Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time, by Jeffrey Pfeffer
JEFFREY Pfeffer is a professor of organisational behaviour at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University. He is one of those writers on business issues whose books one should not overlook. His offerings The Knowing-Doing Gap and Power rank high among must-read business books.
This book is a reflection on a serious problem that is very poorly addressed. There are “too many leadership failures, too many career derailments, and too many toxic workplaces… and there is an almost unimaginably vast, list of leadership catastrophes”, Pfeffer asserts.
