9780671520984: Make It So: Leadership Lessons from Star Trek: The Next Generation

T he fast-changing business world of today is far different from just a few years ago. Success in today's marketplace requires new leadership techniques, new thinking, and an eye on the future . . . .
In Make It So: Leadership Lessons from Star Trek: The Next Generation®, Wess Roberts and coauthor Bill Ross take their inspiration from today's most striking and most popular vision of the future -- Star Trek -- an unprecedented television, feature film and publishing phenomenon. From the top-rated television series Star Trek: The Next Generation, Roberts and Ross find a new symbol for successful leadership: Captain Jean-Luc Picard.
As entertaining as it is useful, Make It So captures the mythos of Star Trek: The Next Generation as it delivers dramatically rich lessons on leadership, including the importance of the ability to focus on a single "mission," effective communication, teamwork, honor . . . and other important concepts. The examples are taken from the on-screen adventures of Captain Picard and the Starship EnterpriseTM, but the lessons and the benefits are real -- and can be applied to everyday situations where the goal is the kind of high-performance organization embodied by the crew of the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM 1701-D.
Sure to appeal to Star Trek enthusiasts and serious students of leadership alike, Make It So is the most exciting business book on the shelves -- the one book that shows the future of modern leadership while giving managers the tools they need for success today!
