In this ground-breaking new book, Ram Charan, co-author of the bestselling Execution, redefines leadership by focusing on eight specific practical skills that, if mastered, are guaranteed to bring success.

2. Detecting patterns - recognising key variables that may create barriers to growth.

3. Managing the social system - influencing the workplace environment so that people can pull together and make the right decisions at the right time.

4. Selecting (and deselecting) people - spotting talent, and making the change when the fit isn't right.

5. Leading your management team - trusting, and inspiring, an effective team of managers.

6. Setting goals - deciding what the business can achieve.

7. Setting priorities - assessing the actions that need to be taken in order to meet your goals.

8. Dealing with external parties - making sure that outside power groups beyond your control do not affect your business unduly.
