Although my days in the corporate world are long behind me, when I was gifted this little, management book by Aditi Chopra, about Leading Without Authority, I was fascinated and very keen to read it.
As a corporate Accountant for much of my professional career, I was almost always in the position of trying to lead various line managers to successful conclusions, without have any real authority over them. For this reason, I found Chopra's clear and concise thoughts on how to achieve this best, very enlightening.
This is no heavy, management tome but what it is, is a collection of thoughts and ideas how best to ensure that people will follow your leadership regardless of the authority you may or may not have over them.
I can imagine many a young executive finding him or herself in this very position and I could see some of Chopra's idea as being a godsend for that person. I loved the easy was this book was set out and I can only recommend it highly to any manager or management aspirant. A useful tool for anyone to have in their management arsenal. Good job!
