What sets restaurateur Alice Waters, fashion iconoclast Ralph Lauren, Oracle founder Larry Ellison, producer George Lucas, SNL creator Lorne Michaels, NFL coach Bill Walsh, and hedge fund manager Julian Robertson, apart from their equally famous peers? All are legendary for spawning legions of protégés who have gone on to transform entire industries.
Sydney Finkelstein shares the secrets of these leaders in his new book, Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent. Now, Professor Finkelstein has created the Superboss Playbook containing a range of evaluative and instructional services that can be tailored for your organization.
Praise for Superbosses
“The best bosses—superbosses—must foster a culture of innovation, encourage smart risk taking, remove obstacles, and drive change. They demand world-class performance and empower their teams to achieve it. Superbosses gives leaders a playbook to bring out the best in their people.” Jeff Immelt, chairman and CEO, GE
"This book could make some bosses angry—and that's a good thing. Finkelstein’s examination of what actually makes a legendary leader goes against the grain of much standard management "best practice" and offers a whole new way to think about talent.” Kevin Roberts, executive chairman, Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide
