From the Author

This book supports the idea that 'leadership' is a phenomenon created through interdependent and distinct variables in the situation, the person, and the person's ability to appropriately respond to the situation. Leadership is not the result of a 'list of traits' and getting a certain score in a psychometric test is no guarantee of leadership behavior, although biopharmaceutical executives may find that lists and tests can be useful tools in their own leadership development.

The study conducted for this book also found singular ideas on 'leadership' problematic and identified leadership experiences as dependent on variables beyond the executives themselves. In fact, many of the executives interviewed in this book have worked for chief executives who, by popular 'personality' standards, appeared to be angry, withdrawn, uncommunicative, antagonistic, and awkward - words that we would never find in a 'list of leadership personality traits.'

Yet the chief executive officers who easily fall at the far end of the 'charisma' spectrum somehow rose to the upper echelons of organizations and were capable of developing productive working relationships with their subordinates. Of course, one may suggest that these CEOs' successes rested on the 'leadership aptitudes' of their subordinate executives who had found a way to 'draw out the best' from their chief executives, but this again becomes another attempt to isolate 'leadership' into a personality or individual embodiment rather than a phenomenon of interdependent variables that includes the executives themselves.

In the biopharmaceutical industry, the leadership debate goes one step farther, to include subject-matter expertise as part of the equation, and asks who would make a 'better' leader - a scientist or a businessman?
