Summary Description

What separates truly great leaders from ordinary executives? In Great Employees Only, Dale Dauten reveals exactly how the people he calls “gifted bosses” continually upgrade their teams, showing you how to emulate their tactics to achieve stunning success.

Dauten writes two newspaper columns nationally syndicated by King Features and is the author of The Gifted Boss. He headed a marketing research firm whose clients include McDonald’s, Procter & Gamble, and 3M. And as the founder of The Innovator’s Lab, he has done creativity work with such organizations as Georgia-Pacific, Caterpillar, General Dynamics, and NASA.

After studying hundreds of leaders, Dauten discovered the best practices that drive superior leadership. This summary will teach you what it takes to:

  • Transform employees into lifelong allies;
  • Replace the act of firing with the graceful art of “de-hiring”;
  • Find great people in the “underground” talent market;
  • Master the fundamentals of contrarian hiring; and
  • Enjoy the benefits of effortless leadership.
