Leading Leaders: How to Manage Smart, Talented, Rich and Powerful People
Leading Leaders will tell you, as the title suggests, how to deal with influential, talented, and valuable people. The problem is that, being all of the above, they are not extremely tractable, nor extremely cooperative. Salacuse shows the reader how to “leverage the expertise of the elites that work in and around any organization, and how to bring strong personalities and opinions together while leaving the common power struggles and politics behind.” Salacuse is the Henry J. Baker Professor of Law and former dean of the Fletcher School of Law at Tufts University. He has served as executive, consultant, Wall Street lawyer, and director of several mutual funds listed on the New York Stock Exchange. More ...
