High-Stakes Leadership

by Mike Hunter

What makes some leaders so effective when the stakes are high, while others fall short? Why are some able to not only survive but to lead their organizations to new heights even in risky, fast-changing times? The answer is succinct but multi-layered: Such leaders display courage, judgment and fortitude.

High-stakes leadership does not require unnatural powers, nor is it predicated on a dangerous situation. The three signature character traits can be cultivated by anyone at any level in any organization, big or small. Organizational and leadership consultant Constance Dierickx describes high-stakes leadership in a simple, three-part model that illuminates the mindsets, strategies and tactics leaders must draw upon to make tough decisions, take an unpopular stand or ignore convention, providing real-world examples across a range of sectors and industries.
