Karen has brought together a powerful collection of tools, competency models, exercises, and training necessary for developing leaders in today's workplace. I recommend this book for anyone who is implementing a leadership development program within their organization. It could easily be used to build the entire program from scratch."—Louis Carter, CEO, Best Practice Institute "What a gem of a book Karen Lawson has written! Drawing on research by leadership gurus, Karen presents 45 competencies and characteristics critical to leadership excellence. She mines each of these facets for a solid definition and the significance of each. Although many authors shy away from discussing leadership qualities such as authenticity and empathy, Karen deals with them directly. She presents activities that future leaders can use to explore personal leadership qualities. This book is 24kt gold. If you are a leadership development professional, this book is sure to become your gold standard when searching for creative yet practical ways to help develop others into outstanding leaders of the future."—Elaine Biech, editor, The ASTD Leadership Handbook and author, The Business of Consulting "Developing the complex skills of leadership is critical for personal and organizational success.
