WHAT'S A LEADERSHIP MANDATE AND HOW CAN YOU DEFINE IT?
This White Paper is based on speeches that Larry Stybel has given around the country. It is being turned into an invited HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW article. Core themes:
1. Job Descriptions are often fatally incomplete or deliberately misleading. What can be done about it?
2. Managing a "Good to Great" mandate like a turnaround is going to cause pain and waste money. What are concrete ways to manage a Good to Great Mandate?
3. How can companies avoid giving "Stealth Turnaround" mandates to new leaders? A "Stealth Turnaround" mandate guarantees leadership failure.
