Summary James G S Clawson is the Johnson and Higgins Professor of Business Administration at the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Virginia. He received degrees from Stanford University (Japanese Language and Literature with great distinction), Brigham Young University (MBA in marketing), and Harvard University Graduate School of Business (DBA Organizational Behavior). A prolific writer on issues of leadership (e.g. Level Three Leadership 4th Edition, Teaching Management, and Creating a Learning Culture), career management, management development and mentoring, Dr Clawson taught for three years at the Harvard Business School before joining the Darden School where he has been since 1981. The balance between work and family life is the single most commonly mentioned issue among senior executives worldwide. This book provides a framework for analyzing immediate and long-term balance. Using case studies of how twelve or more executives in various industries have handled the challenge, readers are invited throughout the volume to compare their current structures with those of the subjects in the cases presented.
