The best leaders are born, not made. The best leaders are always in control. The best leaders are those with the highest IQs. But are they really?
The thinking surrounding what makes the greatest leaders is increasingly muddled by stereotypes, snake oil promises, and pseudo-science. The best leaders rely on fact, not fads. Myths of Leadership blasts away the fluff and confronts false legends head on. Jo Owen uses the most credible research to analyse each myth, using international business case studies, leadership theory, and insightful interviews, to uncover the truth.
This is a compelling and practical examination of the most pervasive misconceptions about leadership that will help you elevate your own leadership abilities, better inspire your team and empower your organization by thinking differently. Entertaining but evidence-based, Myths of Leadership throws out the management jargon and skewers over-hyped leadership trends to bring you the best practical tips you need to become a better leader.
