Contents: Foreword / Steven M. Bornstein --
Introduction --
Taboos and leadership --
Secret 1: We know what leadership looks like (but we don't know what it takes) --
Taboos of persuasion --
Secret 2: Charisma shouldn't make a difference (but it does) --
Secret 3: Real leaders don't play politics (they take it very seriously) --
Secret 4: Women make better leaders (when that's what they really want to do) --
Taboos of position --
Secret 5: The double standard is for cavemen (and the corner office) --
Secret 6: Thou shalt not play favorites with friends and family (except when it makes a lot of sense) --
Secret 7: A leader's fundamental duty is to groom a successor (but it hurts like hell) --
Taboos of the person --
Secret 8: Leaders need to demonstrate work-life balance (no problem, work is their life) --
Secret 9: Blatant self-interest is dangerous (in followers, not leaders) --
Secret 10: It's lonely at the top (but leaders wouldn't have it any other way) --
Our taboos are exposed, so now what?
Responsibility: Anthony F. Smith ; foreword by Steven M. Bornstein.
