"The Leader," an entirely new breed of manager, has seized the reins of power, looking beyond money and status alone toward inspiring a team that fulfills company and personal expectations.

The Leader examines six real managers from America and Europe in action--a factory foreman, a union leader, a plant manager, a chief executive, a ranking civil servant, and a congressman. It reveals their attitudes about people, power, and organizational structure, resulting in a new philosophy that ultimately leads to increased satisfaction, creating a more human, efficient, and productive workplace.

Dealing with changing technology . . . pursuing people-oriented goals . . . setting the pace for the exciting decade ahead.
