Inside the Book:
Title: Leadership DNA
Author: Paul Okum
Genre: Political Science
The root cause of this leadership vacuum is that leadership gurus firmly believe, teach, and preach that anyone can be “made” into a leader with the right training, personal desire, and commitment. With this premise, they’ve approached leadership as a commonplace and elementary skill that anyone can learn. There’s just one problem: they’re wrong.
In this guidebook on leadership, you’ll learn about all aspects of leadership, including:
how to look past personality profiles, leadership models, and traditional assessment tools to grasp what makes a great leader;
how to identify and select natural born leaders to achieve your objectives;
how to deal with poor leaders who hurt you and your organization.
Leadership DNA examines the false premise that anyone can be a leader and provides insights and tools that lead to a better system of identifying, selecting, and developing born leaders.
