What are the traits, tactics, and strategies of the business world's most transformative leaders . . . and what can the rest of us learn from them? In What the Best CEOs Know, leadership authority Jeffrey Krames examines the careers of seven of history's most accomplished CEOs--including in-depth interviews with Michael Dell, Lou Gerstner, and Herb Kelleher--to get candid answers to many of today's most compelling business questions.

The result is a blueprint-like framework that instructs as well as it informs, and provides managers with the firsthand secrets of leadership giants.

Each chapter of What the Best CEOs Know provides innovative features including:

A host of well-known and bestselling books have detailed the success formulas of specific CEOs.

What the Best CEOs Know does exactly that, combining the wisdom, strategies, and tactics of today's most accomplished CEOs into one powerful and one-of-a-kind business resource.
