Leadership Jazz by Max De Pree
Book DescriptionSince it was first published to wide acclaim in 1992, the bestselling "Leadership Jazz" has firmly placed itself among the great business classics. Former President Bill Clinton called it "astonishing," and the late Peter Drucker advised, "Read this slowly. This book is wisdom in action." Now updated for first time in well over a decade, this powerful book reveals why today, more than ever, leadership is more an art than a science. Today's best leaders, De Pree says, are attuned to the needs and ideas of their followers, and even step aside at times to be followers themselves. Filled with insightful stories from De Pree's experience as the chairman of Herman Miller and from people he's met along the way, "Leadership Jazz" reveals how to: - Hold people accountable and give them space to reach their potential- See the needs of employees and those of the company as the same- Inspire change and innovation - Work effectively with creative people Complete with an extensive new introduction from De Pree on why his philosophy is more relevant now than ever before, "Leadership Jazz" gives you an entirely new way to look at the difficult job of leader.
