Mary Kelly, Phd (@marykellyspeaks on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss her book “Why Leaders Fail“. There are plenty of books on how to lead but they often leave out the most important part: What happens when what you’re doing isn’t working?. Thankfully, Mary and her writing partner for this book Peter Stark (no known relation to Tony or Ned) decided to write “Why Leaders Fail: 7 Prescriptions to Success” to help understand common themes to leadership failure. Craig and Mary talk about being popular vs. being a leader, having vision, why Ted Williams was a great leader as a player but not so much as a manager and how corporations need more empathy. A 20 year naval officer, Mary understand leadership and with a PhD in economics she know business. Add the two and you have a powerful combination you need to listen to if you want to improve your leadership skills!
