There’s a gung-ho character in The Offsite who’s determined to be “successful even under difficult real-life constraints such as time pressure, high risk and shifting conditions.” Yet, he has trouble getting his team to follow him and ends up being ineffectual as a manager.

And to lead effectively, you must do more than manage objectives, resources and metrics. You must inspire people to want to join you in a worthwhile endeavor. Find out how.
