What Happens Now?: Reinvent Yourself as a Leader Before Your Business Outruns You
by John Hillen and Mark Nevins

Few leaders will admit it, but again and again the growth of their organizations outruns their skills.

Because you invariably neglect the new political, personal, strategic, and interpersonal skills needed to manage yourself and others. Predictable and inevitable, your stall then escalates into a crisis.
