But there’s nothing traditional about business today. Staying relevant is a constant struggle, requiring ideas, effort, and excellence from every corner of the organization. Luckily, this grassroots leadership is already in place, just waiting to be activated.
The Hidden Leader casts a fresh eye of what it means to be a leader, with insights on how to locate and nurture the people who take initiative, act courageously, and get the job done right. These are the hidden leaders whose everyday performances deliver the competitive advantage you need.
