In The Real Work of Leaders, Don Laurie digs beneath the surface to explore the "act of leadership," the essence of what leaders need to do on a daily basis to frame challenges, mobilize people, and adapt to constant change. Based on fifteen years' experience advising dozens of the world's most progressive and influential business leaders, including Lew Platt of Hewlett-Packard and Ralph Larsen of Johnson and Johnson, The Real Work of Leaders offers a fresh and energizing perspective on the craft of leadership.
A powerful new approach to leadership-the art of challenging assumptions, managing competing values, and building trust in unpredictable times.
