Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In today's dog-eat-dog world of competition and ongoing change, people in every position, especially the "old dogs," must learn to work as great groups and creative coalitions rather than as "lone wolves." They must learn the relatively "new tricks" of collaboration and innovation. Through creative collaboration, these leaders position their companies to be more adaptive and more profitable, continually reinventing themselves to address new markets and capitalize on new technologies.


When it comes to writing about leadership, there's no one better than Bennis. I consider him one of my gurus.
—Ken Blanchard
