Given the reality of the modern world, business schools and management training programs should offer a class called: "Business Savvy 101: An Overview of Hidden Agendas, Power Struggles and Other Leadership Challenges." Fortunately, Ram Charan offers a tutorial on that subject in this book. He provides excellent insights for aspiring executives and current leaders. Although parts of the text are repetitive, that fault is far outweighed by the value of Charan's concrete examples from brand-name companies. getAbstract recommends this book to readers at all levels of management who want to sharpen their leadership skills.
