The book that reveals how today's most successful leaders turn vision into reality - featuring profiles of Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, Reed Hastings, Mike Lawrie, and more.

Consensus. Negotiation. Compromise. A democratic approach to leadership drives most organizations today. Consensus based decision making may be popular, but it is far from the best approach in business. It's also rarely the right approach for C-level executives - especially now that digital technology is driving real business disruption. Simply put, consensus is an innovation killer.

The most successful, disruptive companies are propelled forward by mandate-driven leaders. These leaders are inspired by a compelling belief, idea, strategy, or tactic. Through their willpower, organizations are thrust into the future. The mandate-driven leadership model is the hallmark of visionaries who have changed entire industries and sustained consistent innovation in their own companies.

The Power of Mandate reveals what it takes to be an effective leader in today's disruptive business environment. You'll learn how the most audacious visionaries managed turn their visions into reality.
