The Opposable Mind free pdf If you want to be as successful as Jack Welch, Larry Bossidy, or Michael Dell, read their autobiographical advice books, right? Wrong, says Roger Martin in "The Opposable Mind". Though following 'best practice' can help in some ways, it also poses a danger: by emulating what a great leader did in a particular situation, you'll likely be terribly disappointed with your own results.

Successful businesspeople engage in what Martin calls integrative thinking creatively resolving the tension in opposing models by forming entirely new and superior ones. Drawing on stories of leaders as diverse as AG Lafley of Procter
