Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

It has long been clear to me that some better way to manage a business is sorely needed. . . . Hierarchy is so poorly regarded that many able people shy away from joining large companies. . . . My purpose is to change the way your company is run. . . . Therefore, this book is offered as a challenge to chief executives, boards of directors, top executives, middle managers, business academics, consulting firms, gurus, and B-school graduates to find the best way for particular companies to switch from managing with authority to leading people.

From Library Journal:

At least since World War II, "command and control" has been the dominant model for running organizations, but this concept is being seriously reconsidered today. Bower sums up over 60 years of experience with McKinsey & Co.?an international management consulting firm?with personal advice on how to run a business built on a network of leaders. His background qualifies him to comment on such business strategies as leading vs. commanding, developing leaders and leadership teams, and leading governing boards. The author is a straight shooter, offering a legitimate alternative to the massive leadership hype that fills the shelves these days. Recommended for academic and larger public libraries.?Dale F. Farris, Groves, Tex.
