Product description

The old leadership paradigms of CEO-led planning, organizing, commanding, coordinating, and controlling no longer work, and lead to organizations functioning like a herd of buffalo, loyal, but waiting to get slaughtered in the marketplace. Beginning where Teaching the Elephant to Dance left off, FLIGHT OF THE BUFFALO presents a new leadership model for the 1990s based on a number of specific strategies for learning to let employees lead by providing focus, changing the context to remove obstacles to success, developing a sense of ownership, and stimulating self-directed action through learning. Although traditional leadership paradigms stress leaders making decisions and 'motivating' employees to do the same, FLIGHT OF THE BUFFALO presents a model of 'employee leadership' that American corporations must have if they are to prosper in the coming decade.
