Summary and Info
Today's leaders need more "fire" to take society into the 21st Century, says Tom Brown, author of The Anatomy Of Fire. After studying the ideal of leadership developed over hundreds of years, Brown concludes, "Leadership is not about creating and extracting wealth for the benefit of the few. Nor is it about the raw exercise of power. It's about the discovery of new and better ideas for improving life for all. Generating widespread enthusiasm for better ways, finding the resources to turn them into reality, and being resilient in the face of setbacks are the qualities of tomorrow's leaders. Most importantly, making a contribution to society -- improving the human condition -- will be what separates leaders from mere placeholders in the future." Jim Collins, co-author of Built To Last and author of Good To Great, wrote in the Foreword to this book: "Tom argues that true leaders in any discipline choose exploration over exploitation, rallying over ruling, imagination over inventory, achievement over compliance, and giving over taking. In this work, Tom displays all five choices." This is the updated, Millennium edition and is now offered as a collection of e-Docs by BrownHerron Publishing, with permission, and sold exclusively on Amazon.com.
