When Professionals Have to Lead

A New Model for High Performance

The Cankerworm of Memphis

Dr. John Benoit is a French-Canadian archaeologist come to explore and study ancient Memphis, Egypt. He is certain that something strange is going on in the underground caverns beneath the pyramids, and he is determined to find out what it is. But what will he find there? This is the first part of Egyptos, a series.

When Professionals Have to Lead presents an overarching framework better suited to such complexity. It identifies the four critical activities for effective PSF leadership: setting strategic direction, securing commitment to this direction, facilitating execution, and setting a personal example. Through examples from consulting practices, accounting firms, investment banks, and other professional service organizations, industry veterans DeLong, Gabarro, and Lees show how this model works to:
• Align your firm’s culture and key organizational components.
• Satisfy your clients’ needs without sacrificing essential managerial responsibilities.
• Address matters of size, scale, and complexity while maintaining the qualities that make professional services firms unique.

A valuable new resource, this book redefines the role of leadership in professional services firms.
