A Bias for Action

How Effective Managers Harness Their Willpower to Achieve Results
About the summary

In A Bias for Action, leadership expert Heike Bruch and management expert Sumantra Ghoshal demonstrate that managers often confuse activity with accomplishments, and motivation with true leadership. Based on the authors’ research across numerous industries, and illustrated with personal case studies from BP, Sony, GE, Philips and others, this summary reveals how great managers get results by engaging their own willpower through a combination of energy and focus. The authors present simple strategies for bolstering willpower and provide ways managers can use the willpower of others to encourage collective action.
