Too often executives allow their functional roles to define who they are as leaders. Instead, they should focus on the type of leader they want to be, and let that knowledge guide deliberate choices and actions – to lead with intention. Hall argues that this is the most overlooked skill for those at the top, and often is the differentiator of great leadership and a source of long-term competitive advantage. She offers real world examples and a prescriptive plan for choosing your actions with care and discipline, day by day, moment by moment.
