"From Manager to Visionary provides a truly unique and innovative study of how the individual personalities and styles of UN Secretaries General matter in the real world. Kent Kille's rigorous scholarship, linking carefully measured leader characteristics to specific patterns of behavior across a series of past UN leaders, opens wide a window to anyone interested in obtaining a better view of how the UN really functions, and how the individual styles of secretaries general often shape their subsequent decision making and performances in office."
