Movies have something that goes beyond their capacity to entertain. A good film can also teach. Charles Foster Kane, the tragic protagonist of Citizen Kane, is an example of how hoarding power can lead to chaos in business and personal matters. Dead Poets Society's John Keating is the archetype of the employee who has affected change downward but has not solicited the support of superiors who may later stonewall other projects.Readers will discover that film is indeed an untapped source of leadership wisdom for business. Through reading about ten films, they will see their own organizations -- as well as their own management and leadership challenges -- mirrored in the compelling and accessible stories told in these great films.-- Like such business bestsellers as Leadership Secrets from Attila the Hun, this is an entertaining, accessible, and beautifully packaged business gift book-- Clemens's corporate clients include Merrill Lynch, Merck, Marriott Hotels, Vanguard, and Disney-- Clemens's Classic Leadership Cases "RM", have been adopted by more than 350 business schools
