Book Description

March 1 1993
What distinguishes leaders from ordinary managers? The authors present three distinct philosophies of leadership - political, directive, and values-driven - advocating each in turn to challenge the reader's own assumptions. Through extensive interviews with executives, the authors show how leaders who hold certain prejudices or predispositions can resolve classic managerial dilemmas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lessons for the Aspiring Manager April 13 2002
Format:Hardcover
Although this book was originally published in 1989, its lessons are equally applicable to the modern-day business world.
In my mind, three principles stood out:
1) The importance of clear and concise communication to subordinates
2) The importance of being unconstrained by rigid rules and organizational norms, in preference of overriding principles and prejudices
3) The importance of leading for the long-term, rather than being motivated by short-term gain

4.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and important Jan. 19 2014
By Abhishek K. Gupta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The author lays the imperative for consistency and coherence between organizational aims, personal values, and individual actions as the founding ground for integrity. The book not only stimulates thinking on very real conflicting issues that have no clear answers but also presents new frameworks against which one can hone one's ability to decipher organizational complications. Especially, when one is striving to make effective and meaningful progress on multiple dimensions.
