Sydney Finkelstein is the Steven Roth Professor of Management and Director of the Center for Leadership at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

Professor Finkelstein, a well-known thought leader and speaker on leadership and strategy, has published 23 books and several bestsellers, including the #1 bestseller in the U.S. and Japan, 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 … It should be required reading not just for executives but for investors as well.”

His latest bestselling book is Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent, the result of a ten-year research project on some of the most intriguing business leaders in the world who all have one thing in common – they helped develop the best talent in their industry sectors, who in turn helped them become the legendary successes they are today. What they did, and how they did it, are shared via fascinating profiles and nine management practices that separate the best bosses from the merely good ones. As LinkedIn Chairman Reid Hoffman put it, Superbosses is “a leadership guide for the Networked Age.”
