about this book

What do you do when it’s time to get off the fence?

One of the world’s most noted leadership experts, Michael Useem uses dramatic story­telling to show how to master the art and science of being decisive. He places the reader in the middle of people who faced their go point, when actions–or lack of them–determined the fates of individuals, companies, and countries.

Your students will discover why some decisions were flawless, perfectly on target, and others utterly disastrous. Most of all, they will learn how to make the right calls, whether they are changing careers, launching a product, or deciding on a potential acquisition or merger.
