Failure is treated unfairly. Professor of management Laurence G. Weinzimmer and business consultant Jim McConoughey discuss leadership failure and its repercussions as reflected in published research, a survey of managers and interviews with business leaders. Their guide to learning from failure is entertaining and insightful, though it does not set out to plow new ground. getAbstract recommends this basic, easy-to-read manual to leaders and managers who want to understand what worked in the past, what did not and why, so they can benefit from their failures.
