The Provocateur: Why Great Leaders are Educators, Entertainers, Sages, and Sherpa Guides, but not Generals

Lawrence Weber

The Provocateur: Why Great Leaders are Educators, Entertainers, Sages, and Sherpa Guides, but not Generals by Lawrence WeberWhat's the difference between CEOs like Lou Gerstner of IBM and Larry Ellison of Oracle? Between basketball coaches Phil Jackson and Bobby Knight? Or media entrepreneurs Oprah Winfrey and Rupert Murdoch?

Gerstner, Jackson, and Winfrey are provocateurs, leaders who are successful not just because they have built a company or an organization, but because they have created a community. Provocateurs are changing both the form and the content of leadership and are in sync with a world being turned upside down by technology, the global economy, and the social landscape.

Success has traditionally been...

The Breakthrough Company: How Everyday Companies Become Extraordinary Performers

Keith R. Mcfarland

The Breakthrough Company: How Everyday Companies Become Extraordinary Performers by Keith R. McfarlandThe vast majority of small businesses stay small—and not by choice. Only the most savvy and persistent—a tiny one tenth of one percent—break through to annual sales above $250 million. In The Breakthrough Company, Keith McFarland pinpoints how everyday companies become extraordinary, showing that luck is a negligible factor. Rather, breakthrough success turns out to be associated with a clearly identifiable set of strategies and skills that anyone in any business can emulate—from small startup to industry leader.

Encouraged by experts such as business legend Peter Drucker and Good to Great author...

How Digital Is Your Business?

Adrian J. Slywotzky & David Morrison & Karl Weber

How Digital Is Your Business? by Adrian J. Slywotzky & David Morrison & Karl WeberThe biggest, most important issue in business today--becoming digital--touches not only traditional enterprises but the most avant-garde of Internet companies as well.

Old-economy companies must take steps to avoid becoming victims of capitalism's creative destruction, the unofficial system that flushes out the old to make way for the new. For dot-com companies the question is whether or not they are flash-in-the-pan businesses with no long-term prospects of profitability and customer loyalty.

Most of the early efforts to answer the question "How digital is your business?" have been shrouded in...

Mind Your Own Business: A Maverick's Guide to Business, Leadership and Life

Sidney Harman

Mind Your Own Business: A Maverick's Guide to Business, Leadership and Life by Sidney Harman"The maverick's way of conducting business forswears the leader as commanding general; it rejects the practice of top-down, authoritative command. Rather, it proposes the leader as catalyst, conscience, and inspirer . . . The true leader sees his job as setting an environment in which new ideas can emerge that neither he nor any other individual anticipated. That leap of imagination, that moment of genuine creativity, can only be inspired by a leader who encourages exploration and shows a willingness to consider a totally new approach." --from Mind Your Own Business

Rule #1 The first rule of business is the same as the first rule of life: Adapt or die.

Doing What Matters: How to Get Results That Make a Difference - The Revolutionary Old-School Approach by James M. Kilts & John F. Manfredi & Robert LorberWhen Warren Buffett was asked why the Gillette board of directors chose Jim Kilts to be CEO, he said, "Jim made as much sense in terms of talking about business as anybody I've ever talked to. If you listen to Jim analyze a business situation you get absolutely no baloney. And, frankly, finding someone like that is a rarity."

There is only one CEO in recent times who has faced—and succeeded at—the extraordinary challenges of leading three major companies—Gillette, Nabisco, and Kraft—into prosperous futures by doing what matters on the fundamentals.

That CEO is Jim Kilts. In this vivid first-person...
