John P. Kotter on What Leaders Really Do
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
With the relentless change and escalating uncertainty that define our times, the need for strong leadership in business, government, and society has never been greater. Careers, customers, and communities all suffer in a poorly run enterprise. Sure to be eagerly embraced by Kotter's huge global following, John P. Kotter on What Leaders Really Do provides an invaluable opportunity to consider the core issues that lie at the heart of leadership and to rethink our own relationship to the work of leaders.
Kotter (leadership, Harvard Business School) offers an assessment of the real work of leaders, in this collection of articles first written between 1979 and 1997. The articles deal with challenges in managerial work and what differentiates effective from ineffective responses to these challenges, and they examine issues of leadership and change, coping with dependence, and webs of interaction. In a new introduction he reflects on themes that have developed throughout his work. Annotation © Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

• "Leadership is different from management, but not for the reasons most people think.... Nor is leadership necessarily better than management or a replacement for it. Rather, leadership and management are two distinctive and complementary systems of action. Each has its own function and characteristic activities. Both are necessary for success in an increasingly complex and volatile business environment." Pg. 51
