Life’s tough. Life at the top isn’t necessarily easier. Most people don’t have time or inclination to fully grasp what it takes to be successful at their current level, much less those that lie ahead. Active Leadership offers practical insights and guidelines to help you navigate that journey successfully. It describes the subtle changes in vision, time investment and behavior required to avoid failure and to achieve success at each level.
The author advises CEOs and senior executives in some of the most successful global companies. Having conducted over ten thousand psychological assessments for selection and development, he has been able to look under the hood of many successful, and failing, leaders. This has given him a unique first-hand perspective on getting to the top and achieving lasting success. But this isn’t just one guy’s opinion: these insights are backed up by rigorous research. They will help you succeed at any level, and help you avoid losing ground.
If you understand this journey and make the necessary investments and adjustments, you can become a better leader. By doing so, you can have a positive, lasting and transformative impact on people. But unintended consequences and unanticipated problems lie on the path. Active Leadership is a blueprint for handling those obstacles and achieving success at any level, from supervisor to CEO.
