Based on extensive research carried out over seven years with more than 2,500 senior managers in ten different companies in both the USA and Europe, this book challenges accepted ‘norms’ and establishes the seven key competencies required for successful leadership today.
Michael Williams establishes and explains the seven key competency clusters that matter most today: Goal orientation; Integrity; Close engagement with others; ‘Helicopter’ perception; Resilient resourcefulness; Personal ‘horsepower’; and Resonant communications. He also shows how much talent lies untapped in organizations and proposes methods of mobilizing all this potential. He demonstrates how, for ultimate success, the key competencies need to be linked closely to: Personal consistency; Discipline and integrity; Intolerance of mediocrity; A concern to build mutual trust; Focused passion for the business; and Recognition of the importance of emotional intelligence.
