“The new book, How To Be Exceptional:
Although their previous best-selling book, The Extraordinary Leader, was used as a guideline for the workshop, co-author Bob Sherwin stated “How to Be Exceptional is a big improvement over the old book. It has new and updated research that is more focused on building strengths. The new book follows the workshop more closely, and provides additional content on creating sustainability after the workshop.”
The recent reviews of the book all agree that this resource has made a significant impact on development for all participants:
“In my 35 plus years of studying, applying, writing about, and providing leadership development programs and services, Zenger Folkman's approaches are a much-needed revolution,”
“A fitting capstone to Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman’s previous works, the new book provides readers with organizational gold,” said David K. Williams, CEO of Fishbowl. “It brings forth data … to illustrate what happens to teams and organizations when we uplift and grow their participants, and when we truly strengthen executives’ abilities to lead.”
Although discovering strengths is a logical beginning step, this book helps readers pick up where all the other books leave off. It helps them take their strengths and develop them into distinguishing factors that help them make high contributions to their organizations.
