Review

<div>“One of the most brilliant, original, and exciting leadership books I ve read in a long time. On top of all that, it will be the most useful and concise book on leadership you ll ever read!
—Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, University of Southern California, and author of Still Surprised: A Memoir of a Life in Leadership

“With this compact handbook, Mike Useem provides leaders what they all say they want and need but rarely get: a kick-in-the-pants reminder of those parts of the job they have neglected. The boss is now forewarned.
—Steven Pearlstein, Washington Post business columnist and moderator of the On Leadership website

“Leading an enterprise comes down to a set of enduring principles, and The Leader s Checklist compellingly captures the most vital. Michael Useem has written the essential companion for anybody whose leadership is on the line, a concise primer for corporate liftoffs and controlled landings.
—Ram Charan, advisor to CEOs and boards, and coauthor of the bestsellers Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done and The Leadership Pipeline

“A tightly written and superbly designed publication, The Leader s Checklist reads like an adventure yarn, but packs a goldmine of scholarship and tested observations, that surrounds a list of fifteen principles that guide and teach managers to make on-target, effective business decisions, under real pressure.
—Blogcritics

“Leaders often work well by operating on gut instinct, but at times they need to reflect on their actions and their consequences. The Leader s Checklist can refresh a leader s sense of purpose as well as invigorate his or her calling to lead others.
—John Baldoni, SmartBlog on Leadership

The Leader s Checklist is a tightly written 15,000-word book that gets to the point quickly. It may well set the bar for quality writing and amount of content for other business-related digital books in the future….The book is beneficial to those professionals in a leadership role of any kind, including teachers, nurses or any type of professional.
—Patricia Faulhaber, Suite101

Product Description

Named to The Washington Post's 2011 List of Best Leadership Books

In this fast-reading and illuminating expanded edition of the bestselling Leader's Checklist, world-renowned leadership expert Michael Useem deepens his examination of 15 mission-critical principles for leaders

Based on the lessons from astonishing stories, solid research, and years of leadership development work with a wide array of companies and organizations in the United States and abroad, Useem presents today's leaders with 15 guiding principles that form the core of the Leader's Checklist, which will help you develop your ability to make good and timely decisions in unpredictable and stressful environments—for those moments when leadership really matters.

To illustrate how the Leader's Checklist can assist leaders, Useem zeroes in on accounts of extraordinary leaders who rose to the challenge, including Laurence Golborne's role in the triumphant rescue of 33 miners in Chile, Joseph Pfeifer's remarkable heroism as the first FDNY Fire Chief to take command at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and Union officer Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain's transformative actions after the Confederate army's surrender. He also explores the colossal failure of AIG, one of the greatest corporate collapses in business history.

First published exclusively as an ebook—and now also available in print—this updated and expanded edition features a new preface by the author and three new Knowledge@Wharton interviews with Laurence Golborne, Chile's Minister of Mining, on leading the rescue operation of 33 miners trapped in the San José Mine; Joseph Pfeifer, New York City Fire Department's Chief of Counterterrorism and Emergency Preparedness, on being the first Battalion Chief to take command at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001; and the author on why he wrote The Leader's Checklist and what he has learned about the most vital items on the checklist from his recent leadership development work with more than a dozen companies and organizations.
