Leadership Solutions: The Pathway to Bridge the Leadership Gap
RELEASE DATE : September 2007
From the Publisher
Leadership capacity has emerged as a key source of competitive advantage in today’s economy. But many organizations struggle to build the leadership capacity they need in order to thrive in the present and the future, and to close the leadership gap that commonly exists.
Leadership Solutions picks up where the authors’ previous book, The Leadership Gap: Building Leadership Capacity for Competitive Advantage, left off, offering concrete and precise strategies to close the leadership gap. It explains in detail how to conduct a Leadership Gap Analysis™, a comprehensive diagnostic process that pinpoints exactly where the gaps are in both organizational and individual leadership. It analyzes the challenges precisely, helps in understanding the nature of the organization’s leadership deficit, and generates leadership solutions tailored to the organization’s particular needs and shortcomings.
Too many organizations try to do it all, attacking the leadership gap on every front until resources run out, without succeeding in closing the gap in any one area. Leadership Solutions details a process that helps to identify and prioritize leadership deficits, pinpointing which areas should be addressed first. Leadership Solutions provides readers with a comprehensive approach to conduct a leadership gap analysis, leading to the implementation of targeted solutions. This approach ensures that limited resources are applied where they matter most, and ensures that the organization derives the greatest return on its investment in building leadership capacity.
It provides practical strategies for senior managers and HR leaders to close the leadership gap in their organizations, and to unleash their internal leadership potential to drive business results.
An organizational guide to assessing, measuring, and building leadership capacity.
