Nightly Business Report Presents Lasting Leadership
Two of the world’s leaders in business knowledge and insight come together to select and profile the 25 most influential businesspeople of the past quarter century. The team: Nightly Business Report, the US Number 1 daily TV business news programme and Knowledge@Wharton, The Wharton School’s online journal of research and business analysis. The book’s incisive profiles show exactly how each business leader became so influential. They teach lessons you can use to discover, refine, and nurture your own leadership style and gain powerful influence in your own career. You’ll gain new insights into reknowned familiar faces such as Jack Welch, Richard Branson, and Bill Gates. But you’ll also gain greater appreciation for less heralded individuals from Mary Kay’s Mary Kay Ash, to Mohammed Yunus, whose ‘microlending’ revolution is helping millions of poor people around the world transform themselves into entrepreneurs. No other book offers this much actionable insight into this many extraordinary business leaders.
