How did Alan Mulally - an outsider to the auto industry - lead such a spectacular turnaround at Ford? How did Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack keep his company from imploding even as Lehman Brothers collapsed? What is it that enables such extraordinary leaders to galvanize their talents and energy, as well as the talents and energy of those who work for them, to achieve superior performance no matter what challenges they face?

Rajeev Peshawaria has spent more than 20 years working alongside top executives at Fortune 500 companies and training them in leadership. He knows precisely what makes the difference between those who are simply bosses and those who are superior leaders, and between those who continue to rise to the top levels and those who get stuck along the way.

In this lively and remarkably empowering book, Peshawaria offers listeners the opportunity to experience the highest level of leadership training available in the world. Introducing the three core principles he has observed are the foundation of the best leadership - that great leaders clearly define their purpose and values; that nobody can motivate another person because everyone comes premotivated; and that a leader's job is not to directly produce results but to create the conditions that will harness the energy of others - he details his unique and proven program for achieving leadership excellence.
