The eight true stories in Leading Up show that leaders today aren't just bosses, they re self-starters who take charge even when they haven t been given a charge. In this book, leadership expert and Wharton School professor of management Michael Useem offers instructive accounts of this vital and unexplored facet of leadership. Drawing on extraordinary examples of real people -- from Civil War generals to Mount Everest mountaineers to CEOs of companies like Charles Schwab & Co. and Compaq -- Useem shows what happens when those not in charge rise to the challenge, and what happens when those who should step forward fail to do so.

Readers of books like The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership and Leading Change, as well as Useem's own The Leadership Moment (53,000 combined copies sold), will devour this innovative advice on how to make your boss -- and yourself -- a success.

From the Publisher:
Today’s best leaders know how to lead up, a necessary strategy when a supervisor is micromanaging rather than macrothinking, when a division president offers clear directives but can’t see the future, or when investors demand instant gain but need long-term growth. Through vivid, compelling stories, Michael Useem reveals how upward leadership can transform incipient disaster into hard-won triumph. For example, U.S. Marine Corps General Peter Pace reconciled the conflicting priorities of six bosses by keeping them well informed and challenging their instructions when necessary. Useem also explores what happens when those who should step forward fail to do so—Mount Everest mountaineers might have saved themselves from disaster during a fateful ascent if only they had questioned their guides’ flawed decisions.

Leading Up is a call to action. It asks us to get results by helping our superiors lead and by building on the best in everybody’s nature, and it offers a pragmatic blueprint for doing so.
