Leaders transform organizations. The impact of their success can be felt in the growth and continuity an organization experiences under their leadership or the rapid consequences of their poor leadership. The Knowledge, Skills and Attributes (KSAs) needed to thrive as a Leader are unique to the circumstances they face and vary from what made them successful as Individual Contributors and Managers. What Roles, when consistently utilized, lead to effectiveness as a Leader? What Practices and Behaviors must a Leader develop over time to fulfill the most critical Roles?

These questions have never been answered in the way that KSAL (Knowledge, Skills, and Attributes of Leaders) provides. The KSAL framework is easy to understand, easy to use and born from 100 years of experience in talent management by its authors, and 50 years of research. Practitioners are provided with a reliable resource to find, hire, grow, develop, deploy, promote, give feedback and support teamwork for Leaders. Most importantly, KSAL is instantly applicable to Leaders across all organizations through the following Talent Tools.
