This resource addresses the topic: Management.

Leading by Example: Straight Talk From the World's Top Business Leaders (New)
Harvard Business School Press
Not everyone is a born leader. This resource, a product of the Lessons Learned series, presents leaders' stories in their own words—some cautionary tales and others full of hopeful wisdom. As with all Lessons Learned books, Leading by Example features prominent figures from academia, business, and the public sector. Each anecdote provides bulleted "takeaways," which clearly elucidate the main lessons learned. Leadership often means learning some of the hardest lessons presented in the text, including "Leadership is not a popularity contest" and "The front line is the bottom line." Other issues include maintaining humility, being a good listener, and always encouraging a positive atmosphere. (100 pages)
