  • Sydney Finkelstein

    finkelstein.jpgProfessor Finkelstein has published over 25 books and 90 articles, with several bestsellers, including Why Smart Executives Fail. The Wall Street Journal called it “a marvel – a jargon-free business book based on serious research that offers genuine insights with clarity and sometimes even wit.” SUPERBOSSES: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent was published in 2016 and also went on to become a bestseller and one of Amazon’s top books of the year. The result of a ten-year research project, Superbosses profiles leaders as diverse as Julian Robertson, Alice Waters, and Lorne Michaels who all have one thing in common – they helped spawn some of the best talent in their industries. The book describes what they did and how they did it, offering teachable lessons for leaders of any organization. His most recent book is The Superbosses Playbook, offering a toolkit of practical exercises and activities to enable any manager to become a superboss leader.

    Professor Finkelstein is a consultant and speaker to senior executives around the globe, as well as an executive coach, focusing on leadership, talent development, corporate governance, learning from mistakes, and strategies for growth. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Management and listed on the “Thinkers 50”, the world's most prestigious ranking of leadership gurus. He has been featured in the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Harvard Business Review, Business Week, the London Times, Toronto Globe and Mail, IncFast Company, and CNBC, is a columnist for the BBC, and the host of his new podcast, "The Sydcast."
