About this title


A successful career means more than just upward mobility and a house in the suburbs-it's the chance to work with people who are as optimistic, energetic, and successful as you are. The chance, in other words, to be part of a company of heroes.

In this book, authors Henry Sims and Charles Manz show you how to make this dream come true. Company of Heroes is a springboard for releasing the talent, energy, and enthusiasm of everyone in the organization-not just those at the top. Offering new concepts of leadership-among them, heroic self-leadership-this remarkable book calls for a new, dynamic attitude toward work in today's business organizations.

Developing ideas presented in their acclaimed book SuperLeadership, the authors describe a pragmatic, detailed program you can use to transform everyone in your company into a heroic self-leader. You'll learn:
* How to become a self-leader and serve as a self-leadership model for others
* Why SuperLeadership is much more in tune with today's business needs than traditional models of leadership
* How the core process of follower self-leadership works and how to implement proven self-leadership strategies
* How organizations and managers can make the challenging transition to self-leadership
* How to use teams to empower followers and how to take the entire team concept to the next level
* How a total culture of self-leadership can create a company of heroes
* What can be learned from the examples of such real-life SuperLeaders as Jack Welch, CEO of General Electric; Ricardo Semler, CEO of Semler Industries; and Dennis Bakke, CEO of AES Corporation

An invaluable resource for all managers and supervisors, Company of Heroes is a blueprint for all those who want to build the new, more dynamic organizations of the future now.

A practical, step-by-step program for unleashing the full talents of everyone in your organization

Company of Heroes

In the leaner, meaner organizations of the 1990s the ability to turn a work group into a company of heroes is the key to managerial success. Drawing on concepts set forth in their bestselling SuperLeadership, Henry P. Sims, Jr., and Charles C. Manz provide a complete set of proven, easy-to-use strategies and techniques that managers can use to help their people become heroes-creative, highly motivated self-leaders.

Practical, step-by-step guidance on implementing SuperLeadership concepts in any industry
* How to become a self-leader and serve as a self-leadership model for others
* A detailed examination of the traditional leadership models-why they have lost effectiveness and why SuperLeadership offers a more dynamic, empowering way to lead
* Promoting self-led teamwork and boosting the performance levels of teams
* Vivid, real-life examples of SuperLeaders and self-leadership in action

And many more strategies and techniques for unleashing the powerful self-leadership capacity that resides within each person. Company of Heroes is must reading for all managers and supervisors determined to create extraordinarily effective organizations.
