Here’s a hearty Leadership Freak welcome to Norm Smallwood and Dave Ulrich co-founders of the RBL Group,  guest bloggers for Leadership Freak.  What follows is a tight, information packed, synopsis of five leadership books they have written.  Thanks guys and everyone fasten your seat belts!

1.  Leadership is more than individual, psychological competencies; it’s delivering results. When we ask people “what makes an effective leader?” Their responses include: sets a vision, has emotional intelligence, exercises judgment, makes thing happen, communicates well, and so forth. However, attributes are only half of what makes an effective leader.  An effective leadership formula is leadership = attributes * results.
