After interviewing 2,600 high-performing senior executives, veteran executive consultants Ron A. Carucci and Eric C. Hansen offer an excellent manifesto for new leaders. They used IBM’s Watson, one of the world’s most powerful analytical tools, to dissect their findings about leadership. They learned what traits, behaviors and actions make good leaders great – regardless of their organization or industry. The result is an up-to-date, indispensable guide to becoming a senior leader and succeeding at the top.
