leadership
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In this illuminating study of corporate America's most critical issue -- leadership -- world-renowned leadership guru Warren Bennis and his co-author Burt Nanus reveal the four key principles every manager should know: Attention Through Vision, Meaning Through Communication, Trust Through Positioning, and The Deployment of Self.

In this age of "process", with downsizing and restructuring affecting many workplaces, companies have fallen trap to lack of communication and distrust, and vision and leadership are needed more than ever before. The wisdom and insight in Leaders addresses this need. It is an indispensable source of guidance all readers will appreciate, whether they're running a small department or in charge of an entire corporation.

Reviews

The authors included a number of observations that are thought-provoking for Christian readers. Here is a sample: . . . The higher the leadership post, 'the more interpersonal and human the undertaking.' The authors discovered that the top executives they interviewed spent roughly 90 percent of their time with people and virtually the same percentage of their time concerned with 'the messiness of people problems.' Leadership, that is, has to do with enabling others to fulfill their full humanness better.

—Christianity Today


"...has a great deal to say to any executive who, by being a 'manager,' has the responsibility to take on leadership as well."
—Peter Drucker
