Overview

Extraordinary Leadership

While top-level leaders may be exceptionally gifted and successful, they often have gaps in their skills in such vital areas as interpersonal relationships, adapting to rapid change and complexity, partnering and sharing responsibility and accounta-bility, and inspiring and motivating others.

From the acclaimed Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) comes an essential resource that explores the subtle yet powerful gaps that separate successful top-level leaders from extraordinary ones. Extraordinary Leadership is filled with proven tools, frameworks, and processes that can guide good leaders to become truly exceptional.

Extraordinary Leadership contains a rich collection of wisdom, experience, and insight on a variety of topics relevant to senior leaders such as authenticity, credibility, emotional competence, social intelligence, developmental relationships, growth through connection, ability to learn, life-stage development, and overdone and fatal flaws. Throughout the book, a host of leadership experts such as Jay Conger, David Dotlich, Peter Cairo, Lisa Lahey, Morgan McCall, and Frances Hesselbein outline the four main lenses for examining leadership gaps—the gap within, the gap between, the gap in the system, and the gap at the institutional level—and providemultiple strategies for enhancing the leader's learning journey.

Extraordinary Leadership offers senior leaders a key to learning to lead with confidence and capability in our complex contemporary world.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
