In this fascinating new book, entrepreneur and business consultant Eric Douglas draws on his work with large and small corporations, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations to share a powerful equation:

Trust + Spark = Leadership Culture

The equation boils down a simple but profound truth: highly effective leaders focus on building trust and generating innovation (spark). In The Leadership Equation, Douglas expands the equation into a Grand Theory of Organizational Excellence, consisting of five trust practices and five spark practices.


A Summary of the Ten Key Practices

Practice #1: Align the Core Values

Practice #2: Sharpen the Focus

Practice #3: Lead Through Others

Practice #4: Manage Decisions Well

Practice #5: Start With Yourself

Practice #6: Accelerate the Pace of Change

Practice #7: Stimulate Creative Flow

Practice #8: Spread Systems Thinking

Practice #9: Multiply the Communication

Practice #10: Ask Powerful Questions

As the author shares these practices, he reveals both the fundamental systems at work in high-performing companies and the specific day-to-day things that 21st-century leaders must do to sustain high levels of success. As Douglas clearly shows, when trust and spark combine in the leadership equation, leaders improve the performance of their team, their business unit, and the entire organization and, ultimately, reach their own full potential.
