High‐performing leaders are those who can effectively deal with the complexities of modern business. They can respond quickly to change, deal with ambiguity, provide direction, manage around constraints, and leverage the commitment and intellectual capital of the people around them. When this capability is cultivated across an organization, it creates a distinct performance environment that enables the organization to adapt, innovate, and ultimately win and sustain competitive advantage.
