This audiobook reveals the three most important capabilities leaders must demonstrate today: the ability to set strategy, empathize with others, and take risks - all at the same time.
In Head, Heart, and Guts, leadership experts David Dotlich, Peter Cairo, and Stephen Rhinesmith - who teach and coach CEOs and executive teams throughout the world - argue that to be successful in a complex, matrixed, fast-moving world, "whole" leaders must set strategy, develop trusting relationships with others, and consistently do the right thing based on personal values. "Partial" leaders, often the product of traditional executive programs, may be successful in the short run, but their companies lose over time. Filled with case studies of companies such as Bank of America, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, and UBS, Head, Heart, and Guts lays out specific steps and actions for leaders who want to grow beyond their "leadership comfort zone" and an action plan for companies that want to move beyond tried-and-true leadership development in order to develop "whole" leaders throughout their leadership pipeline.

The antidote to navigating turbulent times isn't more rules. It is timeless virtue that creates sustainable value.
Thoughtful leaders are keenly aware of the enormous challenge they face to drive high performance in a world that continues to ratchet up pressure and uncertainty. Some leaders respond by getting tough and establishing strict rules. They get people in line, but they don't inspire excellence. Wise leaders, on the other hand, help their people practice character to navigate their way through the turbulence - without lowering performance expectations. As a result, their people are more reliable under pressure.
Exception to the Rule links ancient wisdom with contemporary science on high performance, teamwork, and engagement. Building an organizational culture based on classical virtues - of trust, compassion, courage, justice, wisdom, temperance, and hope - is both strategically smart and a better way to live.
Exception to the Rule walks you through the steps of helping everyone in your organization focus on character defined by virtue. The word virtue means excellence, which is why each one is essential to help people perform at a high level despite uncertainty and pressure. Under character-based leadership, teams work better together, creativity flourishes and engagement increases.
The most powerful idea of Exception to the Rule is this: character defined by virtue is not based on birthright; it can be learned and practiced. Everyone can develop habits to become better than they were. While character cannot be legislated, character can be cultivated.
