We live in an exciting time. Technology, globalization and demographic shifts provide new potential for personal and business success. Yet, research tells that only 30% of our attempts to implement change succeed amid the turbulence we encounter both within and outside today’s organizations. We need new ways of thinking and doing if we are to turn potential into performance. Managing at the Leading Edge provides a new evidence-based roadmap for leadership success in a dynamic context.

Managing at the Leading Edge highlights lessons from the navigation and piloting practices used in high performing sailing. In the contemporary “white water” business environment, as at sea, achieving goals requires choosing a destination amidst uncertainty, adjusting to continually shifting conditions, converting the push and pull of environmental forces into momentum and using different skills at different times to negotiate hazards and achieve success.

Easy-to-grasp and recall, this book proposes a framework of leadership with a dual focus on navigating and piloting. This framework is supported by new evidence-based insights about personal and organizational high performance. Systematic comparisons of high performing leaders and organizations with leaders and organizations that have not yet achieved this distinction illustrate how the principles of navigation and piloting apply. This research featured surveys of over 1,000 senior and mid-level leaders, the results of over a 100 interviews and the author’s extensive consultation experience with a host of leaders and organizations.

Through case studies, discussion of relevant research, practical tools and templates, Managing at the Leading Edge will help you learn:

• The critical tasks of leader navigating and piloting that lead to successful business change
• Leadership skills through which the critical tasks of navigating and piloting are successfully executed including accountability, influence, problem solving agility and engagement
• Strategies and tactics for managing points along a strategic initiative’s leading edge through with resistance to change is converted into momentum and progress
• The critical hand-offs between the navigating and piloting functions and these functions drive change at the leading edge as synchronized system of high performance leadership
• Leadership practices that create organizational high performance

Armed with leadership capabilities of high performance navigating and piloting you will be able to recognize and act on opportunities for enhanced leadership impact and achieve results that matter for you, your peers and your organization.

A lifesaver for those drowning in the demands of leadership

Leadership Hacks is the business leader’s guide to getting things done. Over the years, the leader’s role has expanded to encompass more duties, more responsibility and more accountability — yet we’re still stuck with the same 24 hours in every day. The evolving business environment leaves many of us struggling to achieve against constantly shifting priorities, competitors and deadlines, and we are forever expected to do more with less. Is it even possible to make a real impact? Yes! This book shows you how to sort through the madness and get back to getting results. Identify your major speed bumps, and let the action-focused discussion gives you practical workarounds that will streamline your day and help you make things happen.

Covering hacks at personal, one-on-one, and team levels, this book is packed with tips, tricks and advice that will help you eliminate the distractions and harness technology; communicate effectively, delegate clearly and coach confidently; and make meetings and missions that matter for your team. You’ll achieve greater results, open the channels of communication and look like a rock star to those still struggling with the daily deluge.

Identify what distractions slow you down Fast-track your productivity to do more in less time Streamline delegation so your people perform faster Re-route meetings into productive conversations Learn the communication and technology shortcuts that get faster results

Leaders are recognised for their results, but judged by their impact. Don’t let yourself fall victim to ever-mounting demands. Leadership Hacks shows you how to hack your day, shift your approach, boost your communication and start making your way to the top.

The aim of this book is primarily to enable those wanting to invest in coaching to be able to do so in the most effective way whether they are doing this as an organisation or as an individual. It illustrates the impact coaching can have and identifies changes in leadership and management demands and expectations. We consider what a coachee gets out of coaching, different formats for coaching and its potential value at Board level, including for the Chief Executive Officer, and for other individuals or groups such as new recruits or those who have just been promoted. We look at the difference between coaching and mentoring and the potential benefits that both can have, especially in combination. We look at how coaching programmes can be introduced effectively and how a leader might introduce coaching in their organisation. We address the international dimension with many organisations looking to ensure that leadership is based on similar values throughout its global reach. This book is unashamedly about business coaching. Quality coaching engagement will impact into an individual's wider life priorities and use of time and energy. But the effective delivery of business priorities has to be at the basis of introducing business coaching.

Your Talent Development Atlas

If you’ve been directing your organization’s talent development effort during the last few years, you might think you’re on a journey without a map.

Elaine Biech, a legendary leader in training and development, understands the road ahead and has partnered with ATD to present a new book that will point the way—ATD’s Foundations of Talent Development: Launching, Leveraging, and Leading Your Organization's TD Effort.

Biech imbues this comprehensive volume with the energy and passion she has manifested in a career spanning more than three decades. In her hands, you have a trusted adviser who provides guidance, leadership, and direction to your organization. Biech painstakingly guides you over 36 chapters—taking you from developing your talent development strategy, creating an operating plan, and reinforcing your organization’s talent development mindset, through design and delivery, measurement and evaluation, and preparing for the future. No matter where you are in your development, you will be able to pick up this book and select chapters that describe how you can help your organization. What’s more, Biech has included a new customized model to assist you. Plus, she’s invited dozens of her friends and colleagues to contribute—well-known authors, ATD subject matter experts, and icons in the field—to present a cross-section of voices and approaches in the field.

Develop the qualities of strategic leadership and become an active contributor to the short- and long-term success of your organization

Today's organizations face two daunting challenges: 1. How to create new sources of competitive advantage to sustain long-term growth, and 2. How to engage leaders at every level of the organization so that they are more proactive and forward-looking in their area of responsibility. The Art of Strategic Leadership uses a unique approach to examine what it means to be a strategic leader. Instead of focusing on the skills, behaviors, and tools found in typical books on strategic leadership, the authors shed light on the attributes and qualities necessary to lead strategic change and help transform a business. Strategic leadership is what modern leadership is all about. Organizations expect leaders to anticipate and be proactive more than ever before. In this book, the authors draw on their vast experience working directly with leaders at all levels and use an intriguing narrative to explain this inside-out approach to understanding strategic leadership. The narrative follows the journey of how one manager discovered these critically important qualities. You will experience first-hand how these values and attributes manifest in the lives of realistic leaders; how they orchestrate long-term strategic change needed for the organization to compete and survive and actively shape the future while delivering short-term results.

The Art of Strategic Leadership provides the content that will help you informally assess and reflect on your own strategic leadership qualities—those that are strengths and those that indicate areas you need to develop. It will guide you as you incorporate these values and qualities into your own leadership style and become a more effective catalyst for change. This book will help you in the following ways:

Develop a more proactive, forward-thinking approach to leadership Approach strategy from both short- and long-term perspectives Adopt the core values and principles of a strategic leader Model the qualities exhibited by powerful leaders

Strategic leaders serve as powerful examples to others in the organization. Their qualities and traits spread rapidly to those around them, empowering people at every level to take a more active role in meeting the demands of the future. The Art of Strategic Leadership will help you deepen and broaden your understanding of the core qualities of strategic leadership, leaving you better equipped to lead yourself and your team to a better place and create greater value for customers, owners, and employees.

The role of the manager is to achieve the business goals set for them and at the same time to provide an environment that allows their team members to be effective and satisfied with their work while developing their full potential. It is not a balance between work and people as both outcomes must be achieved.

The ‘10 things successful managers know and do’ is based a coherent framework for managing people in the context of an organisation i.e. the ‘Leadership Framework’. It addresses leadership at the individual, team and organisational levels. It’s based not just on management customs but is underpinned by solid research combining sociology and psychology with management science.

At the Frameworks core is a strong manager - employee relationship. This is a two-way, trusting, productive, working relationship focused on achieving business goals with team members working to their full potential. For managers to be a successful manager they must:

Understand their role. The role of the manager is to achieve the business goals set for them and at the same time, provide an environment that allows their team members to be effective and satisfied with their work while developing their full potential.Understand the role of others. Organisations have extensive networks of people working together and unless there is a clear understanding of the accountabilities and authorities of other roles and strong understanding of the legitimate nature of these working relationships, work will be inefficient and conflict can occur.Build a team that works together to deliver business outcomes bringing together the full capability of team members. There must be a shared understanding of why the team exists and what they are expected to deliver. The manager creates a work environment that encourages a good flow of information and advice in all directions – top down, bottom up, across the team and the organisation.Build mutual trust and a strong, two-way, trusting, working relationship with each team member. The focus of the relationship is to achieve business goals and the employee working to their full potential. Productive work is enabled by systemic trust and fairness and is reduced by fear.Have integrated models for people and work. Without a clear and integrated framework managers will not have a theoretical or practical base of knowledge for what they do or how they do it. This can result in poor decision making and inconsistent treatment of team members, work will be inefficient and conflict can occur.Create effective roles and put with good people in them. Effectively designed roles fill with capable people is the foundation to building a successful team.Effectively assign work to team members and then assess this work to ensure it has been performed at the required standard. Effectively assigning and assessing work enables managers to achieve their business outcomes and at the same time allows team members to be satisfied with their work and helps build strong manager - employee working relationships.Build an effective team, so that each member is fully committed to and capable of moving in the direction set. They create opportunities to coach team members on how to be more effective.Recognize and reward team members appropriately and fairly. The ideal state is where the employee can say ‘I feel I am working at a level suited to my capability and I am fairly rewarded for that work. I feel I am contributing to the success of the organisation and I can see a clear link between my performance and my remuneration’.Identify ways to improve how work can be done more effectively and efficiently and implement the necessary changes for this to occur. When the direction of the team or organisation changes, managers lead their team in the direction set.

Performing these ‘10 things’ effectively will make managers and create a work environment where people feel productive and valued.

Conquer the most daunting change initiative with the right people, tools, and strategies.

James Dallas' Mastering the Challenges of Leading Change is an informative, insightful guide to effectively leading the transition through change. While most change management books present case studies about what happened at other companies, this book is based on the author's own experiences managing over 10 transformational and turnaround initiatives, 15 acquisition integrations, and 5 operations/quality shared services centers of excellence. By relating personal lessons learned, how they were subsequently applied, and how you can benefit from them, this book provides a unique first-hand perspective on successful agents of change. You'll learn the qualities and skills required to usher in the new paradigm, and how to break a large initiative into manageable chunks that are more likely to proceed as planned. By crafting your strategy based on proven methods, you're far and away more likely to meet or even exceed your change objectives.

The majority of change initiatives fail because people mistakenly think that a change agent is the same as a project leader. They're not. This book shows you why, and how get the tools, strategies, and people you need at the helm of your initiative to come out the other side much stronger as an organization.

Learn the critical skills required for effective change management Assess the difficulty and politics of a change initiative Choose the right people to help implement the change See past obstacles and lead effectively in a crisis

Change is occurring within and across all industries, countries, and organizations. They begin with the best of intentions, but most fail to meet their objectives. Don't let your organization be one of the failures. Mastering the Challenges of Leading Change shows you how to plan, lead, and manage a successful transition.

Beat the odds with a bold strategy from McKinsey & Company

“Every once in a while, a genuinely fresh approach to business strategy appears” – legendary business professor Richard Rumelt, UCLA

McKinsey & Company’s newest, most definitive, and most irreverent book on strategy—which thousands of executives are already using—is a must-read for all C-suite executives looking to create winning corporate strategies.

Strategy Beyond the Hockey Stick is spearheading an empirical revolution in the field of strategy. Based on an extensive analysis of the key factors that drove the long-term performance of thousands of global companies, the book offers a ground-breaking formula that enables you to objectively assess your strategy’s real odds of future success.

"This book is fundamental. The principles laid out here, with compelling data, are a great way around the social pitfalls in strategy development.” — Frans Van Houten, CEO, Royal Philips N.V.

The authors have discovered that over a 10-year period, just 1 in 12 companies manage to jump from the middle tier of corporate performance—where 60% of companies reside, making very little economic profit—to the top quintile where 90% of global economic profit is made. This movement does not happen by magic—it depends on your company’s current position, the trends it faces, and the big moves you make to give it the strongest chance of vaulting over the competition.

This is not another strategy framework. Rather, Strategy Beyond the Hockey Stick shows, through empirical analysis and the experiences of dozens of companies that have successfully made multiple big moves, that to dramatically improve performance, you have to overcome incrementalism and corporate inertia.

“A different kind of book—I couldn’t put it down. Inspiring new insights on the facts of what it takes to move a company’s performance, combined with practical advice on how to deal with real-life dynamics in management teams.” —Jane Fraser, CEO, Citigroup Latin America

Build your career by design not by accident

Why do some people get to the top while others—who work just as hard—don’t get past middle management? Two words: Executive Edge.

Your technical skills may get you the job, but your interpersonal skills and emotional intelligence will get you the promotion. In Enhancing Your Executive Edge, Kim Zoller and Kerry Preston provide the specific tools you need to make the jump from middle or upper management to an executive-level position. It’s not about being among the standouts in a company. It’s about being the standout.

Zoller and Preston emphasize the importance of self-awareness in relationships with colleagues, clients, and executives—including first impressions, body language, and strategic communication. Enhancing Your Executive Edge will help you hone the following:

Self-Management and Social Awareness Personal Branding Communication and Presence Business Protocol Motivation, Perseverance, and Excellence

Competence, passion, and hard work open doors. But when you’re going for the very top spot, the competition increases exponentially—so you need to differentiate yourself. This book is designed to help you develop that special quality few people possess.

Set yourself apart and offer value where the competition doesn’t by enhancing your executive edge.

Praise for Enhancing Your Executive Edge

“With their concrete, hands-on style, Preston and Zoller teach your executives how to become leaders. And with that leadership, your brand will become more established—bigger and bolder. Enhancing Your Executive Edge delivers.”
—Edgar Bronfman Jr., former chairman and CEO of Warner Music

“Enhancing Your Executive Edge shows you how to grow professionally. Preston and Zoller offer practical advice for those seeking to raise the bar.”
—David Hoyt, president of The John Maxwell Co.

“A must-read lesson in how to succeed in today’s global marketplace.”
—Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts

“Zoller and Preston have discovered what turns good leaders into great ones. Enhancing Your Executive Edge provides a comprehensive framework we can all follow to get there.”
—JJ Ramberg, host of MSNBC’s Your Business and cofounder of Goodsearch.com

“Kim and Kerry are committed to helping you build your brand and interactions with others. This book offers the path to building your executive edge.”
—John Roth, vice president of sales, service, and marketing at General Motors

“If you’re not getting the results you want by focusing only on your technical skills, it is time to give your executive edge a boost. Zoller and Preston take us through strategies to lead successfully.”
—Ann Adams, director of management development at Mattel, Inc.

Move past the obstacles and implement your new strategy

Move is your guide to mobilizing your whole organization to take your business forward. Whatever your needed transformation may be: a new initiative, a new market, a new product, your fresh strategy is up against a powerful foe: an organization's tendency to stay very busy and completely engaged what it's already doing. This book shows you how to cut through resistance and get your team engaged and proactively doing the new thing! Author Patty Azzarello draws on over twenty-five years of international business management experience to identify the chronic challenges that keep organizations from decisively executing strategy, and to give you a practical game plan for breaking through. Leaders tend to assume that stalls in execution are inevitable, unchanging parts of the workplace—but things can change. At the heart of every execution problem is the fact that there simply are not enough people doing what the business needs. This guide shows you how to get your entire organization on board—remove the fear, excuses, and hurdles—and uphold the new pursuit against distractions and dissent.

No transformation can succeed without suitable engagement from the whole organization, but building engagement can be difficult, uncomfortable, and tentative. This book shows you how to get it done.

Get your organization to embrace and personally commit to the new work Remove obstacles and passive aggressive attacks that block progress Defend new strategic initiatives against short term pressures to revert to "business as usual" Sustain momentum and the desire to move forward Make sure no one is ever asking, 'Are we still doing this?'

Inertia isn't just a law of the universe, it's a law in the workplace that can be a major obstacle to making things happen. The great thing about inertia is that it cuts two ways: a body at rest remains at rest, but a body in motion remains in motion. People love to finish things. Move shows you how to make successful execution the new norm—starting today.

Throughout Nimble Leader (six volume series), we explore key concepts that have proven to be practical, useful, and applicable to achieving sustained improvement in business performance over the long term. In Volume V: Tools for Profit, you will explore axioms for improving business results. Collectively – Market Position, Price, Volume, Mix, Cost, and Operating Working Capital represent what we call the Tools for Profit. They are all interrelated. Together, they represent a powerful framework for how you think, analyze, discuss, and act upon your business in ways that result in improved business performance, improved Operating Profit and improved Cash-flow . . . the lifeblood of every business. The greater the level of 'common' understanding of the Tools for Profit by employees within and across your business's functional areas, the greater the speed, flexibility, and depth of response your organization has relative to how you respond to fast-changing market pressures in a dynamic world. In reading Volume V of Nimble Leader, you will focus on making money! You will learn to relate Market Position – what you stand for in the minds of your customers – to the Price you charge; the Volume of products and services you sell; the Mix of your offering; the Cost you incur to grow your business; and the amount of Operating Working Capital – short term investment – required to support the ongoing operation of your business. At a very fundamental level, you will also learn the 'relative' financial impact of deploying the different Tools for Profit in pursuit of profitable business. You will even explore the impact and power of the dreaded price increase – the most powerful Tool for Profit!
