9780029184653: A Force for Change: How Leadership Differs from Management

Strong managers produce predictability and order, but leaders create, communicate and implement visions of the future which enable companies to change themselves in a changing competitive marketplace. Building upon his landmark analysis of the job of the general manager and his influential work on leadership, power and influence, John Kotter now focuses on the human factors which bring change. Using case studies from 11 top corporations, Kotter unfolds the stories behind the great successes of leaders who propelled their companies beyond expectations. Through example after example, Kotter identifies the specific personal attributes of these leaders and illustrates the practices that create outstanding leadership.

Review:

William H. Genge

Chairman, Ketchum Communications, Inc.

John Kotter demythologizes the concept of leadership and clearly distinguishes it from management. In the process, he provides new guidelines for leaders and managers trying to optimize their relationships and effectiveness.



Paul Fulton

President, Sara Lee Corporation

Kotter's insights are remarkable. "A Force for Change" will be required reading for all our young managers.



Michael M. Lombardo

Center for Creative Leadership

The most compelling and incisive description of leadership processes and structures that I've ever seen.



Thomas J. Mithen

General Electric

Full of powerful, useful ideas that will be of great service to those who have been struggling to define and assess leadership.



Warren R. Wilhelm

AMOCO Corporation

One not only learns from his book, but is excited by it. The weaving of research results and case examples is extremely effective.



Robert E. Gregory, Jr.

President, VF Corporation

"A Force for Change" will be received as the seminal work on the nature and function of leadership.



Irvine 0. Hockaday, Jr.

Chief Executive Officer, Hallmark Cards, Inc.

There are many echoes but few voices writing about leadership and management these days. John Kotter's is one of those voices. His concepts offer fresh perspectives which hit home with force and endurance.
