The key to success lies in getting to the top. Right? Wrong.Not everyone can be in charge but- more importantly- not everyone should want to be. Richard Hytner- deputy chairman of Saatchi & Saatchi- thinks its time to celebrate the second-in-command- the consiglieri: Merlin to King Arthur- Al Gore to Bill Clinton- Rasputin to the Russian Royal Family. These are the deputies- Vice-Presidents- Chief Operating Officers- Chief Financial Officers- Department Heads- First Lieutenants and First Violins whose influence determines the fate of countries- companies and individual ventures all over the world.After all- supremacy comes with drawbacks (one of which is that everyone wants your job) and influence- authority and power can be found in much more interesting places than behind the CEOs desk. Consiglieri brings together historical examples from Thomas Cromwell to Cardinal Richelieu- conversations with the second-in-commands of Tony Blair and Sir Alex Ferguson- insights into Stalin- JFK- Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore- interviews with leaders in sport- business- politics and music and cutting-edge research from psychologists and academics to produce a fresh (and refreshing) approach to leadership in the mould of Obliquity or Thinking- Fast and Slow.If you fancy yourself as a contemporary Machiavelli or Bismarck- make this stylish- clever and entertaining guide to finding your ideal role in a company your first choice. This is the first (not second) funny business book for a long time.... Please click here to ask a question
