The Leadership Capital Index

The Leadership Capital Index

In this book leading scholar, author, and consultant Dave Ulrich provides a leadership capital index a thorough way of assessing how the quality of a company's leadership impacts its value (e.g like a Moody's index for leadership). Drawing on ten years of work Ulrich finally offers an alternative to the instinctive and subjective approaches people have been forced to take in the past. In successive chapters, Ulrich develops multiple dimensions of this leadership capital index, including leaders' personal abilities (their personal proficiency, strategic proficiency, execution proficiency, people proficiency, and leadership brand proficiency) and organizational leadership capabilities (cultural capability, talent management, performance accountability, information management systems, and work process). The result is a ground breaking book that opens up a major new area of understanding and analysis of business and leadership. Everyone agrees that much of the success of any company depends on the quality of its leadership. Yet there is has been no rigorous, comprehensive way of rating leadership quality as it relates to company market value until now.

Leadership Reconsidered

Leadership Reconsidered

While books and articles on leadership abound, most of them are written by "successful" men who look at the world through the lens of a Western business model. The standard for success is based on the bottom line--financial growth in both the personal and corporate realms. This perspective has infected Christian leadership literature as well. In Leadership Reconsidered, Ruth A. Tucker calls for a revised definition--one that abandons the love of power and success for the eternal value of legacy. She challenges the assumption that a leader must by definition have followers, be an extrovert, crave recognition, and dominate others. Instead, legacy encompasses the values of behind-the-scenes influence that are available to everyone and last beyond the grave. This unique and refreshing perspective on leadership is accessible and engaging and will make an impact on anyone who takes it to heart.

Leadership

Leadership

This monograph forms part of the Indochina Monograph series written by senior military personnel from the former Army of the Republic of Vietnam who served against the northern communist invasion. War and politics posed many challenges to South Vietnam’s military leadership. Unlike his counterpart in some countries, the Vietnamese military commander was not simply a leader of men in combat. Depending on the level of command, he had to play his part in national politics, be himself a grass roots politician, or engage in political warfare. To achieve success, he was often expected to possess several qualities not always required of a professional military leader. The requirements of leadership, therefore, sometimes transcended the conventional framework of accepted rules and principles. Given these requirements and the fallibility of human nature, it had not always been easy to evaluate the total performance of our leadership. The dilemma we faced was that while professional competence during actual combat was a critical criteria, we could not tolerate deliberate aberrations in moral and social codes. In my analysis of the successes and failures of our leadership, I have endeavored to be fair and objective. If I seem to be laudatory of some officers while critical of others, it is not my intention to embarrass any individual. Performance has been the sole basis for all of my evaluations.
