Drawing on the leadership theories in the management classic The Leadership Challenge , Robert Thompson effortlessly incorporates these ideas into a fable of leadership and growth. Based on a company's three-day offsite meeting, we follow this tale of transition through the eyes of two former rival pharmaceutical companies creating a joint sales strategy. The characters ultimately learn how to adopt the five practises that form the Leadership Challenge : Model the Way Inspire a Shared Vision Challenge the Process Enable Others to Act Encourage the Heart.
