Functional expertise is the price of entry for executives in today's world. Creating the environment, however, where talented, engaged employees have passion, drive, and the ability to proactively shape a company's success goes far beyond functional expertise. In this day and age, to excel in a leadership role and display real value to an organization, executives must become adept at mobilizing human energy, shaping culture, and leading change. The individuals who master these skills, who are capable of tapping into employees' discretionary effort to drive productivity levels and bottom-line results, will distinguish themselves as top-tier leaders.
