Based on extensive research, this book challenges accepted 'norms' and establishes the 7 key competencies required for successful leadership today

This challenging book is based on research carried out over seven years with over 2,500 senior managers in ten different companies, in USA and Europe. Michael Williams establishes and explains the 7 key competency clusters that matter most today:

* Goal orientation
* Integrity
* Close engagement with others
* "Helicopter" perception
* Resilient resourcefulness
* Personal "horsepower"
* Resonant communications

He also shows how much talent lies untapped in organisations and proposes methods of mobilising all this potential. He demonstrates how, for ultimate success, the key competencies need to be linked closely to:

* Personal consistency
* Discipline and integrity
* Intolerance of mediocrity
* A concern to build mutual trust
* Focused passion for the business
* Recognition of the importance of emotional intelligence

Review:

"Mike Williams has written an outstanding book on leadership. It is clear, readable and full of sound advice. Both those on the threshold of leadership and those someway down the road should read these pages, for they will not find a more inspiring guidebook to the challenges of modern leadership in print today." (Prof John Adair)

"Leadership for Leaders is a very informed, thoughtful and practical guide for private and public sector leaders. It will help them to better appreciate both the theory and the practice of this immensely important and vast subject. It's clear that the book is a work of synthesis based on much experience and reflection. A very fine achievement." (Yury Boshyk, Chairman of Global Executive Learning and the annual Global Forum on Executive Development and Business Driven Action Learning.)

"I found this book to be both an informative and enjoyable read and, in answer to the question you pose at the beginning 'Will it help to develop the leaders, who develop the people, who develop the business?', the answer is a firm 'yes'. I think from the 'practitioner's' perspective, the book maps a clear path through the myriad of theories and concepts which abound about leadership. I particularly found Chapter 2 to be very useful in this context. Where the book is very good is that it gives the practising CEO some food for thought, rather than dictating theory to them. The "Dimensions to Management and Leadership'" Model (fig10 p58 ) and the summary chart (pp108 - 109), listing the thirteen activities for leaders to explore as to how they can foster talent, are both excellent examples of the guiding thought process, familiar throughout the book.

Very enjoyable."
(Paul Winter, CEO, The Leadership Trust)
