This book torches seven leadership myths: 1) Leadership entails taking charge of people. 2) Leaders are transformational, managers transactional. 3) Leadership is a set of skills that anybody can develop. 4) Leaders require emotional intelligence and integrity. 5) Managers should be replaced by leaders. 6) Leadership entails working relationships with followers. 7) Great leaders soothe our anxieties... For revolutionary implications: Leadership blasts the status quo to promote new directions. It does NOT manage people. Management is reborn as an inspiring, empowering force to get things done through people... and practical benefits: executives gain focus. All employees show leadership, bottom-up, for faster innovation plus better engagement and retention.
