By Michael Useem

Crown Business, 2001

A top leadership academic provides a blueprint for creating leadership at every level at a time when traditional businesses relax their hierarchical management structures. The Wharton professor offers advice on how to prevail by helping your boss be successful, particularly when he or she engages in self-defeating practices. Useem not only looks at companies such as CBS, Compaq Computer Corp. and British Airways p.l.c., but also draws on unconventional examples like Civil War battles and Bill Bradley’s presidential campaign.
