Managership is not leadership. This is the message of "A Leadership Vacuum." Drawing on the experiences of the author with Fortune 500 companies across the country, this book examines trends in American business today that act to de-emphasize leadership in favor of management techniques and practices. This trend is accelerating and, unless halted, will inevitably bring American business to second-class status in a global economy. Anyone who reads this book and has been involved with how American companies now operate, will find the situations and practices illuminated in this book chillingly familiar. The reason for this is that leadership is a dying occupation in American business. There is a way out, and it is through leadership becoming part of the American business paradigm again. This book is a clarion call for that Renaissance.
