In Their Time: The Greatest Business Leaders of the Twentieth Century based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The field of leadership is littered with numerous books that are nothing more than anecdote based accounts that conclude with a list of platitudes for successful leadership. For those who want to go beyond the cute lists of success factors for leadership that lack much substance to a well researched, historically grounded, and comprehensive account of what really makes great leaders, this is your book. This book is among one of the first to try to go beyond contemporary fads and fashions that may be in vogue to take a detailed look over a 100 year time period and distill the essential qualities that have made great leaders across this extraordinary century in human history. The authors uncover the important quality of contextual intelligence evident in great leaders across this time period and provide inspiration and insight for those who aspire to follow in their footsteps. A must read for anyone on the journey to great leadership!
This was a book I could not put down. My students will get to enjoy the interesting facts in this novel. My wife, who has no interest in buisness what so ever also loved In Their Time. Mayo has proven himself as a very impressive author.
