Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

Companies need High Potential leaders (Hi-Po’s) more than ever before to help them adapt to todays tumultuous, digitally-driven business environment. If you meet the Hi-Po criteria, you're in high demand—and this book explains how to fast-track yourself.

Criteria for Hi-Pos are changing markedly. In the past, fast-track leaders were tapped mainly because of their cognitive abilities, analytical skills, imagination, thoroughness in finding solutions and even perfectionist tendencies. In the new climate, other attributes will count more heavily: relationship skills, experience, judgment, abilities to engage, motivate, and draw out the best performance in others, strategic skills and even personal habits and behavior style. Above all, companies see Hi-Pos as people who have the capacity to grow quickly and step into new leadership roles competently. This book is a step by step guide to becoming a high potential leader.

This hands-on guidebook contains:
• Practical advice and checklists in every chapter for making daily progress toward running a large team, business unit, or company
• A framework for deciding when and how to make job changes that speed development
• Firsthand examples and lessons learned from top leaders around the world in a variety of industries


"If you are a high-potential leader, or want to become one, this is the book for you." —Laszlo Bock, Senior Advisor and Former SVP of People Operations, Google FAST-TRACK YOURSELF "In this book, Ram provides practical advice on how high-potential leaders can help their businesses thrive in the digital age, and accelerate their own growth."
—Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company

"Ram Charan shows again why he is one of the leading business coaches in the world. This book allows young leaders to benefit from the insider's perspective Ram has accumulated throughout his career working with top CEO's."
—Dave Ulrich, Rensis Likert Professor, Ross School of Business, University of Michigan; Partner, The RBL Group

"Ram Charan has developed invaluable checklists and practical tools for expanding leadership productivity, thinking ahead, and acting decisively. This is the book for High Potentials."
—Michael Useem, Professor of Management and Director of the Wharton Leadership Center at the University of Pennsylvania
