Today's business landscape is mired with hypocrisy and false promises. Leaders need to practice what they preach - even if what they preach takes them into possibly uncharted and unorthodox territory. What if top executives were completely clear about their organizations' first virtues, and those virtues represented a real change from what nearly all of the business community had always practiced?
Walk the Walk is a must-listen for anyone who aspires to be a leader or to understand leadership. Author Alan Deutschman explains that leaders striving to create change can rely on only two tools: what they say and how they act. But in today's skeptical world, few of us will believe what they say, especially when they're pursuing audacious goals and challenging our deep-rooted beliefs and practices.
Walk the Walk shows how aspiring leaders must inspire and teach us through their own actions. Deutschman's analysis is informed by his two-decades of experience as a journalist covering the most prominent business figures of our times. He portrays dramatic and illuminating examples of leadership - not only in business but also in politics, the military, education, and social change.
