The Ideal Executive: Why You Cannot Be One and What To Do About It
While many of us want to believe that we are able to complete all tasks as quickly and as well as everyone else, we all are better at some things and worse at others. The first book in the aptly named Leadership Series, The Ideal Executive, is Dr. Adizes method to addressing this point, and an answer to why 'perfect manager' does not, and cannot exist.
With a system of finding managerial styles, and analyzing those styles, Dr. Adizes integrates the methodology of building off of a team's strengths and weaknesses by using the pieces to build a successful whole. Introduced here is the idea of Mutual Trust and Respect among teammates, and motivating, rather than controlling to achieve a the best team performance.
