Remarkable Leadership: Unleashing Your Leadership Potential One Skill at a Time
by Kevin Eikenberry
$27.95 (hardcover) Jossey-Bass (August, 2007)
His latest book outlines a plan for focusing on one of twelve competencies each month. These core competencies define the remarkable leader as "someone who champions change, communicates powerfully, develops others, builds relationships, focuses on customers, influences with impact, thinks innovatively, values collaboration and teamwork, solves problems and makes decisions, takes responsibility and accountability, manages projects and processes successfully, and sets goals and supports goal setting."
The overarching, thirteenth competency—the remarkable Leader learns continuously—is emphasized throughout the book.
The book is designed to help identify the parts of your personal leadership package and help you develop those parts, and any others you wish to work on, to become the leader you are capable of becoming. At the same time, the book explores real-world concerns such as focus, limited time, incremental improvement, and how we learn.
Great for anyone who wants to hone their skills, Remarkable Leader invites readers to discover the leader inside oneself.
