When leaders lack solutions to challenging problems, they need brave subordinates, clients or vendors who will challenge them and help them think in a fresh way. Wharton Business School professor Michael Useem calls this process “leading up.” He defines “upward leadership” and provides a range of historic examples – some very compelling, others maybe less so – drawn from the worlds of the military, business, politics and religion. getAbstract recommends his in-depth report to leaders and upcoming leaders, especially those who love history.
