What distinguishes leaders from ordinary managers? The authors present three distinct philosophies of leadership - political, directive, and values-driven - advocating each in turn to challenge the reader's own assumptions. Through extensive interviews with executives, the authors show how leaders who hold certain prejudices or predispositions can resolve classic managerial dilemmas.
