Transforming Toxic Leaders looks at how to turn difficult leaders to your advantage, and describes how skillful anticipation, control and handling of troubled and difficult leaders can turn them into potential assets.
'Toxic' leaders may be a fact of company life, but they needn't spell disaster. Transforming Toxic Leaders spells out the advantages to be gained from skilful anticipation, control, and handling of troubled and difficult leaders. Unlike other books, Transforming Toxic Leaders takes issue with the idea that toxic leaders are always bad and destructive to their companies. It suggests that even highly productive leaders have some toxic qualities central to their success story. It argues that toxic leaders should be viewed not just as villains and liabilities, but also considered as potential assets, innovators and even rebels. Transforming Toxic Leaders shows that a successful company doesn't dwell on the perceived destructive impact of toxic leaders, but should come up with resourceful, innovative strategies for turning seeming deficits into opportunities.
