From the Publisher

A handbook that addresses the moral failures and corruption of political and corporate officials, this reference suggests that, regardless of how morally strong a leader, all face seven core risks, but by identifying and learning to recognize each risk, leaders can stop creating misery for themselves and the people who rely on them emotionally and financially and deliver the sustainable success people count on them for. Following the story of Rob,” this story begins with the demise of a fallen herorevisiting the choices Rob made as he first took a leadership role and began growing in stature and power. At every step in Rob’s ascent, the author demonstrates how each of the seven fatal risk factors build upon one another, creating an inevitable downward spiral. The author then offers practical ways to avoid Rob’s fate with the marshalling of diagnostic tools, questions, and quizzes as well as big-picture solutions and practical tasks that aim to reinforce leadership abilities, retain confidence, and earn and keep the trust of others.
