Summary Leading Through Leaders: Driving Strategy, Execution and Change will help you improve your business results by overcoming the challenges of uncertainty, complexity, imperfect decision-making and communication, and staff disengagement. Whilst focused on building collective leadership as a strategic capability, the author provides the means for effective individual leadership: a coherent framework of principles, process and behaviour to create the conditions for success, and the systemic and dynamic integration and alignment of leaders and engaged teams at all levels. Based on the author's 27 years of leadership and consulting experience, and illustrated with case studies and learning from clients such as Cisco, Best Western, ABN AMRO, Pfizer and the NHS, this book provides unique insights into 'effective leadership' in some of the world's best known enterprises. Leading Through Leaders presents an integrated suite of proven and durable principles and tools, and the leadership psychology, that may be adapted and used by any leader. It provides businesses with the intellectual firepower to rise above the fog and clutter of operational issues and focus on strategic priorities, with the confidence that junior leaders and their teams are fully engaged and aligned at the tactical level.-- Publisher description.
