Ultimate Leadership | [Russell E. Palmer]

Publisher's Summary

To succeed, leaders must understand and apply the core principles of leadership--but that's not enough. You need to shape your approach for any unique situation. Too many leaders don't know how to do that--and that's why they fail. Ultimate Leadership shows how to adapt the principles of leadership to different challenges, contexts, and organizations. Russell E. Palmer--who has had three very different, highly successful careers as head of one of the world's largest accounting firms, Dean of the Wharton School, and an entrepreneur--helps you identify the leadership model most appropriate for your environment, and how to lead accordingly. You'll learn better ways to lead your equals, help an organization weather crises, transform its culture, lead entrepreneurial organizations, lead global organizations...even lead non-profit and academic institutions.

Then, drawing on interviews with an extraordinary spectrum of outstanding leaders, Palmer helps you master the attribute every leader must have: the ability to inspire your unique organization, even in the face of the most daunting challenges.

  • Achieving empowerment, even in classic "top-down" organizations Exercising strong authority without falling victim to ego or closed-mindedness
  • Transforming an organization of peers Driving changes in a strategic direction when key power centers disagree
  • Turning danger into opportunity Mastering the art of rapid, focused, hands-on execution for organizations in crisis
  • Leading cultural change that sticks Reconnecting structures, processes, and strategies with the new realities you face
  • Learning from the Wharton experience Succeeding in an environment with widely diverse, highly influential stakeholders.

      "Scratched the surface"
      This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

      Instead of providing specific leadership techniques, this book provides an overview of the fact that leadership techniques need to be adjusted based on the situation and an overview of those situations. An important concept, but this book only scratched the surface of that idea instead of providing leadership techniques for each situation.


      You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

      It was a great overview of the concept.
