Description - Reflections on Leadership and Career Development by Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries

Reflections on Leadership and Career Development is the second of the three books in the Manfred kets de Vries on the Couch series. Here, kets de Vries takes an in-depth look at the way basic psychological processes operate on individual and corporate performance and analyses these in the context of case studies of leaders and organizations, including a lengthy study of Vladimir Putin, as ?CEO of Russia, Inc.?. The third part of the book examines the career life cycle and how executives cope (or fail to cope) with rites de passage like succession and retirement. The chapters in this book take different perspectives on the intimate connection between individuals? personality or ?inner theatre? and the organizational context in which they work, ? how different personality types, in positions of leadership or as members of management teams, affect the functioning and success of organizations.
