9780470666043: The Cult of the Leader: A Manifesto for More Authentic Business

A critical look at the way that business leadership has gone so badly wrong.

Modern business is obsessed with leaders. We talk about leadership all the time, but its real meaning is becoming more and more obscure. Recent corporate crises have shown that all too often, our leaders are missing in action when we need them most. In this groundbreaking and provocative new book, Chris Bones shows how we need to:

  • Restore trust and confidence
  • Be more realistic about what leaders can and can't do
  • Redefine talent
  • Revalue experience
  • Reconsider remuneration

From the Inside Flap:

Modern business is obsessed with leaders.

Although everyone is talking about leadership, its real meaning is becoming more and more obscure. Today we define leaders in terms of how they seem, not their judgment and what they are able to do.

The result has been the failure of leadership at a time when we need all the good leaders we can find. We now face critical decisions and urgently need to rethink the role of leadership in order to make these choices well.

In The Cult of the Leader Chris Bones argues that in order to rebuild trust and confidence, we need to redefine talent, revalue experience and reconsider remuneration. Only by doing this, will we come to a realistic appreciation of what leaders can and can’t do.

This is a groundbreaking and highly provocative book.

From the Back Cover:

"Combining entertainment with breadth and depth of understanding, this book can be recommended as essential reading for every manager."
—Professor Meredith Belbin

"A captivating voyage into leadership that defines the malaise of out time."
—Sir John Madejski, Chancellor of the University of Reading

"This is a must-read and must-act upon book; a call to every business and every investor to act with enlightened self-interest."
—Alan Hughes, former CEO, First Direct Bank

"A detailed and authoritative study that reflects Chris Bones' extensive experience managing talent and guiding leaders."
—Matt Kingdon, Founder, Chairman & Chief Enthusiast of What If?!
