Indispensable and Unexpected Lessons from CEOs on How to Lead and Succeed
To understand leadership, watch what leading CEOs say and do.
Adam Bryant, the deputy national editor of The New York Times, interviewed 70 CEOs and other leading executives of some of the world’s most famous companies to garner back-to-basics leadership and management advice. Bryant presents the valuable lessons they’ve have learned about what works and what doesn’t work in the corporate world. He covers the criteria for business success as described by these superstars in their own words. Considering the level of the corporate luminaries in this collection, getAbstract might have expected the insights to be more brilliant and memorable, but Bryant nevertheless gleaned plenty of solid, collective knowledge from his bank of accomplished managers. getAbstract recommends Bryant’s cogent analysis of his interviews, which helps demystify executive management and shows how the best CEOs succeed.
