Item Type: Book
Abstract: Being the chairman of a company is the top job. Forget the hyperbole and hero-worship surrounding CEOs, it is the world's chairmen who call the real corporate shots. It is chairmen who hire and fire CEOs. Little wonder that some CEOs choose to neuter the chairman by combining the two roles. "Leading the Board" provides unique and powerful insights into what it takes to succeed as a chairman leading a modern organization. Based on global research, the leading business academics and consultants Andrew and Nada Kakabadse unveil the six disciplines of world class chairmen. As the chairman's role becomes increasingly recognized as the pre-eminent leadership role within organizations, "Leading the Board" will become the standard work of reference and inspiration for the world's chairmen and would-be chairmen, as well as those seeking to better understand boardroom dynamics.
