It compares blatantly how statistics differ to a huge margin between how people perceive their leaders and how leaders perceive themselves. As opposed to the popular conventional wisdom of having hard skills like technical expertise and subject area knowledge to be great leaders, the book mentions 3 soft skills of- Mindfulness, Selflessness, and Compassion- as crucial traits for leaders to give people any real meaning, drive engagement, and motivate them to perform at their optimum level.

Once leaders become adept in these skills, they become better leaders. They, then start a top-down transformation initiative of passing on these skills to their people who too become better, and they together push and accelerate an organization to reach its success zenith.
