Dotlich, David L; Cairo, Peter C


This book shows that even the best leaders can sabotage their own success by succumbing to certain flawed behaviours that are often closely tied to the factors that make for success. Athe authors reveal how leaders at every level can become aware of their own negative behaviours and take steps to control them. Drawing on research and real stories based on their experience in educating and coaching thousands of leaders around the world, the authors describe eleven derailers that can impact judgement and lead to business and career problems, even failure, and show leaders how to identify the shadow side of their personalities and take steps to control their impulses and increase their effectivesness and impact.
