Leaders at all levels deepening your talent pool to solve the succession crisis by Ram Charan ( )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,136 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)

The universal laws of business success . . . no matter whether you are selling fruit from a stand or running a Fortune 500 company. Have you ever noticed that the business savvy of the world's best CEOs seems like a kind of street smarts' They sense where the opportunities are and how to take advantage of them. And their companies make money consistently, year after year. How different is it to run a big company than to sell fruit from a cart or run a small shop in a village' In essence, not very, according to Ram Charan. From his childhood in India, where he worked in his family's shoe shop, to his education at Harvard Business School and his daily work advising many of the world's best CEOs, Ram understands business as few can. The best CEOs have a knack for bringing the most complex business down to the fundamentals -- the same fundamentals of the family shoe shop. They have business acumen -- the ability to focus on the basics and make money for the company. What the CEO Wants You to Know captures these insights and explains in clear, simple language how to do what great CEOs do instinctively and persistently: * Understand the basic building blocks of a business and use them to figure out how your company makes money and operates as a total business. * Decide what to do, despite the clutter of day-to-day business and the complexity of the real world. Many people spend more than a hundred thousand dollars on an MBA without learning to pull these pieces of the puzzle together. Many others lack a formal business education and feel shut out from the executive suite. What the CEO Wants You to Know takes the mystery out of business and shows the secrets of success used by business legends like Jack Welch of GE. From the Hardcover edition

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
