Step-by-step, Andersen lays out six key attributes (farsightedness, passion, courage, wisdom, generosity, and trustworthiness) that offer people, at all levels within an organization, the tools to think and behave as fully accepted leaders.
The book is filled with examples from such outstanding organizations as Apple, NBC Universal, Union Square Hospitality Group, and MTV Networks and offers a framework for self-assessment to help focus on each of the six leadership attributes. Andersen identifies the key behaviors that exemplify each of the attributes and provides practical guidelines for building these essential leadership behaviors.
