Much as Good to Great described what separates top companies from the rest, The Next Level: What Insiders Know about Executive Success shows executives what separates leadership success from failure at the next level.

Every day, high performers are tapped to be executives and then left alone to figure out how to succeed in their new role. When this happens, most executives rely on strengths that served them well earlier in their careers. As executive coach Scott Eblin explains, this is why 40 percent of them fail. Moving successfully to the executive level requires knowing which behaviours and beliefs to let go, as well as which new ones to pick up.

This confidence-building book outlines a program for success based on frank advice from accomplished senior executives around the world on what to do and, just as important, what to avoid. Like having a personal executive coach at your side, this valuable book shows you what to pick up and let go of to be successful at the next level.

This fully revised edition of The Next Level is an essential addition to any leadership development or executive education toolkit.

Authors:
Claudio Feser, Michael Rennie, Nicolai Chen Nielsen

Traditional approaches to leadership development focus on a small number of individuals at the top. However, in today's world of constant change and decentralized decision-making, organizations need effective leaders at all levels of their organizations. That requires a much broader and deeper pool of leadership talent, and most organizations fall far short of what they need.Leadership at Scale defines a new approach. In it, top experts at McKinsey, the world's number one leadership factory, expose the secrets of how to drive leadership development that reaches the entire organization, adapts to diverse contexts and achieves impact at scale. Grounded in extensive research and the global experience of +25 leadership experts and illustrated with a fictional step-by-step case with numerous real-life examples, this book provides leaders with the systematic and fact-based approach they need to unlock organizational performance through leadership effectiveness.

Talent is Overrated

Geoff Colvin
Authors:
Geoff Colvin

What if everything you know about raw talent, hard work, and great performance is wrong? Very few people are truly great at what they do. But why aren't they? Why don't we manage businesses like Warren Buffett, play golf like Tiger Woods or play the violin like Itzhak Perlman? Greatness doesn't come from inborn talent but from 'deliberate practice'. This isn't the kind of hard work that your parents told you about, but more of it equals better performance. Talent is Overrated will change the way you think about your life and work - and will inspire you to achieve more in everything you do. Great performance isn't reserved for a preordained few.
