Leadership Pq: How Political Intelligence Sets Successful Leaders Apart Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

IQ and EQ are not enough for leaders to be effective. Political Intelligence (PQ) — the capability to interact strategically in a world where government and business share power — is critical in determining the success of large organizations. Traditionally, large businesses have relied on public affairs specialists to help them lobby government, and in turn, government has banked on occasional business professionals to guide them. This outdated model cannot cope with the challenge of increasing inter-dependency, and PQ as a leadership requirement allows governments and businesses to build relationships and work together more easily.

Leadership PQ explains why PQ is now a critical leadership requirement and presents case studies to demonstrate the impact of PQ in action. It highlights international leaders who can make things happen in a complex world, where no one individual, company, government, country or international organization can make progress alone. Including a self-assessment tool, this book explains leadership theory in a grounded and practical way that takes full account of the complexities and challenges of real life.
