What constitutes effective leadership performance? What results should good leadership produce? Today the expectations of leadership are often misguided. In today’s economic environment, it's not enough to simply build a company full of people with leadership skills. These leadership skills need to be applied to the right results. These results must be differentiated by layer with specific measures established in writing. You can give to your leaders an advantage over the competition by providing clarity and focus at every level.

Based on forty years of in-depth work with over one hundred companies, The Performance Pipeline: Getting the Right Performance at Every Level of Leadership (Wiley; September 2011; 978-0-470-87728-9; $29.95) defines the results and measurements required at each leadership layer to make the leader, the business and the enterprise successful. From Stephen Drotter, coauthor of The Leadership Pipeline, this timely and groundbreaking book helps leaders at every level succeed in an uncertain business environment. It also defines what leaders must pass down to the leaders in lower layers to make them successful. The chronic problem of leaders working at the wrong level after a promotion is addressed through a well-tested model for transitioning to the new layer.

In The Performance Pipeline, Stephen Drotter, CEO of Drotter Human resources, utilizes the same formula for cultivating the best leaders possible that made The Leadership Pipeline a bestseller. Specifically, this book is:
  • Filled with lessons and examples from the author's 40 years of experience
  • Shows how to set performance standards, make sure the right work is being done, and remove performance barriers
  • Illustrates how leaders can make the transition to the next level and achieve full performance

Companies of all sizes in any industry will learn how to define and install their own Performance Pipeline to obtain the benefits of role clarity and sharp focus for all leaders. Illustrated with personal experiences and examples of Performance Pipelines actually in use, the framework is easy to understand and apply. The Performance Pipeline digs deep into the real work of executing business results at each leadership layer. This book shows companies how to focus on performance to improve capability rather than development.
