Leading with Edge

As leaders, we have a lot on our minds—from keeping our customers happy and managing legal and compliance issues to keeping our eyes on the bottom line. How to truly get the best out of people is not something we are typically taught in business school.

It’s time that we, as leaders, give the skill of leadership the same focus we would any other aspect of the job and teach others in our organization, the leaders coming up behind us, how to do the same.

To lead with edge is to accept leadership as a practice—as a vocation in which one is dedicated to lifelong learning, diligence and patience. In Leading With Edge, Jose R. Costa invites you to acknowledge the tenacity and courage it takes to be a good leader. With insightful examples from his own career, Costa offers guiding principles to help budding and experienced leaders alike to prioritize impactful work.
