In a lively dialogue that richly compares and contrasts their ideas, they offer a series of useful leadership strategies, including

  • building trust
  • finding a mentor to encourage reflective backtalk
  • rewarding accomplishment
  • Their strategies will help transform leadership visions into reality and lead organizations into a future that includes increased employee satisfaction and continued economic growth.

    About the Author:

    WARREN BENNIS is distinguished professor of Business Administration at the University of Southern California. He is the author of On Becoming a Leader and has served in an advisory position to four U.S. presidents. He lives in Santa Monica, California.

    From Publishers Weekly:

    Are organizations better controlled, guided and directed by leadership or by management? The title of this book gives the authors' answer. The distinction between leadership and management is presented in platitudes, e.g., "The manager maintains: the leader develops." Bennis (Why Leaders Can't Lead) and Townsend (Up the Organization) further state that militaristic, command-and-control leadership has become anachronistic, and that the current downsized, flat-management era requires a new leadership style. To help readers develop the desirable new leadership traits, "dialogue starters" are suggested at the end of each chapter. The book concludes with a 21-day plan to help readers apply the pithy principles. Perhaps some might benefit from such a plan, but readers should be as skeptical of that laudable goal as they would be of a big weight loss in so short a time.
