Being a leader requires much more than just understanding how to run a business. Today's executive is under a unique set of demands, coming from multiple stakeholders. In The Complete Executive, long-time executive coach Karen Wright introduces a unique 10-step system that takes all of these aspects of leadership development into account. Leaders not only need incredible physical energy and stamina, they need a support system, philosophy, plan, business acumen, a social network, and a brand and reputation that will ensure they achieve their vision. Backed by an assessment tool, giving each leader a personal "report card," this book provides aspiring leaders with a framework to address all aspects of leadership that translates to peak performance. Wright knows from experience that even when everything is going well for leaders, high achievers don't stop there, which is why The Complete Executive is designed as a resource to return to again and again for continuous improvement.

Editorial Reviews

"Karen Wright delivers a fun, compact, and relevant guide for the "everyday executive" to become the "complete executive". Her refreshing style and practical recommendations keep the reader focused on their day job, while easily improving their leadership skills in real-time. Finally, a can-do book that gives executives a chance to integrate a triple-bottom line approach (work, life, and making a difference in people's lives), bringing leadership standards up to where they need to be in the 21st century. This book is a new starting point for executive transformation and will drive a revolution in North America's boardrooms!"
