The Hero Leader (Paperback)
Some leaders run into a glass ceiling on their potential because they either ignore or accept their blind spots. Other leaders run themselves ragged, trying to be all things to all people. But the world today is too complicated for executive specialists, and real life makes it impossible to be omni-competent.
So what's the solution? In The Hero Leader, author and executive coach Stephen Graves paints a revealing portrait of what today's leaders must become. The Hero Leader works to develop competence where he is weak and discover competence where it comes naturally. Graves expounds 7 collective qualities that the Hero Leader constantly strives to keep in balance because the goal is not natural leadership, but effective leadership.
