Wisdom for Developing Extraordinary Leaders
"This book contains a rich collection of wisdom, experience, and insight for addressing the gaps in learning and development that the traditional models for training, talent development, and succession planning fail to address. As you address your own executive development needs or those of others, we hope you′ll create your own recipe for pulling everything together. A rich stock of openness, vulnerability, and learning readiness forms the base for developing leadership capacity and can carry all of the ingredients that high–performing managers need to set the table for extraordinary leadership."
