How To Be Exceptional
"We have moved from a focus on fixing leadership weaknesses all the way over to a focus on building strengths. Without question, it is the most profound change in this realm to occur in the past 50 years." -- John Zenger and Joseph Folkman, from the book
You run a business department, a division, or an entire company. Everything is going smoothly, everyone respects your abilities, and no one complains about you. You are a good, talented business leader.
But are you exceptional? Because in these difficult business times, true success requires nothing less.
From the leadership gurus of Zenger Folkman, How to Be Exceptional provides a revolutionary approach to leadership development. Instead of focusing on your weaknesses and how to overcome them, focus on your strengths--and learn how to magnify them.
How to Be Exceptional explains how to:
Pinpoint your best leadership traits and choose the right development target for yourself
Use feedback and action-learning on the job to elevate your strengths
Apply Zenger Folkman's revolutionary "cross-training" method to escalate your leadership competencies into the top 90th percentile
Ensure that your fully developed strengths are sustainable by building follow-through into your development plan
When you magnify your leadership competencies to the level of exceptional, employee engagement increases, productivity rises, and profitability soars. Learn how to make your business and career dreams a reality.
