Leadership lessons from icons of industry that will help you achieve breakthrough success
What the Best CEOs Know looks at the careers of this generation's top CEOs, and turns the wisdom, strategies, and tactics of these business-world icons into a step-by-step handbook for the pursuit and achievement of breakthrough corporate leadership--at any level, in any industry. Going beyond anecdotes and quotes to introduce proven methods to help you become a better leader, bestselling business author Jeffrey Krames uses cases, self-assessments, and concise summaries to provide a blueprint-like framework for success.
