What drives and moves people to assume leadership roles at the top of an organisation? In Leiderschap en motivatie (Leadership and Motivation), Ber Damen formulates an answer to this intriguing question. On the basis of interviews with seventy members of the executive management boards of twenty-five large Dutch organisations, he maps out the motivations, motives and backgrounds of Dutch top managers.

The result is a captivating and useful book. Captivating, because Damen is the first to offer a well-grounded analysis of the motivation driving the Dutch top manager; useful, because his analysis also leads to a series of recommendations that can be applied in actual practice.
