Summary of Pivot Points
Five Decisions Every Successful Leader Must Make
Great leaders make great, difficult, self-defining decisions at crucial “pivot points.”
Leadership development is a multibillion-dollar industry, yet genuine leaders remain in such short supply. Consultant Julia Tang Peters conducted in-depth interviews with five respected business leaders and did extensive leadership research with 500 more professionals. She determined that executives establish and validate their leadership by their attitude toward making decisions. Peters defines leaders based on the quality of their choices in five crucial decisions they make at career “pivot points.” Unfortunately, Peters is often repetitive and at times sounds like a cheerleader for the five leaders she spotlights. getAbstract nonetheless recommends her decision-based leadership model as a tool for leadership development, career analysis and self-guidance.
