Overview

An inspirational guide to unleashing and focusing the leadership potential in every employee
According to a 1999 survey of more than 2,100 companies in twenty-three countries, leadership development is among the top three concerns of companies, world-wide. In this inspirational follow-up to her critically acclaimed In Search of Leaders, Hilarie Owen provides CEOs, senior managers, and HR directors with proven strategies for recognizing and overcoming their companies' inherent obstacles to leadership development. She also arms them with a complete action plan for focusing the creative energy unleashed in the process and applying it to solve a host of critical organizational problems. In a fascinating historical overview, Owen traces the evolution of leadership, from the ancient Egyptians to the modern business organization. She assesses current organizational structure and practices in terms of how conducive they are (or, more often, aren't) to leadership development.
Hilarie Owen (Gloucester, UK) works for the Institute of Leadership.
