Now in paper! The blueprint for instituting change used by America′s top CEOs!

THE TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADER

Lee Iacocca is one. So is GE′s Jack Welch. And Unisys′s Michael Blumenthal. They′re "transformational" leaders––a special breed capable of managing the kind of massive turnaround most U.S. companies will have to undergo in the next decade to stay competitive. But what makes them able to steer their huge organizations down new paths? The Transformational Leader gives senior executives and managers the answers, not by profiling personalities, but by dissecting the process of transformational leadership and giving managers specific ideas for transforming their own companies.
