The success of today’s complex organizations depends on a highly functioning, collaborative group of senior leaders who augment rather than distract the CEO. Leadership expert Chris Henderson offers a formula for building a leadership team whose members trust one another, share common goals, assume “collective accountability” and learn from their mistakes without pointing fingers – a team that moves mountains. Henderson draws upon his considerable experience with the Maasai tribe in Kenya to demonstrate how successful communities function. His insightful manual will appeal to leaders in mid-size to large organizations who want their leadership teams to be greater than the sum of their parts.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why firms must move beyond just developing individual leaders,
- What strategies you can use to build collaborative leadership teams, and
- How six kinds of conversations can help you strengthen your leadership team and your organization.
