Four Ways To Improve Your Management Style

Remain aloof; when approached, don’t depart from your official script.
Do you Sisu? Sisu is a Finnish term for doing what it takes to get things done. It embodies qualities of will, perseverance, and endurance, and places high value on building an organization that leverages the collective strength of its people. In the book, Higher Ambition: How Great Leaders Create Economic and Social Value (Harvard Business Review Press/Available in September), lead authors Michael Beer and Flemming Norrgren explore this concept in depth. They compare and contrast the business as usual approach to corporate life with the more strategically focused Sisu approach. Whether you’re already a manager or are seeking to advance professionally, Sisu can help enhance your sense of presence, fairness, clarity and persistence. Beer is a professor of business administration (Emeritus) at Harvard Business School and chairman of TruePoint Partners, a consultancy. Norrgren is a professor at Chalmers University in Sweden and a director of the TruePoint Center in Europe. For more about the book, click here.
