Results-Based Leadership

I have recently started reading the book Results-Based Leadership by Dave Ulrich, Jack Zenger, and Norm Smallwood. Thus far, I've really enjoyed the book.

The main point is that the measure of an effective leader can be found in this simple equation: Effective leadership = attributes x results. I agree.

Many leaders are so focused on results that they forget about taking care of the key stakeholders (customers, employees, organization, and investors). Relationships become unimportant and the achieved success will only be temporary. On the other hand, if you focus too much on attributes and relationships, your company will not produce the results necessary to be long-lasting.
