Becoming the Boss

by Lindsey Pollak


There are a few common threads in books, and one of the biggest is how fast our world is changing. We all have to work pretty hard to keep up, and leaders are no exception to this rule. What worked well for the greats of the past, like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, doesn't always apply today. Technology is changing the way we communicate and learn so fast that it's a wonder any of us can keep up - let alone those at the top.

In Lindsey Pollak's Becoming the Boss: New Rules for the Next Generation of Leaders, you'll learn what you need to succeed as a leader, and how to remain malleable enough to change and improve according to the modern world.
