Leadership is about converting vision into reality via strategic thinking and co-ordinated action. It is about defining and clarifying a vision and inspiring others not only to 'sign up' to the vision, but to commit themselves enthusiastically to sharing responsibility for the process of implementing it. Extraordinary Leadership provides a unique synthesis of the very best thinking on how to manage both performance and uncertainty, and a practical summary of the models that constitute best practice - both for business and for the public sector. The title includes: * A methodology for approaching strategic planning * An understanding of the personal characteristics and life long-learning habits which define and strengthen extraordinary leadership * An opportunity to reflect on one's own strengths and areas for improvement * Models for converting vision into action with discreet stages and helpful checklists * A holistic approach to implementing performance improvement * A guidebook and toolkit with which leaders can develop the required competencies in members of their management teams. Also provided is an entirely non-technical introduction to the field of e-strategy and the leadership challenges of the new global economy. Written in an accessible and practical style, Extraordinary Leadership provides the reader with a clear understanding of the concepts and practice of leadership from the perspective of Peter Reed's 20 years' international experience in development and consulting.Please see Peter J Reed's own website at www.extraordinary-leadership.com for more information.
