Organizations need leaders, but natural leaders are at least as rare as natural athletes. And, even natural athletes need careful training and development – given that almost everyone is capable of developing some degree of athletic potential. Similarly, the right training and development program can help almost anyone cultivate some degree of leadership potential. In fact, it can help a few people develop extraordinary leadership abilities. Ignoring leadership development is foolish, but at many companies, short-term priorities eclipse the long-term thinking needed to develop a good leadership pipeline. This book’s plain, sensible approach is simple without being simplistic. It is generally lucid and clear, and – somewhat to LetsRead surprise – it does not suffer from having three authors. If you are a leader or need to develop leaders for large corporations, this is a very useful volume.
