Become a leader worth following by using the proven, evidence-based methods of the widely respected, global leadership firm Linkage, Inc. and leadership development expert Mark Hannum

The world’s greatest leaders focus on three critical things: they are committed to accomplishing something that matters; they articulate a vision that others embrace; and they demonstrate a series of five commitments that make up the message of this book.

In Become, Mark Hannum, a leading Executive Coach, Consultant, Practitioner and Researcher in the leadership field, reveals the evidence-based secrets that surfaced from vast data Linkage has collected  on leadership effectiveness. He details the five commitments that the best leaders make to themselves and their organizations: 

INSPIRE others to join the pursuit of a common vision
ENGAGE every team member to contribute their best abilities
INNOVATE key products or processes that lead to the goal
ACHIEVE results by organizing people and aligning resources
