9780470679159: The Intangibles of Leadership: The 10 Qualities of Superior Executive Performance

It's the Subtleties that Matter!
What is the real difference between competent leader and extraordinary executive? Is it pedigree, experience, intelligence? The answer is yes...and much more. Exceptional leadership hinges on a complex interaction between individual psychology and unique business needs. At the top rung of the ladder, where the dynamics are most complicated, subtle adjustments in style can produce outstanding results. 

In his new book, The Intangibles of Leadership, Management Psychologist Richard Davis, Ph.D., uncovers patterns in the attributes that truly distinguish those who succeed at the top. What he found was that extraordinary leaders possess certain characteristics that fall between the lines of existing leadership models, yet are fundamental to executive success. Davis explains each of these qualities, the people who exemplify them, how to detect them in others, and most importantly, how to develop the subtle characteristics that will enable them to stand out from the pack.

  • It's often better to aim for silver than for gold
  • Playing hard to get attracts people to you
  • It's important to have a slightly inflated view of your abilities
  • Your peripheral vision is so important
  • It's ok to get angry with your team
  • So many extraordinary executives have gone through crises early in their lives

From the Inside Flap:

WHAT MAKES A GOOD LEADER GREAT?

Businesses have been struggling for decades to identify and develop the qualities that make exceptional leaders. While numerous studies, benchmarks and tests have been successful in identifying the basic traits that narrow the field to people with leadership potential, a crucial gap remains. No single model for leadership holds the promise of working across all businesses and organizations, because there is a spectrum of leadership qualities that informs success in different areas. Not only is leadership highly contextual, but the difference between good leaders and extraordinary ones is subtle, underpinned by thoughtful, often tactical nuances of personality and behavior.

As a partner of RHR International, which is a pioneer in the field of corporate psychology, Dr. Richard Davis has deep first-hand experience providing advice and counsel to companies to increase individual and organizational effectiveness. He brings this rich experience—both within the private and public sectors—to bear in this book.

To distinguish truly exceptional leaders, one must look beyond standard competencies, skills and personality traits. The factors that lie between the lines of existing leadership models must be identified and qualified. These are the keys to success—the intangibles of leadership. In his work assessing and developing top leaders, Dr. Davis has identified ten attributes that help distinguish certain leaders from the rest. In The Intangibles of Leadership, he explores each of these attributes in detail and describes how various leaders cultivate and apply them in their work and in their lives. By using the assessments and implementing the recommended steps and strategies, you can enable the very attributes that are utilized by top leaders. As you will soon see, there are many dividends that will be realized by an organization and its stakeholders guided by revitalized, focused and infectious leadership principles.

There are lots of good leaders; there are few exceptional ones. By revealing the subtle yet powerful traits exhibited by those at the top rungs of the ladder, The Intangibles of Leadership will help you take your own leadership journey as far as it can go.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Intangibles of Leadership:

"... A must read for all aspiring and existing leaders, whatever your field."
-Neville Roberts, Chief Information Officer, Best Buy
 
"...Davis has really nailed down in a practical yet very thoughtful way to really distinguish great leaders, how to identify them and, even more importantly, how to develop more of them. This book brings a tangible dimension to the intangibles of Leadership."
-Stephane Charbonnier, Global Head of Talent Management, Towers Watson
 
"This is the most thoughtful book on leadership I have read.  Instead of handing out the usual one-size-fits-all approach, Davis realizes that different situations require different kinds of leaders. Insightful, practical and readable, it is the best book on leadership available."
- Ford Harding, President, Harding & Company, and author of Creating Rainmakers.
 
 "... I highly recommend this book for any leader who is searching for a leadership compass to guide behaviors and adopt the practices of extraordinary leaders."
-Judd T. Nystrom, Senior Vice President, Finance, Advance Auto Parts
 
"... Davis has identified 10 intangible qualities, some of which are commonly overlooked or mistaken for other attributes, but are central to understanding why certain leaders are able to stand apart and above the rest.  His nuanced approach to a familiar subject is both timely and welcome."
- JP Donlon, Editor-in-Chief, Chief Executive Magazine
 
"Unique, insightful and practical...a refreshing take on the true essence of leadership in a contemporary time."
-Anne Duncan, VP Human Resources, JTI-Macdonald Corp.
 
"...Davis offers a career of experience in what really works in developing others - take advantage of it!"
-Andy Billings, Vice President, Profitable Creativity, Electronic Arts
