Presents a new model of leadership consisting of three components and nine principles. In summary, these are: anticipate (detecting weak signals, developing mental agility, and freeing up resources); align (leading through embodiment, task through relationship, and creating cultures that can act); and act (80:20 leadership; ready-fire-aim; and dogged pursuit…and knowing when to stop). The authors explore these elements in detail. Each chapter starts with a parable which highlights some issues or problems facing leadership followed by discussion and illustrations relating to real-life examples. Chapters end with tools to help develop and employ the ideas and concepts of the chapter. The material flows very well and the writing is clear. The basic model is insightful. 226 pp. 2002.
