Overview

The chasm separating managers from leaders is widening, because the responsibilities of leaders, and the skills required to be effective in the role, are growing in number and complexity. But you are ambitious. You want to cross that chasm. And your organization needs you to cross it in order to build its bench of leaders who will lead with empathy and humanity and ground the organization's strategies in a broader sense of mission and purpose.



The Leap to Leader is your trusted playbook for making the biggest jump of your career. Foregrounded by compelling stories of those who've made the leap, this book describes what it takes to become a confident leader. Successful CEOs and other C-suite leaders share their strategies and tactics for building a loyal following, winning promotions without asking for them, developing a legacy by helping others make the leap to leader, and much more.



Written by Adam Bryant, creator and former author of the iconic Corner Office column in the New York Times, now managing director at The ExCo Group, The Leap to Leader draws on his work with hundreds of fast-rising executives and shares the leadership-development frameworks, tools, and approaches that have helped these leaders succeed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Leap to Leader is not just a book; it's a roadmap for professionals seeking inspiration and practical advice to continue to broaden their leadership skills, not only for promotion but also implementing best practices." — PM World Journal

Named a Top Voice in Leadership by LinkedIn

Advance Praise for The Leap to Leader:

"Adam Bryant expertly identifies why leading is completely different from managing. Drawing on intimate conversations with transformational, inspiring leaders, Bryant deftly lays out what every manager should know—and do—to make the leap. An indispensable guide for rising managers and for leaders who aspire to do even more." — Laszlo Bock, cofounder, Humu and Gretel; former Chief Human Resources Officer, Google; New York Times bestselling author, Work Rules!

"Adam Bryant delivers again! In The Leap to Leader, he offers a three-part guide, full of practical tips, insights, and stories for those wishing to graduate from management to leadership. He not only poses the key question—Are you drawn to the fire?—but also describes the mindset shift that all great leaders must master." — Deborah Lee James, 23rd Secretary of the Air Force; author, Aim High

"Leadership is a privilege because it provides an opportunity to make a huge impact by influencing others. And it's a challenge because leaders must learn how to influence others by inspiring them rather than telling them. Bryant captures this theme brilliantly, and if you want to become an impactful leader, this book is for you." — Niren Chaudhary, CEO, Panera Brands

"With his journalistic approach to demystifying leadership, Adam Bryant has created an intensely practical guide filled with compelling insights, memorable stories, and actionable tips from CEOs. It will help anybody who aspires to lead." — Marla Beck, cofounder and former CEO, Bluemercury

"The Leap to Leader has all the signature elements of Adam Bryant's work: an eye for the candid anecdote, an ear for different voices in a world of business where most of us sound the same, and an instinct for what can actually help people become better leaders in every phase of their lives. It has little details and big ideas, and it is the distillation of a lifetime of talking and listening to all sorts of leaders about their deepest hopes and fears." — Glenn Kelman, President and CEO, Redfin

The Leap to Leader…has little details and big ideas, and it is the distillation of a lifetime of talking and listening to all sorts of leaders about their deepest hopes and fears.”

Leadership is a privilege because it provides an opportunity to make a huge impact by influencing others. And it’s a challenge because leaders must learn how to influence others by inspiring them rather than telling them. Bryant captures this theme brilliantly, and if you want to become an impactful leader, this book is for you.”
