How can professionals - engineers, physicians, accountants, lawyers, IT-experts but also secretaries and craftsmen - prepare themselves for a promotion to a management position? The time to read and digest the vast amount of available literature on management is often not available.

Lex van Gunsteren - one of the pioneers of the Rotterdam School of Management, teachting innovation and crisis management - offers an alternative:

Lead your people as if you were the leader, the Alpha, of a herd in nature:
* Know how and when to grand privileges to lower ranked staff members and workers
* Develop effective leadership fitting your own character and comfort zone
* Learn from the many examples of applying the rules of nature
