From the award-winning author of The Leadership Moment comes a definitive checklist to help today’s leaders act decisively when it counts the most.
In this fast-reading and illuminating book, world-renowned leadership expert Michael Useem provides 15 guiding principles that form the core of the Leader’s Checklist. He helps you to personalize your checklist to the unique needs and demands of your organization. To demonstrate the power of the Leader’s Checklist, Useem examines accounts of extraordinary leadership, including the triumphant rescue of 33 miners in Chile.
Based on solid research and years of working on leadership development with a wide array of companies and organizations in the United States and abroad, The Leader’s Checklist will help you develop your ability to make good and timely decisions in unpredictable and stressful environments—for those moments when leadership really matters.
“The Leader’s Checklist is one of the most brilliant, original, and exciting leadership books I’ve read in a long time. On top of all that, it will be the most useful and concise book on leadership you’ll ever read!”
– Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, University of Southern California, and author of Still Surprised: A Memoir of a Life in Leadership
“With this compact handbook, Mike Useem provides leaders what they all say they want and need but rarely get: a kick-in-the-pants reminder of those parts of the job they have neglected. The boss is now forewarned.”
- Steven Pearlstein, Washington Post business columnist and moderator of the On Leadership web site.
“Leading an enterprise comes down to a set of enduring principles, and The Leader’s Checklist compellingly captures the most vital. Michael Useem has written the essential companion for anybody whose leadership is on the line, a concise primer for corporate liftoffs and controlled landings.”
– Ram Charan, advisor to CEOs and boards, and co-author of the best sellers Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done and The Leadership Pipeline.
