The Executive and The Elephant
IN THIS SUMMARY
Experience suggests that leaders know how they should behave in different situations, yet they often choose unwise behavior instead. Their intentions and actions are not in alignment. As people cultivate their inner executive, they find greater peace of mind. With regular daily practice, leaders can experience change in the shorter term and enjoy more substantive changes in the longer term. In The Executive and The Elephant, Richard L. Daft discusses different ways that managers and professionals can exert greater control over their minds and behaviors by strengthening their higher intentions.
