Summary Corporate America's leading consultant explains how top companies solve the problem of leadership succession. A serious crisis looms in American management today. More and more CEOs are failing; there remains an acute shortage of capable replacements. The true dilemma in leadership is the stagnant state of corporate leadership development. Because companies fail to hone their unit managers' leadership abilities, they are never able to fill their succession pipelines. With unit managers stagnating, companies have difficulty executing at every level, compounding the crisis. In this book, bestselling author Ram Charan shows how top companies approach leadership development as a core competency, recognizing that an adaptable leadership pool is a competitive advantage, and focusing their attention on bringing out the best in the leaders they have. Charan reveals exactly what's wrong with corporate leadership development and tells how to make it right. He explains the concept of a leadership "gene pool" and shows how companies can discover just what "DNA" they need to succeed. He also details how to uncover the hidden leaders in a company, when and where to bring in fresh talent, how to coach, measure, and reward leadership, and much more. For CEOs, directors, and anyone involved in leadership development, "Leaders at All Levels" will be an eye-opening guide on how to get succession right. Ram Charan (Dallas, TX) is coauthor (with Larry Bossidy) of the bestselling "Execution" (ISBN: 0-7126-2598-4) and a highly sought-after advisor to Fortune 500 companies such as GE, DuPont, Bank of America, and Colgate-Palmolive. He has taught at both the Harvard Business School and the Kellogg School of Northwestern University. He is the author of "The Leadership Pipeline" (ISBN: 0-7879-5172-2).
