Your innate personal or behavioral style enables you to be masterful in leading some organizational processes, while limiting your effectiveness in other areas. Leadership Your Way lets you zero in on your own, unique personal style in order to identify the ten fundamental organizational processes that all great organizations require to be successful.
Leadership Your Way gives you customized coaching tips around these "missing or weak processes”-- keeping in mind that, to be an effective leader you only need to ensure that ten basic organizational processes are present, you do not have to lead or manage these processes yourself.
In short, you play the hand you’ve been dealt . . . and win.

The author focuses on trying to work effectively with your personality type. He assumes (correctly, for most of us) that we are not going to change decades of personality traits based on reading a book.
