution" (ISBN: 0-7126-2598-4) and a highly sought-after advisor to Fortune 500 companies such as GE, DuPont, Bank of America, and Colgate-Palmolive. He has taught at both the Harvard Business School and the Kellogg School of Northwestern University. He is the author of "The Leadership Pipeline" (ISBN: 0-7879-5172-2)

What the CEO wants you to know : how your company really works by Ram Charan( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ram Charan learned about business from his family's shoe shop in India before attending Harvard Business School and going on to advise senior executives in companies large and small. His experiences taught him that universal laws apply "whether you sell fruit from a stand or are running a Fortune 500 company," and that the business acumen that comes from understanding these basics can be applied throughout any operation. What the CEO Wants You to Know is Charan's primer on this point, which he illustrates with explanations filtered through the eyes of street venders and other small shopkeepers. One, for example, involves a woman in Managua, Nicaragua, who sells clothing from a small cart and beats the oppressive interest rates on her loans and the puny profit margins on her goods with a skillfully selected inventory that is quickly and repeatedly turned over. Whether it's a corner merchant or a giant manufacturing concern, Charan notes, "the faster the velocity, the higher the return." Relating such thinking to cash generation, customer satisfaction, and other essentials, he describes the universal principles that help all companies make money. "What your CEO wants you to know is how these fundamentals of business work in your company," he writes before embarking on a very lucid explanation that can be quickly absorbed and put into practice

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The new grand theory of leadership by Ram Charan ...The breakthrough audiobook that links know-how - the skills of people who know what they are doing - with the personal and psychological traits of the successful leader. How often have you heard someone with a commanding presence deliver a bold vision that turned out to be nothing more than rhetoric and hot air? All too often we mistake the appearance of leadership for the real deal. Without a doubt, intelligence, vision, and the ability to communicate are important. But something big is missing: the know-how of running a business - the capacity to take it in the right direction, do the right things, make the right decisions, deliver results, and leave the people and the business better off than they were before. For well over four decades, Ram Charan has been learning in the most visceral way the underlying reasons why leaders succeed and fail. As one of the most influential advisers to top management teams of leading companies around the world, he has had a front-row seat to observe the cause and effect of leadership practices and behaviors

Boards that lead : when to take charge, when to partner, and when to stay out of the way by Ram Charan( Book )
7 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A Call to Leadership. The role of the corporate board has changed. Today's smartest CEOs have used this to their benefit. But increased board control and involvement also has its downsides. This book, from three leading experts in the field, serves as a guide to help take advantage of board oversight while avoiding the pitfalls. Boardroom veterans Ram Charan, Dennis Carey, and Michael Useem have this to say to today's leaders: Chief executives must run the corporation, but directors must also lead the corporation on the most crucial issues. Monitoring and governance matters, but the time has come to rebalance the responsibilities of the board. Directors need to know when to take charge, when to partner, and when to get out of the way. Charan, Carey, and Useem describe this emerging trend and argue that its overall impact on business performance will be positive. They offer a new roadmap both to CEOs and directors so that senior executives can better balance board oversight with their day-to-day operations of the firm, and directors have a better understanding of when to lead, when to partner, and when to stay out of the way. Based on work with and study of board leaders and chief executives of Fortune 500 firms across the globe, Boards that Lead is that new roadmap, showing what this new partnership model of leadership looks like-and how to make it work.
