Abstract:

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. [In this volume, the author] provides you with the eight fundamental skills needed for success in the twenty-first century: positioning (and, when necessary, repositioning) your business by zeroing in on the central idea that meets customer needs and makes money; connecting the dots by pinpointing patterns of external change ahead of others; shaping the way people work together by leading the social system of your business; Judging people by getting to the truth of a person; molding high-energy, high-powered, high-ego people into a working team of leaders in which they equal more than the sum of their parts; knowing the destination where you want to take your business by developing goals that balance what the business can become with what it can realistically achieve; setting laser-sharp priorities that become the road map for meeting your goals; dealing creatively and positively with societal pressures that go beyond the economic value creation activities of your business.-Dust jacket.
