About the Book :
The task of Leader is to inspire others to achieve great results. It sounds simple, but leaders today are operating in an incredibly demanding environment. The radical transparency of the modern world has radically changed leadership. Few leaders are taught the critical communication skills that enable them to be inspiring.
In The Language of Leaders the Chairman & CEOs of 60 top organizations reveal what they’ve learned about communicating in the age of transparency. By being open and frank about the demands they face in an increasingly challenging environment, they provide invaluable lessons for the both existing and aspiring leaders alike.
The difference between competent communication and inspiring communication can be the difference between poor performance and outstanding results. The traditional model for what constitutes a good leader is changing and CEOs and HR professionals now believe the ability to understand, motivate and inspire Others is the characteristic that is most important when recruiting senior leaders.
Based on original interviews with an extraordinary list of 60 top leaders from a wide range of business sectors, The Language of Leaders provides a unique insight into how these leaders have responded to the demands of a transparent world, reports on what they have learned and creates a lexicon for successful communication.
Their message is resoundingly clear - communication is one of the top three crucial skills of leadership. It is only through mastering this skill that leaders can effectively engage with people within and outside an organization and ultimately build trust - the essential pre-requisite of success.
Filled with actionable lessons and insights from leading CEOs of high-profile global organizations, The Language of Leaders is a book that anybody in a leadership position, or who aspires to lead, should read and keep on their desks.
