about this item

Is it possible for visionary leaders to adhere to their idealism and integrity without becoming casualties of corporate conservatism and executive-level politics? This books says "yes," arguing for the need for visionary change agents in organizations and resolving the paradox of visionary change in a bureaucratic environment.

• Helps visionaries to identify their character traits, both positive and negative, and gives them direction on how to hang on to their idealism while more clearly perceiving how their actions affect others in the organization, including their managers, corporate leadership, or board of directors

• Describes a previously undocumented yet common dynamic that has frustrated many ambitious employees, told from the visionary's own viewpoint

• Explains how to manage visionaries more effectively by encouraging them to make meaningful contributions that can be embraced and claimed by others in the organization

• Enables leaders who are change agents to improve their chances of staying in an executive position long enough for their ideas to gel and take positive effect

• Features interesting profiles of (ultimately) successful visionaries—maverick leaders who were often initially fired or smothered for their methods and mindsets—throughout the book
