Executive Intelligence: What All Great Leaders Have investigates the findings of a psychological researcher with the works of Peter S. Drucker and Jim Collins to delve into the primary requirements for executives with the potential for greatness.
The result is an amalgam of the intricacies of executive intelligence and all that entails. Focusing on the difference between knowledge and intelligence proves fascinating in that the accepted theory that intelligence is more vital to success than knowledge is repudiated by real life examples that totally contradict that supposition. Also included is information regarding the questionable accuracy of traditional IQ tests on the true ability of test takers to actually perform in executive positions.
There is also an indispensable chapter on developing executive intelligence which emphasizes training with a scenario that improves the cognitive skills dealing with the probable effects of certain actions and the resulting probable reactions.
Executive Intelligence is a helpful guide to deciphering the qualities needed to lead in the executive world. It gives insight into how to develop those qualities that you lack and acquire those that you do not currently have.
This book is helpful in determining your natural ability to lead your own business to success and whether or not an executive position is compatible with your personality, which makes this a valuable resource in evaluating your current standing or future success as an executive.
