It covers what it takes to become a good leader as well as how to develop one from scratch. The main message of the book, as suggested by Tom Rollins, is that CEOs need to realize that their company needs them to be better leaders. They must also realize that it isn’t about them. They have to get out of the business of being the “person” in the corporate hierarchy. They have to get to be an employer.
In this law practice and consulting firm, Tom Rollins takes on the task of heading up a new CEO as well as a law firm’s counsel. Heininger does a very good job of describing the dynamics of the role. There are four key elements that define what a good CEO will need to know. They are vision, passion, knowledge, and caring.
