Lorne Michaels. Ralph Lauren. Alice Waters. George Lucas. Larry Ellison. Miles Davis. And a dozen others. Business leaders and creative icons with tremendous track records who all have something else in common: they helped develop the best talent in their industries, who in turn helped them become the legendary successes they are today. Based on ten years of research and hundreds of interviews, Superbosses describes what these exceptional leaders did, and how they did it. In his book, Dartmouth Professor Sydney Finkelstein describes the “superboss playbook”, the key management practices that separate the best bosses from the merely good ones, and the pathway to becoming a better leader yourself. LinkedIn Chairman Reid Hoffman calls it “a leadership guide for the Networked Age,” while Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO of GE, says “Superbosses gives leaders a playbook to bring out the best in their people.” You can pre-order Superbosses at Amazon or your local bookstore.
Inc magazine, the Washington Post, and Forbes all listed Superbosses in their Top Ten list of must-read business books coming out in 2016. And the Wall Street Journal singled out Superbosses for an article on “What Your CEO is Reading in 2016”.
