'a structured step by step guide which is easy to follow and implement' Financial Advisor

From the Inside Flap

This important book is an invaluable resource for HR professionals and executive coaches who are charged with working with exceptional leaders, in order to prepare them to take on broader leadership responsibilities. Accelerating Your Development as a Leader helps to demystify the process of high-potential leadership development and translate this process into a well-defined plan of action.

In this groundbreaking book, Robert Barner—an expert on leadership development—outlines a powerful five-step process for increasing leaders' readiness to assume next-level assignments. Leaders will find that they can use these steps to identify and clearly define their development goals, assess their own progress in development, extract the most from developmental assignments, improve their organizational brands, and make mid-course corrections to their planning process.

Managers, HR professionals, and executive coaches will find that they can use these steps to help leaders develop more effectively, within less time. They will also learn how to make the best use of developmental feedback, identify and manage developmental assignments, and fully engage in, and leverage managerial and third party coaching.

This book is highly recommended for anyone who is attempting to strengthen their leadership talent pipeline and develop a more systematic approach to leadership development and coaching.
