Gavin Esler is best known for his journalism on BBC’s Newsnight and Dateline London. In the course of his career he’s met many of the greats: Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, world leaders and statesmen and women. He’s also met cultural leaders and celebrities who leverage their power through their following. Esler identifies a common thread used by all powerful leaders – the ability to tell stories, to convince people of their aim or mission. In Lessons from the Top, he illustrates how the mighty craft their personas through stories – and sell them to us, propelling themselves to even greater heights.
Useful whether you’re applying for a job or simply interested in power and progression, Lessons from the Top is brilliantly readable, gives clear analysis of those we aspire to be, and has plenty of application for everyday life.
