"We are pleased to once again have this honor from Soundview," said Jack Zenger, co-author of How to Be Exceptional. "This book has struck a chord with readers everywhere because it has helped them understand that the next step to becoming a great leader is not just finding your strengths, but building upon them."

In conjunction with the award, authors Jack Zenger and Joe Folkman will be presenting a live webinar on Jan. 30th.  In this Soundview webinar, How to Be Exceptional, the leadership gurus of Zenger Folkman will provide a fresh, innovative approach to leadership development. Participants will learn:

  • Why focusing on strengths is far more effective than a preoccupation with fixing weaknesses

  • Ways to better utilize feedback and action-learning on the job to elevate their strengths
  • Zenger Folkman's revolutionary "cross-training" method to catapult their leadership competencies into the top 90th percentile
