Survival guide for leaders

While leadership is often viewed as an exciting and glamorous endeavor, one in which you inspire others to follow you through good times and bad, such a portrayal ignores leadership's dark side: the inevitable attempts to take you out of the game. This is particularly true when a leader must steer an organization through difficult change. This "survival guide" offers a number of techniques - relatively straightforward in concept but difficult to execute - for protecting yourself as you lead such a change initiative.

The hard work of being a soft manager

Soft management does not mean weak management. The stereotypical leader is a solitary tough guy, never in doubt and immune to criticism. Real leaders break that mold. They invite candid feedback and even admit they don’t have all the answers.

Where leadership starts

The author recounts his experience of becoming a CEO in a struggling company in a industry he nothing about. Focusing on people proved to be the most crucial (and challenging) task. Allowing the employees to be 'the boss' in certain situations actually helped him lead the company.
