For the past two years, Heidrick & Struggles has partnered with Professor Andrew Kakabadse, of Henley Business School in the United Kingdom, on a global study taking in 100 face-to-face interviews with chairmen, directors, chief executives, and senior executives to test business models against current realities.

The product of that research, The Success Formula: How Smart Leaders Deliver Outstanding Value, argues that the odds of success increase dramatically when organizational capabilities are focused and developed through leadership processes that center on seven disciplines: Evidence, mission, alignment, engagement, leadership, governance, and wisdom.

This article summarizes the seven disciplines, and underscores the new mind-set that senior executives must adopt if they are to move beyond a shortsighted focus on value proposition and toward a form and style of leadership that centers on value delivery.
