On the heels of Top 10 Business Book honors from The Globe and Mail, How to Be Exceptional has just received a new honor. How to Be Exceptional is one of Soundview's Top 30 Business Books for 2013.
Soundview has a pristine reputation for publishing the best executive book summaries since 1978. More than half a million subscribers gain the essential information from the best business books of the year from Soundview Executive Book Summaries.
"We are pleased to once again have this honor from Soundview," said Jack Zenger, co-author of How to Be Exceptional. "This book has struck a chord with readers everywhere because it has helped them understand that the next step to becoming a great leader is not just finding your strengths, but building upon them."
In conjunction with the award, authors Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman will be presenting a live webinar on Jan. 30th. In this Soundview webinar, How to Be Exceptional, the leadership gurus of Zenger Folkman will provide a fresh, innovative approach to leadership development. Participants will learn:
- Why focusing on strengths is far more effective than a preoccupation with fixing weaknesses
- How building strengths greatly differs from correcting weaknesses
- Ways to better utilize feedback and action-learning on the job to elevate their strengths
- Zenger Folkman's revolutionary "cross-training" method to catapult their leadership competencies into the top 90th percentile
Soundview's editors stated: "Citing the kind of extensive research for which Zenger Folkman is famous, the authors prove that for every leadership competency developed, there are several significant related behaviors that enhance leadership effectiveness. In How to Be Exceptional, they offer a fresh new direction and concrete techniques for growing the full spectrum of your leadership strengths."
