  • Md Arif Mahmood. Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, Downstream Business, PETRONAS
    "The author translates a well researched work on the topic of strategic leadership and his experiences into a practical and comprehensive guide on what it takes to lead and transform an organization to a higher and sustainable level of success. The concept of profits as an outcome rather than goal is a breath of fresh air where value and conscience are considered as essential elements to lead a successful organization. The book also warned the pitfalls including areas where leaders themselves need to change if they want their efforts to be truly successful. Through the Strategic Leadership Competency Model, the author essentially provides a set of comprehensive checklists, if followed closely will ensure the success of a leader in leading an organization."
