John P Kotter on What Leaders Really Do (Harvard Business Review) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Widely acknowledged as the world's foremost authority on leadership, John Kotter has devoted his remarkable career to studying organizations and those who run them, and his bestselling books and essays have guided and inspired leaders at all levels. Here, in this collection of his acclaimed Harvard Business Review articles, is an astute assessment of the real work of leaders, as only John Kotter can offer. To complement the HBR articles, Kotter also contributes a new piece, a thoughtful reflection on the themes that have developed throughout his work. Convinced that most organizations today lack the leadership they need, Kotter's mission is to help us better understand what leaders--real leaders--do. True leadership, he reminds us, is an elusive quality, and too often we confuse management duties and personal style with leadership, or even mistake unworthy leaders for the real thing. Yet without leadership, organizations move too slowly, stagnate, and lose their way. With John Kotter on What Leaders Really Do, readers will learn how to become more effective leaders as they explore pressing issues such as power, influence, dependence, and strategies for change.

Book News Annotation:

Kotter (leadership, Harvard Business School) offers an assessment of the real work of leaders, in this collection of Harvard Business Review articles first written between 1979 and 1997. The articles deal with challenges in managerial work and what differentiates effective from ineffective responses to these challenges, and they examine issues of leadership and change, coping with dependence, and webs of interaction. In a new introduction he reflects on themes that have developed throughout his work.
