Bestselling author Dr. Vince Molinaro’s third edition of “The Leadership Contract” and all-new “The Leadership Contract Field Guide” aims to remedy the leadership accountability gap by putting accountability at the heart of leadership development and providing a practical and actionable tool to achieve results.
MAITLAND, FL – April 25, 2018: Lee Hecht Harrison, the world’s leading talent development and transition company, is pleased to announce the release of "The Leadership Contract Field Guide" and the third edition of New York Times bestseller, "The Leadership Contract: The Fine Print to Becoming an Accountable Leader," published by John Wiley & Sons and written by Vince Molinaro, Ph.D., Global Managing Director, Leadership Transformation at LHH and an influential thought leader on the topic of leadership accountability.
“The Field Guide makes the ideas in The Leadership Contract immediately practical and actionable for leaders at all levels of an organization,” said Molinaro. “The research we’ve conducted over the last year at LHH shows that, around the globe, 72% of management at large organizations believe that leadership accountability is a critical issue, but only 31% are satisfied with their current level of accountability. That gap is what The Leadership Contract and now the Field Guide are designed to address.”
“We know it’s important to close the gap,” continues Molinaro, “because our research also shows that a key difference between industry leaders and also-rans is that the leaders are much closer to closing the gap than the also-rans. As I’ve spoken to and worked with organizations around the world, I’ve seen that leadership accountability directly translates into growth, profit, and sector dominance.”
Ranjit de Sousa, President of LHH, said, “Despite considerable ongoing investment in leadership development, there is a demonstrable accountability gap between what is expected of leaders and how they are currently performing. At the core of our mission is building better careers, businesses and leaders. Our global leadership accountability practice helps organizations improve the accountability of their senior leaders and teams, bridging the gap between expectations and current performance.”
"The Leadership Contract Field Guide" shows leaders how to review the major tenets of great leadership, internalize them, and then take stock of their own organizations. It helps leaders identify where there are clear deficits and where they need most to work to achieve their full potential.
Molinaro says, “Leadership is a privilege and a responsibility, and this field guide shows how to move from thinking about great leadership to practicing great leadership. It provides a practical blueprint for implementing The Leadership Contract.”
Molinaro has made it his calling to confront weak leadership. He shows leaders at all levels how to step up and fulfill their obligations and responsibilities as real leaders. As a forceful keynote speaker at conferences and corporate retreats around the world, he translates first-hand experiences from the leadership trenches into practical advice on how leaders can confront and overcome their challenges and build strong leadership cultures.
