Overview

In our contemporary "era of execution," brilliant strategies and efficient organizations are often the sole measures of success. But do profits and margins alone define effective leaders? Unbalanced Influence tackles this question head-on, drawing on both the science and the practice of executive leadership to explore how today's C-level executives are wrestling with what true leadership is, what it looks like, and how-or if-it affects organizational effectiveness. With nearly unprecedented access to 10 years of research from the Center for Creative Leadership's (CCLr) Leadership-at-the-Peak Program, CCL executive Pete Hammett explores in detail how the personality preferences, personal characteristics, interpersonal interactions, and leadership competencies of senior executive leaders shape the way those leaders view creativity and innovation, decision making, power and influence, values and ethics, and work-life balance. A wealth of data includes results from such pioneering tools as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicatorr (MBTIr) and FIRO-Br instruments, CCL's Executive Dimensions assessment, and the Campbell Leadership Index(CLIr) and Campbell Organizational Survey(COST) tools. Rich insights from the real-life experiences of CCL program participants offer valuable life lessons for senior- and mid-level executives as they journey to define what is-and is not-effective executive leadership.
