This leadership guide leaves the philosophizing aside and focuses on the mechanics of managerial efficacy. McKinsey & Company alum Shu Hattori lays out basic and best practices culled from his days at “the Firm.” His manual offers guidance for getting ahead, improving communication, increasing productivity and overdelivering in your personal and professional life. Each of the 47 principles seems simple by itself, but taken together these nuggets provide an excellent framework for growth. getAbstract recommends Shu’s something-for-everyone compendium as a fundamental addition to your leadership development library.
In this summary, you will learn
- What leadership philosophy McKinsey & Company consultants follow;
- What best practices McKinsey suggests for managing clients, solving problems, leading teams and getting ahead; and
- How to apply these strategies to your career.
