Summary Transform Your Organization by Scaling Leadership How do senior leaders, in their own words, describe the most effective leaders-the ones that get results, grow the business, enhance the culture and leave in their wake a trail of other really effective leaders' Conversely, how do senior leaders describe the kind of leader that undercuts the organization's capacity and capability to create its future' This book, based on groundbreaking research, shows how senior leaders describe and develop leadership that works, that does not, that scales, and that limits scale.

They also describe with equal precision the High-Reactive leadership that cancels itself out and seriously limits scale. Which type of leader are you' You scale your leadership by increasing the multiple on your leadership in three ways.
