The absence of effective business leaders invariably leads to failed strategic execution, but learning to be a better leader takes time. Foundational Leaders focuses on leadership that is required for success in strategic execution to help you achieve extraordinary business results in your organization. This book was written for those of you who would like to learn more about how to be a better leader, but are just too busy to read. Each chapter is a white paper on leadership. You can read this book in short intervals and skip around to focus in on your specific areas of interest. Think of this book as your personal mentor, someone you meet for coffee a couple of times a week so that you can receive provocative and inspiring coaching on leadership. Foundational Leaders offers practical advice for someone "in the trenches" of working to implement strategic execution - from someone who has also been working in similar trenches for over 25 years.
