Professional organizations - such as accounting and consulting firms, law firms, and investment banks - are fundamental to the functioning of the global economy. Yet many of the most powerful are notoriously private. This book uncovers the complex, messy, and surprisingly emotional challenges of leading professional organizations - revealing the realities that lies beneath the 'professional' surface which these organizations present to the outside world. Individual professionals - highly educated, highly intelligent, and highly opinionated - are generally reluctant to see themselves as followers and may be equally reluctant to put themselves forward as leaders. They value their autonomy and confer authority on their leaders on a highly contingent basis. How does a professional come to be seen as a leader within a professional organization? How do leaders maintain their position once they have reached the top of their organization? How do they navigate the complex power relationships among their professional colleagues and actually get things done? Leading Professionals: Power, Politics, and Prima Donnas analyses the complex power dynamics and interpersonal politics that lie at the heart of leadership in professional organizations. It is based on Laura Empson's scholarly research into the world's leading professional organizations across a range of sectors, including interviews with over 500 senior professionals in 16 countries. It draws on the latest organizational and leadership theory to analyse in detail exactly how professionals come together to create 'leadership'. It identifies how change happens within professional organizations and explains why their leaders so often fail.

For too long, professional services firms have relied on the “producer-manager” model, which works well in uncomplicated business environments. However, today’s managing directors must balance often conflicting roles, more demanding clients, tougher competitors, and associates with higher expectations of partners at all levels. When Professionals Have to Lead presents an overarching framework better suited to such complexity. It identifies the four critical activities for effective PSF leadership: setting strategic direction, securing commitment to this direction, facilitating execution, and setting a personal example. Through examples from consulting practices, accounting firms, investment banks, and other professional service organizations, industry veterans DeLong, Gabarro, and Lees show how this model works to: • Align your firm’s culture and key organizational components. • Satisfy your clients’ needs without sacrificing essential managerial responsibilities. • Address matters of size, scale, and complexity while maintaining the qualities that make professional services firms unique. A valuable new resource, this book redefines the role of leadership in professional services firms.

The American Dream stands for freedom. It stands for the opportunity for prosperity and success and an upward social mobility for your family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers. It's one of the main reasons people move to the United States.However, many young Americans believe that the American Dream is dying, or that it's already dead. In other words, they believe the opportunities their parents once had are no longer available to them.History shows that we're constantly evolving, as individuals and as a society. In the workforce, the skills required for a successful career today may not be the same for tomorrow. But it's our willingness to learn new skills, by putting in the effort to learn something new, that makes us grow as professionals, and as human beings. We must not be afraid of failure.This book contains six in-depth interviews I've conducted with some of America's leading professionals in different industries. The focus of these interviews is around their professional lives and the habits they've formed that have contributed to their success, both in business and in life. I've also collected their thoughts on the American Dream and whether or not they believe it's still alive. I was truly inspired by what they had to say, and I hope you'll be inspired as well.Life is full of opportunities. But we must have the awareness to see them, the courage to pursue them, and the perseverance to see them through. We will face many setbacks on our journey, but it's the determination to get back up, after we've been knocked down, that will make the difference between success and failure. Although industries will rise and fall, the American Dream is not dead. These interviews serve as proof.
