“Knowing when and how to select leaders is equally important. Most organizations wait too long to choose the new person, and often give the position to someone from outside the company. In effective organizations, however, good leaders are grown not imported, and the selection is not based on personality or an arbitrary set of standards. Promoting Ivy League high-flyers with MBAs and intellect doesn’t work unless they are both willing and able to get things done. To truly understand performance; to see it as results not activity; to give it clear definition and differentiation; to eliminate the many leadership positions that are artificially created and not needed; and to measure performance, not potential, is the task of today’s leaders.”
