Summary, etc.:
**Program Highlights**.- 35% of US employees would rather get their boss fired than receive a big raise..- More employees are actively sabotaging their employers than the few who are working hard..- Narcissism and dishonesty are common traits of our most highly respected leaders...Why do leaders fail their people, their organizations, and even themselves, with unacceptable frequency? Despite almost seventy years of research, thousands of leadership books, and billions of dollars spent, leaders still fail and toxic work environments still prevail...Dr. Pfeffer argues that conventional trends in leadership theory dońt align with the facts and are ineffective for creating change. He addresses the social psychology that influences the traits and behaviors of actual leaders: what we talk about, how we measure (or fail to measure) workplace conditions, and even how we teach leadership...We need to acknowledge that a leadeŕs focus on salary, job tenure and personal power runs contrary to an organizatiońs interests in productivity, employee engagement, revenue and profit growth. Dr. Pfeffer suggests we correlate these outcomes and measure our leaders by the health of their enterprises and the job satisfaction of their people...**Featuring:**..Jeffrey Pfeffer is a Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. He is the author or co-author of 15 books including, Managing with Power: Politics and Influence in Organizations and Power: Why Some People Have It and Others Dońt. Dr. Pfeffer received his BS and MS degrees from Carnegie-Mellon University, and his PhD from Stanford.
