Acuity is a framework that brings together the best management practices and competencies from around the work into one single system.  

It consists of four intelligences: Leadership Intelligence, Emotional Intelligence, Rational Intelligence and Financial Intelligence. 

Leadership intelligence is about managing yourself - if you cannot lead yourself you cannot lead others. Emotional intelligence is about managing people and teams, whereas rational intelligence is about managing ideas and financial intelligence is about managing money.

What you will find in this book is how this compilation of the best management practices from around the world can apply to you and help you build your career successfully.  

Some of these you may already know. But the framework is what is important here. You will be able to measure your own leadership, emotional, rational and indeed your financial intelligence by the time you’ve completed the book.  To help you do that there is a one-page test at the end of the book.

You will enjoy the journey exploring the acuity framework and see exactly how you can discover your strengths and how to leverage them .  You’ll learn new management skills and the experience will help you grow as a manager and a leader.
