That’s opposed to being a “nonstick” – or “Teflon” – leader who suffers high turnover and low returns. Matuson doesn’t present very much that’s new – beyond fresh examples of real-life magnetic leaders – but provides a tidy, useful compendium of leadership wisdom. getAbstract recommends her pragmatic advice to leaders in general and particularly to managers in charge of hiring.
In this summary, you will learn
- How “magnetic leaders” attract and retain talent,
