Leadership by Rudolph W Giuliani ( Book )
35 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 4,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rudolph Giuliani demonstrates in [this book] how the leadership skills he practices can be employed successfully by anyone who has to run anything. After all, until the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center pushed him into an unwanted role in history, Giuliani was only months away from leaving office with a reputation as one of the most effective mayors New York had ever seen. Having inherited a city ravaged by crime and crippled in its ability to serve its citizens, Giuliani shows how he found that every aspect of his career up to that point from clerking for the formidable judge who demanded excellence (and rewarded it with a lifetime of loyalty) to busting organized crime during his years as a federal attorney shaped his thinking about leadership and prepared him for the daunting challenges ahead. Giuliani's successes in turn strengthened his conviction about the core qualities required to be an effective leader, no matter what the size of the organization, be it an international corporation or a baseball team. In detailing his principles of leadership, Giuliani tells captivating stories that are personal as well as prescriptive: how he learned the importance of staying calm in the face of attack from his father's boxing lessons as well as the need to stand up to bullies; how a love of reading was early instilled in him by his mother and grew into a determination to master new subjects, and not rely on only the word of experts; how, in his recent fight with prostate cancer, learning to make decisions at the right time and with the right information reflected decision-making on a larger scale. [In the book], Giuliani writes, works both ways: it is a privilege, but it carries responsibilities from imposing a structure suitable to an organization's purpose, to forming a team of people who bring out the best in each other, to taking the right, unexpected risks ... He never knew that the qualities he describes would be put to the awful test of September 11, he says; but he never doubted that they would prevail.-Dust jacket

Rudolph W. Giuliani, bis Januar 2002 Bürgermeister von New York, hat nach dem Anschlag vom 11. September 2001 durch Umsicht und Besonnenheit seine Stadt vor dem absoluten Kollaps bewahrt. In diesem sehr persönlichen Buch erläutert er, woher er die Kraft dazu nahm: Er griff bei dieser schier unlösbaren Aufgabe auf jene Grundsätze zurück, die er als Chef der einst als unregierbar geltenden Stadt erfolgreich erprobt hatte. Seine Führungsregeln, so Giuliani, sind das Geheimnis jedes erfolgreichen Managements im Zentrum stehen Teamwork und durchsichtige Entscheidungsstrukturen, Berechenbarkeit, Ehrlichkeit und kritische Loyalität. Die Einhaltung dieser Regeln hat Giuliani das Vertrauen seiner Stadt eingebracht und ihn zum souverän agierenden Entscheidungsträger gemacht. Der AutorRudolph W. Giuliani war zunächst als Staatsanwalt tätig, bevor er 1993 und abermals 1997 zum Bürgermeister von New York gewählt wurde. Im Januar 2002 übergab er sein Amt an seinen Nachfolger. Er lebt in Manhattan. Für seinen engagierten Einsatz in den Tagen nach dem Terroranschlag von New York wurde er mit zahlreichen Ehrungen bedacht. U. a. wurde er 2001 vom "Time"Magazin zum "Mann des Jahres" gewählt, von der Queen zum Ritter geschlagen und erhielt im Februar 2002 den "Deutschen Medienpreis"
