"Superbosses is the rare business book that is chock full of new, useful, and often unexpected ideas. After you read Finkelstein's well-crafted gem, you will never go about leading, evaluating, and developing talent in quite the same way."-Robert Sutton, author of Scaling Up Excellence and The No Asshole Rule "Maybe you're a decent boss. But are you a superboss? That's the question you'll be asking yourself after reading Sydney Finkelstein's fascinating book. By revealing the secrets of superbosses from finance to fashion and from cooking to comic books, Finkelstein offers a smart, actionable playbook for anyone trying to become a better leader."-Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive A fascinating exploration of the world's most effective bosses-and how they motivate, inspire, and enable others to advance their companies and shape entire industries, by the author of How Smart Executives Fail. A must-read for anyone interested in leadership and building an enduring pipeline of talent. What do football coach Bill Walsh, restauranteur Alice Waters, television executive Lorne Michaels, technol­ogy CEO Larry Ellison, and fashion pioneer Ralph Lauren have in common? On the surface, not much, other than consistent success in their fields. But below the surface, they share a common approach to finding, nurturing, leading, and even letting go of great people. The way they deal with talent makes them not merely success stories, not merely organization builders, but what Sydney Finkelstein calls superbosses. After ten years of research and more than two hundred interviews, Finkelstein-an acclaimed professor at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, speaker, and executive coach and consultant-discovered that superbosses exist in nearly every industry. If you study the top fifty leaders in any field, as many as one-third will have once worked for a superboss. While superbosses differ in their personal styles, they all focus on identifying promising newcomers, inspiring their best work, and launching them into highly successful careers-while also expanding their own networks and building stronger companies. Among the practices that distinguish superbosses: They Create Master-Apprentice Relationships. Superbosses customize their coaching to what each protégé really needs, and also are constant founts of practical wisdom. Advertising legend Jay Chiat not only worked closely with each of his employees but would sometimes extend their discussions into the night. They Rely on the Cohort Effect. Superbosses strongly encourage collegiality even as they simultaneously drive internal competition. At Lorne Michaels's Saturday Night Live, writers and performers are judged by how much of their material actually gets on the air, but they can't get anything on the air without the support of their coworkers. They Say Good-Bye on Good Terms. Nobody likes it when great employees quit, but super­bosses don't respond with anger or resentment. They know that former direct reports can become highly valuable members of their network, especially as they rise to major new roles elsewhere. Julian Robertson, the billionaire hedge fund manager, continued to work with and invest in his former employees who started their own funds. By sharing the fascinating stories of superbosses and their protégés, Finkelstein explores a phenomenon that never had a name before. And he shows how each of us can emulate the best tactics of superbosses to create our own powerful networks of extraordinary talent.

The Heart of Leadership: Becoming a Leader Peop...

“The most important leadership tool you have is not your education, your experience, or your know-how. It’s your heart. In this book, Mark provides a clear prescription for using yours to become the kind of leader people want to follow.” —Michael Hyatt, New York Times bestselling author and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Inc. “Mark once again demonstrates the power of a simple story well told. The Heart of Leadership will serve leaders around the world for decades to come.” —Dr. Henry Cloud, leadership consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author of Boundaries and Necessary Endings “ The Heart of Leadership is a delightfully surprising read. Mark Miller’s wisdom shines in his ability to convey profound truths simply and clearly. This book propels leadership beyond strategies and techniques to its most authentic form—who you are.” —Dan Rockwell, author and owner of the Leadership Freak blog, consultant, and pastor “Mark Miller has crafted a masterwork. Too many books on leadership are about selfishly getting ahead. This book addresses the leader’s heart. By addressing the heart, you do get ahead, but it’s a more satisfying journey.” —Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate and CEO, Duarte Designs “This book will help you reach your leadership potential, espousing good principles that most learn only through the school of hard knocks—and many never learn at all.” —Ron Wallace, former President, UPS International “Mark Miller has done it again! Another outstanding book—this time on the most important aspect of leadership: who you are as a leader. If you focus only on skills, you are ignoring 90 percent of what makes a great leader. —Jesse Lyn Stoner, coauthor of the international bestseller Full Steam Ahead! “ The Heart of Leadership addresses the primary stumbling block for leaders – themselves!   If you want to improve how you lead others, you must first improve how you lead yourself. This great little book shows you how. —Daniel S. Harkavy, CEO and Executive Coach, Building Champions, Inc. ' The Heart of Leadership extends and deepens the bestselling leadership models pioneered by Mark Miller.  This book is clear, compelling, and of real practical value. Keep it on hand  -- a small investment of time will yield a lifetime of dividends, in life as well as career.  —Jeff Rosensweig, Associate Professor of International Business and Finance and Director of Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and Global Perspectives Program ‘There's a difference between potential leaders with raw talent and great leaders with real influence. Mark's book reveals the foundational difference -- it's all about leadership character.” —Tony Morgan, author, Chief Strategic Officer and founder of TonyMorganLive.com “Mark Miller’s The Heart of Leadership immediately creates a place for personal discovery. As I read each page, I was no longer thinking of  “Blake” the main character, but myself. Blake’s journey of discovery became my own. This is about the “life” of leadership and how it reaches within and without having profound and long-lasting impact. It’s about being unselfishly driven and highly motivated. It is about how others within the workplace and within our lives benefit from our personal resolve to lead from the perspective that others matter.” —Clifton L. Taulbert, Author of Eight Habits of the Heart and President, The Freemount Corporation/Building Community Institute “There are so many buzzwords in business that claim to be the answer to all leadership woes. The truth is that leadership is all about the people, and to have success with people, read The Heart of Leadership, and watch your leadership soar to a whole new level.” —Todd Nielsen, author and COO

Leadership is learnable A Warren Bennis Executive Briefing Series BookCrosby is taking his message to a different audience - a growing army of intelligent young men and women who are setting out to become executives by choice and for the right reasons. - Central Florida Business In this, his eleventh book, world-renowned consultant Philip Crosby offers readers a simple, yet ingenious method for assessing the skills of those they've been assigned to follow, as well as their own leadership abilities. Leaders, he says, come in five versions?Destructor, Procrastinator, Caretaker, Preparer, and Accomplisher. And by examining each of those character types in relation to his four Absolutes of Leadership, the author establishes a framework would-be leaders can use to build quality leadership skills of their own.Crosby also discusses the leader's role in organizational finance and quality, and in dealing with customers, suppliers, employees, and bosses. You know a leader when you meet one, he asserts and he maintains that those people who already have leadership potential will blossom once they understand and epitomize the precepts set forth in this groundbreaking work.
