Becoming a Leader of Leaders — China Program

Intensifying demands for high-performance leadership are pressing teams and organizations everywhere to become more flexible and proactive. Senior-level executives at the helm of an organization are finding that effective leadership requires a skill set and capacity to lead that is both like and unlike what they have already experienced and learned. Today’s senior leaders need to think more strategically, communicate more persuasively, and act more decisively — all while developing the leadership of those around them.

Becoming a Leader of Leaders draws on new research and insights — as well as on challenging times and pivotal leadership moments in history — to provide you with strategies to strengthen your leadership and build a highly effective team for getting the job done, both today and tomorrow.
