Managing People is Like Herding Cats

Kogan Page, 1998 - 236 páginas
This collection spells out the dilemmas facing our leaderless society, details the qualities that successful leaders must have, and explores the challenges that today's leaders must face as they move toward change. The frustrated managers who try command and order and try to herd cats will fail. Cats won't allow themselves to be herded. They may, however, be coaxed, cajoled, persuaded, adored, and gently led.
