Today's companies want leaders who can "lead from the front", take a clear position, create meaningful relationships, and "know themselves" while simultaneously building businesses. Employees want leaders who are authentic and inspire trust, those who set high standards and respect their unique talents. In Head, Heart, and Guts the authors, all from the world's leading executive development firm, argue that traditional leadership development focuses too much on the "head," and that it is critical for companies to identify and integrate other capabilities into the development of leaders. This book reveals the three most important leadership capabilities, the abilities to implement, empathize, and take risks, and tells how to put them into action.
