520 _aThe leadership enterprise is enormous, with billions of dollars, thousands of books, and hundreds of thousands of blogs and talks focused on improving leaders. But what we see worldwide is employee disengagement, high levels of leader turnover and career derailment, and failed leadership development efforts. In this book author shines a bright light on the leadership industry, showing why it’s failing and how it might be remade. He sets the record straight on the oft-made prescriptions for leaders to be honest, authentic, modest, tell the truth, build trust, and take care of others. By calling B.S. on so many of the stories and myths of leadership, he gives people a more scientific look at the evidence and better information to guide their careers. Author also encourages readers to accept the truth and then use facts to change themselves and the world for the better.
