Go Beyond Generic Leadership: Become an Outstanding Leader in Your Unique Environment
To succeed, leaders must understand and apply the core principles of leadership–but that’s not enough. You need to shape your approach for any unique situation. Too many leaders don’t know how to do that–and that’s why they fail. Ultimate Leadership shows how to adapt the principles of leadership to different challenges, contexts, and organizations.
Russell E. Palmer–who has had three very different, highly successful careers as head of one of the world’s largest accounting firms, Dean of the Wharton School, and an entrepreneur–helps you identify the leadership model most appropriate for your environment, and how to lead accordingly. You’ll learn better ways to lead your equals, help an organization weather crises, transform its culture, lead entrepreneurial organizations, lead global organizations…even lead non-profit and academic institutions.
Then, drawing on interviews with an extraordinary spectrum of outstanding leaders, Palmer helps you master the attribute every leader must have: the ability to inspire your unique organization, even in the face
of the most daunting challenges.
