Results-based leadership by David Ulrich( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 2,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Results-Based Leadership challenges the conventional wisdom surrounding leadership. The authors - experts in human resources and leadership development - argue that it is not enough to gauge leaders by personal traits such as character, knowledge, style, and values. Effective leaders, say the authors, do more than master the attributes of leadership. They know how to connect their attributes with results." "Results-Based Leadership shows executives how to deliver results in four specific areas: results for employees, the organization, its customers, and its investors. The authors provide action-oriented guidelines for readers to develop and hone their own results-based leadership skills. They look beyond the quick fixes, buzzwords, and trends that typify many leadership programs, and focus instead on producing results that can be measured and integrated into any business strategy or corporate culture."--Jacket
The extraordinary leader : turning good managers into great leaders by John H Zenger( )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For too long, the subject of effective leadership has been shrouded in fog and ambiguity. This book removes the shroud to reveal leadership as a skill, one that can be consciously learned and developed by anyone. This breakthrough book identifies the competencies necessary for effective leadership, not by guessing or postulating but by analyzing the responses of tens of thousands of workforce members as they describe, in effect, "What makes a great leader?" The authors analyze the answers and provide a broad and universal model for achieving exceptional results. They outline the five core competencies that form the basis for successful leadership and detail techniques that include: Methods that top organizations use to develop leaders from within their own ranks; Key competencies that leaders must have and techniques for mastering them; Practical steps for developing your own leadership skills. A major weakness in most leadership development programs has been the tendency to aim low and strive for incremental improvements in individual areas of weakness. When the results inevitably fail to impact the bottom line, organizations abandon programs as unsuccessful and again resume their misguided focus on uncovering and eliminating leadership weaknesses instead of identifying and developing leadership strengths. This books instead focuses on the ability for individuals to hone their leadership competencies in multiple areas, and organizations to develop great leaders in as many areas as possible. It provides research-based strategies for strengthening leadership both in individuals and in organizations and, in the process, delivers a solid yet flexible leadership development program that will provide long-term value to virtually any organization

Jack Zenger : the inspiring leader( Visual )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What defines great leadership? Using original research on 360-degree feedback data for thousands of managers, Jack Zenger, with colleagues Joseph Folkman and Scott Edinger, identified 16 specific competencies the most effective leaders share. Of these, the ability to inspire and motivate others to high performance had the most significant, positive impact on the performance of the organization. And yet, it was the area in which managers were weakest. Program highlights * What one critical competency must leaders possess? * The business case for inspiring and engaging your employees. * How charismatic leaders connect with others. Inspiring others is a "soft skill," one that many believe you need to be born with to possess. But in evaluating the research, Dr. Zenger and his colleagues determined that inspiring others to greatness is, in fact, something that can and should be learned. The attributes of inspiring leaders, such as being a role model or a change champion, can be acquired. The skills, ranging from goal setting to developing staff to being a good communicator, are learnable. And even the most critical characteristic of an inspiring leader the ability to make an emotional connection with a team is achievable, by building on key strengths in your own personality and leadership approach. John H. (Jack) Zenger, Cofounder and CEO of Zenger Folkman, is the author or co-author of numerous books, including "The Inspiring Leader" and "The Extraordinary Leader." He received his MBA from UCLA and a PhD from the University of Southern California
