Another guide for the executive who isn't afraid to think and will face facts honestly. The author differentiates clearly between the brass hat executing who doesn't know how to lead, teach, inspire, give confidence or produce results-and the progressive type of executive who listens, learns from his mistakes, finds out the facts, isn't afraid of criticism or new ideas, recognizes the importance of personal relationships and the value of real leadership. Full of big names from the world of business and their ideas as executives. A thoroughly constructive and worthwhile book for the young executive who is anxious to grow, and could be helpful to executives at the top who need stimulation and new vision. A little wordy and repetitious at times, but worth the digging. There are excellent hints for both junior and senior executives.
