Management expert Jeffrey Pfeffer says “the leadership industry has failed.” He believes that too many businesses collapse and too many employees disengage because of bad leaders and misguided advice. Pfeffer makes the case for reforming leadership evaluation and training in his new book, “Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time.”
