Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The authors, all consultants, offer a fresh perspective on leadership. They contend that while analytical abilities continue to be the important focus for executives (the head), successful leaders now also need emotional intelligence (or heart) and the ability to evaluate and take risks (or guts.) We learn that an executive with all three capabilities is termed a mature leader, and while everyone has a natural style, a mature leader is flexible in considering options outside his comfort zone. Since most company cultures are head-oriented and have management depth with cognitive ability, executives often need development in emotional and risk-taking skills. Dotlich, Peter C. Cairo, and Stephen H. Rhinesmith suggest hiring practices that consider all three talents and force executives to engage in learning experiences in a wide range of assignments, including some before they are ready to handle them. This is clearly an infomercial for the authors' consulting activities, yet it contains useful ideas for leadership in today's complex business world. Mary Whaley
