Publisher's Summary

Roger Martin looks beyond the actions of great leaders. He says the lessons we really need to learn come from what goes on in their heads - particularly the way they creatively build on the tensions among conflicting ideas.

From the June 2007 issue of Harvard Business Review.

A waste of time

This article took thirty minutes to say exactly what Audible summed up in two sentences- except the author added a lot more adjectives. This felt like a book report with half a page of content fluffed to fill five pages. There was no relevant information beyond what was stated in the synopsis, so save yourself half an hour and two bucks and go for something else.
