A VCR, a great movie, a tub of popcorn and a Management Goes to the Movies Study Guide . . . management training doesn't get any better, easier or more fun than this!

"MOVIES FOR LEADERS: MANAGEMENT LESSONS FROM FOUR ALL-TIME GREAT FILMS" is the first volume in a series of self-study guides aimed at helping managers cope with difficult situations and improve day-to-day performance. This guide uses the movies "Hoosiers," "The Wizard of Oz," "Moby Dick" and "The Bridge on the River Kwai" to help managers sharpen their leadership skills, train their staffs to lead, think through key leadership issues and enliven their business presentations. The guide also contains references to online quizzes from where, after reading the book, readers can take an online examination and earn a Hollywood MBA (Master of Bijou Advice) in Leadership.

Based on a corporate-training program developed by Shaun O'L. Higgins and Colleen Striegel and used in their companies for more than 15 years, "Movies for Leaders" also features an introductory essay on business as portrayed on screen from the 1930s to the 1990s.

"Movies for Leaders" presents reel business lessons for real business performance. Among the lessons in its pages:

* Why "The Wizardof Oz" is one of the greatest leadership training films ever made.
* How minor strengths can blind you to a manager's major weaknesses.
* Why you can't afford not to train every member of your team.
* How to develop a mission statement employees can march to.

Each chapter is filled with practical lessons on the keys to leadership, including motivational skills, decision making, judgment, planning, competitive strategy, ethics, communication and team building. Each chapter also features helpful sidebars with information about the movie, illustrative examples from actual businesses and elaborations on key concepts.
