Burke (Teacher's College, Columbia U.) and William Trahant (partner with Pricewaterhouse-Coopers) reveal that today the craft of change leadership is as much a human art as it is a management science. They discuss how it requires imagination and emotional involvement on a leader's part as much as it does discipline and focus, and how it relies as much on a leader's personal openness to new learning as it does on enthusiastic employees. In the profiles of the authors' clients, the reader learns how leaders of major businesses such as British Airways, Allied Signal and SmithKline Beecham successfully transformed their enterprises.
