When it comes to corporate leadership, the standard for performance has to be greatness simply because of the leverage inherent in the leadership role.  If the leaders are mediocre, how can the organization ever be great?  

Corporate leaders need to be great in specific ways that enable everyone else in the organization to be great.  Achieving this type of greatness requires you to think and act at the systems level, the essence of being a strategic asset to the firm.  Making this shift to the systems level is the key to attaining the vision and skills needed to identify, align, and link the essential parts of your organization to work interdependently as a high-performing whole instead of an under-performing heap – as a star team instead of a team of stars.  By actively participating in this course, you will make this shift and unlock your greatness as a corporate leader. 

This course is the result of nearly 70 years of practice, theory, and research covering sustainable value creation achieved by leading and managing at the systems level.  The creator of this course has woven together 30 principles, theories, and models into a breakthrough management system proven to produce effective actions and extraordinary results.  If you aspire to build and manage great places for employees to work, great places for customers to buy, and great places for shareholders to invest, this course is for you.
