SUPERBOSSES: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent

SUPERBOSSESLarry Ellison. Lorne Michaels. Ralph Lauren. Tommy Frist. Bill Walsh. And a dozen others. Business leaders with tremendous track records who all have something else in common: They helped develop the best talent in their industries, who in turn helped them become the legendary successes they are today.

Based on 10 years of research and hundreds of interviews, we were thrilled to have Superbosses author, Professor Sydney Finkelstein, join us to lead a session of ExecuNet Master Class. In the session, he outlines what these exceptional leaders did, and how they did it. The professor describes the “superboss playbook” – the key management practices that separate the best bosses from the merely good ones.

LinkedIn Chairman Reid Hoffman calls Superbosses “a leadership guide for the Networked Age,” while Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO of GE, says “Superbosses gives leaders a playbook to bring out the best in their people.”

Listen to this recorded session and you will never go about leading, recruiting, evaluating and developing talent in quite the same way.

Here’s what some attendees of the live event had to say:

  • “I  really liked the Superboss playbook and Dr. Finkelstein’s answer on the 4 qualities that Superbosses look for (Intelligence, Flexibility, Creativity, Competitiveness).”
  • “Great stories and reinforcement of key learning leadership principles.”
  • “Valuable and informative opens your mind to look at things a different way.”
  • “Learned behaviors and practices that will get the best out of my team.”
