Detailed Product Description
UK & NY, 2006, 1st ed. 184 pp. Leaders extol the value of pursuing challenging goals, but evidence suggests that this leads to disaster as often as success. Drawing upon engaging real-life stories, including the 1996 Mount Everest Climbing Disaster, the author shows how destructive goal pursuit can result in the breakdown of learning in teams. He questions assumptions about traditional leadership and calls for rethinking the role of the leader. This provides an unparalleled analysis of leadership and practical strategies for overcoming destructive pursuit of goals. Hardcover, DJ, New.
