Leadership

What Makes a Leader

Goleman, Daniel. Harvard Business Review. (82 (1), Jan. 2004, 82-91)
McNichols Campus Library

Harvard Business Review says this is one of the 10 must read articles from all the years of publication of the HBR.

The Prince

Machiavelli, Niccolo. (The New American Library, 1959)
McNichols Campus Library
JC143 .M38 1959

"I recommend this for its insight into the dynamics of power. In addition to the technical side of business and the financial fundamentals taught in MBA programs, it is important to understand the forces that drive people in organizations. Decision-making is not always rational; it is sometimes, maybe even often, affected by executive egos and power struggles. Its enduring insights are relevant to the crisis in modern corporations today, because of the Enron collapse and subsequent revelations about financial missteps in other companies."
Rosabeth Moss Kanter.  Business Week Online 11/15/06 (3/21/03)

 

Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela

Mandela, Nelson. (Back Bay Books, 1995)
McNichols Campus Library
DT 1949 .M35 A3 1995

"This is an inspiring story about leadership in the most difficult of circumstances. Nelson Mandela led the struggle against apartheid in South Africa from a prison cell. He had a long-term view, persisted against all odds, had a support system of colleagues and knew how to build coalitions, negotiated a settlement, and then, when he won and became President of South Africa, he forgave his enemies."
Rosabeth Moss Kanter  Business Week Online 11/15/06 (3/21/03)

The Killer Angels; A Novel

Shaara, Michael. (McKay, 1974)
McNichols Campus Library
PZ 4 .S524

From Library Journal
The late Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (1974) concerns the battle of Gettysburg and was the basis for the 1993 film Gettysburg. The events immediately before and during the battle are seen through the eyes of Confederate Generals Lee, Longstreet, and Armistead and Federal General Buford, Colonel Joshua L. Chamberlain, and a host of others. The author's ability to convey the thoughts of men in war as well as their confusion-the so-called "fog of battle"-is outstanding.
