Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) December 16, 2005
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a professional association and educator in talent management strategies, announced today that Dr. Sydney Finkelstein, Tuck professor, best-selling author, and international thought leader, will join HCI’s inaugural National Human Capital Summit, to be held in Chicago April 6-7.
Day one of the Summit, Dr. Finkelstein will present “The Seven Habits of Highly Unsuccessful People,” a session that will explore how seemingly beneficial habits and so-called positive leadership traits can actually make smart, previously successful people go wrong.
“Business circumstances sometimes require alternative approaches to leadership,” said Allan Schweyer, HCI’s Executive Director. “In his work, Syd Finkelstein has focused on why success may actually depend on deviating from the status quo.”
Sydney Finkelstein is the Steven Roth Professor of Management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, where he teaches Strategy & Management courses. His group is one of the highest rated at Tuck, and it has helped propel Dartmouth’s Tuck School to near the top in recent business school rankings—including the number one spot in the most recent Wall Street Journal list.
Widely known as one of the top authorities on strategy and leadership, Finkelstein is the author of “Why Smart Executives Fail,” a book based on a six-year study of top global companies and their business leaders. Hailed worldwide and translated into 11 languages, the book has been called “a marvel” by The Wall Street Journal.
Every year, Sydney Finkelstein gives talks throughout America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. He is known for his ability to address a wide range of audiences in an entertaining fashion, and for the depth and authority he brings to the subject of learning from corporate mistakes and failures.
