What the Best CEOs Know: 7 Exceptional Leaders and Their Lessons for Transforming Any Business
What are the traits, tactics, and strategies of the business world's most transformative leaders ... and what can the rest of us learn from them? In What the Best CEOs Know, leadership authority Jeffrey Krames examines the careers of seven of history's most accomplished CEOs--including in-depth interviews with Michael Dell, Lou Gerstner, and Herb Kelleher--to get candid answers to many of today's most compelling business questions. The result is a blueprint-like framework that instructs as well as it informs, and provides managers with the firsthand secrets of leadership giants. Proven learning tools--from cases and lesson summaries to selfassessment exercises--reinforce the book's methods and key ideas. Each chapter of What the Best CEOs Know provides innovative features including: * Assess Your CEO Quotient * Leadership Lessons of the CEO * What would Jack Welch et al. do? A host of well-known and bestselling books have detailed the success formulas of specific CEOs. But until now, no single book has compiled the strategies of several CEOs--let alone the world's most well-known business leaders--into a handbook for achieving breakthrough corporate stewardship. What the Best CEOs Know does exactly that, combining the wisdom, strategies, and tactics of today's most accomplished CEOs into one powerful and one-of-a-kind business resource.
