I wrote about a new Game of Thrones book for the 3/1 issue of Fortune. No, it's not about The Winds of Winter. Sorry.
However, for those looking for clues and hints about how to be a better manager as well as subtext in pivotal conversations in Westeros—or both!—then you should consider reading Win or Die: Leadership Secrets From Game of Thrones (Thomas Dunne Books) from Columbia Business School professor Bruce Craven.
Here’s an excerpt from my review:
Would-be senior managers looking to hone their people skills might glean more as Craven breaks down step-by-step exercises in self-advocacy, social awareness, and relationship management. And, despite what Cersei Lannister says, there is still a middle ground—at least, according to Craven, when you lead with adaptability and support colleagues with confidence.
The full review can be read online or in the March 2019 issue, on newsstands now.
