Most leaders who make it to the top possess characteristics that are all too human: they have politically incorrect attitudes, are conflicted, and play politics to get their way. Written by leading management consultant Anthony F. Smith, The Taboos of Leadership reveals the rarely discussed realities of leadershipâ€”the secrets that leaders just cannot admit to publicly for fear of losing power, selfâ€“respect, or even their jobs. This revelatory book will help both leaders and followers achieve real understanding and coâ€“create a twoâ€“way street culture of openness, trust, and improved performance in their organizations. The Taboos of Leadership discloses ten guarded secrets that leaders canâ€™t discuss, even with their closest constituents, including: charisma shouldnâ€™t make a difference . . . but it does; women make better leaders . . . when thatâ€™s what they really want to do; blatant selfâ€“interest is dangerous . . . in followers, not leaders; thou shalt not play favorites with friends and family . . . except when it makes a lot of sense; and more.
