Book Description

In this ground-breaking new book, Ram Charan, co-author of the bestselling Execution, redefines leadership by focusing on eight specific practical skills that, if mastered, are guaranteed to bring success.

1. Positioning ­­- ­­­formulating a clear central idea that chimes with your customers' desires and allows the business to be profitable.

2. Detecting patterns - recognising key variables that may create barriers to growth.

3. Managing the social system - influencing the workplace environment so that people can pull together and make the right decisions at the right time.

4. Selecting (and deselecting) people - spotting talent, and making the change when the fit isn't right.

5. Leading your management team - trusting, and inspiring, an effective team of managers.

6. Setting goals - deciding what the business can achieve.

7. Setting priorities - assessing the actions that need to be taken in order to meet your goals.

8. Dealing with external parties - making sure that outside power groups beyond your control do not affect your business unduly.

    The 8 know-hows (1.positioning and repositioning, 2. pinpointing external change, 3. leading the social system, 4. judging people, 5. molding a team, 6. setting goals, 7. setting laser-sharp priorities, and, 8. dealing with forces beyond the market) can be interfered by 6 personal traits (1. ambition - to accomplishing something noteworthy but not win at all costs, 2. drive and tenacity - to search, persist, and follow through but not hold on too long, 3. self-confidence - to overcome the fear of failure, fear of response, or the need to be liked and use power judiciously but not become arrogant and narcissistic, 4. psychological openness - to be receptive to new and different ideas and not shut other people down, 5. realism - to see what can actually be accomplished and not gloss over problems or assume the worst and 6. appetite for learning - to continue to grow and improve the know-hows and not repeat the same mistakes.) and improved by 3 cognitive traits (1. a wide range of altitudes - to transition from the conceptual to the specific, 2. a broad cognitive bandwidth - to take in a broad range of input and see the big picture, and, 3. ability to reframe - to see things from different perspectives)
