In The Leadership Test, Dr. Clark takes a different approach and unveils a short narrative for leaders everywhere, addressing the character and stewardship aspects of leadership. He draws on his wide experience working with leaders in business, government, education, healthcare, and the non-profit sector to explain fundamental concepts of leadership, including influence, intent, and stewardship.
Glenda Shelby, vice president of Human Resources and Diversity at Accor Hospitality, calls The Leadership Test, “an instant classic and packed with gold nuggets.” And Sharlene Hawkes, Chief Marketing Officer at Storyrock, describes The Leadership Test as “beautifully succinct, and packs a life-changing punch.” Finally, Christopher Germann, vice president, Gartner, Inc. calls the book “simple, elegant, and profound. A short enough read to keep a busy exec’s attention, but meaningful enough to invoke personal inventory.”
The reader is introduced to Isadore Kroll, an eccentric high school teacher who teaches history in a tough section of Chicago. As the story unfolds, Izzy, as he is called, mentors his former student, Marcus, in the first lessons of leadership, helping him navigate through the real world of egos, agendas, and ethical dilemmas.
A call to action for all leaders, The Leadership Test is a quick and powerful read that will motivate leaders at every level to reflect on their intent and influence. The book concludes a self-assessment "Leadership Test" based on the five critical elements imperatives:
1. Fill Your Pack.
2. Sign Your Name.
