Millions of business professionals aspire to become effective leaders. But for hardworking, growth-oriented top performers who are always looking to improve and for rigorous thinkers who are never quite satisfied with the status quo, the true goal is the lifelong pursuit of excellence.

He found a pattern of uncommon behaviors that set these stellar individuals apart. By following their examples, you will learn how to:

  • Seek guidance―and lead others to new heights
  • Meet the moment―and make the most of every opportunity to excel
  • Create a trusted group of advisors―and become a lifelong learner

Packed with specific actions to take, experiments to run, and tools to analyze what works best for you, this uncompromisingly practical guide will inspire, challenge, support, and empower you to become your very best.
