Publisher's Summary

How did Alan Mulally - an outsider to the auto industry - lead such a spectacular turnaround at Ford? How did Morgan Stanley CEO John Mack keep his company from imploding even as Lehman Brothers collapsed? What is it that enables such extraordinary leaders to galvanize their talents and energy, as well as the talents and energy of those who work for them, to achieve superior performance no matter what challenges they face?

Rajeev Peshawaria has spent more than 20 years working alongside top executives at Fortune 500 companies and training them in leadership. He knows precisely what makes the difference between those who are simply bosses and those who are superior leaders, and between those who continue to rise to the top levels and those who get stuck along the way.

In this lively and remarkably empowering book, Peshawaria offers listeners the opportunity to experience the highest level of leadership training available in the world. Introducing the three core principles he has observed are the foundation of the best leadership - that great leaders clearly define their purpose and values; that nobody can motivate another person because everyone comes premotivated; and that a leader's job is not to directly produce results but to create the conditions that will harness the energy of others - he details his unique and proven program for achieving leadership excellence.

Sharing a wealth of illuminating stories, from those of Mulally's achievement at Ford and Mack's at Morgan Stanley, to how Harvey Golub and Ken Chenault successfully restored American Express to long-term sustainable growth, how Neville Isdell turned the Coca-Cola company around, and the continuing prowess of Jeff Bezos in growing Amazon.com, he first reveals how extraordinary leaders marshal and sustain the level of energy in themselves that is required and how they enlist a core group of proficient co-leaders.

    Story
    "Great read for both leaders and individuals"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Too Many Bosses, Too Few Leaders to be better than the print version?

    Yes - the author in this book, has summarized his vast experience corporate world, into basic, useable and implementable nuggets on how to lead without counting resource shortage or even lack of authority...


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The B-B-N model on leading an organization and galvanising energy of more than just self.


    What does Sean Runnette bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He reads the book with a lot of expressions, kind of getting used to his style! Like it...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It took me a few sessions, mostly to be able to absorb the material and not just listen to it. Found it very well written and with examples supporting a viewpoint and practical suggetions with a list of things to look for, at some instances, to be valuable. Overall an inspiring book which makes the reader aware of pitfalls at various leadership levels.
