Beware casual leaders — they leave casualties wherever they go! So claims Andy Portsmouth, who has worked for some of the UK’s and Europe’s largest multi-national companies over the past 35 years. Starting as a graduate, he progressed to director before becoming a board-level consultant. The tone of his book is set by the blurb: “Cut through the corporate b*llsh*t. Many organizations are sabotaged from the inside. Their biggest threat is not from competitors but from themselves.” The writing style is down-to-earth with many exclamation marks!
