Almost all of us have had a bad boss. But some bosses stand out as exceptional -- not just for what they know, but how they nurture new leaders.

Over the last 10 years -- and more than 200 interviews -- Sydney Finkelstein has learned several secrets about leadership.

Those insights are shared in his new book, Superbosses -- a term used to reference leaders who transform entire industries and create new cohorts of leaders.

Finkelstein -- an LSE alum and the Steven Roth Professor of Management at Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business -- will share these insights with the AFLSE DC chapter.

He will also sign copies of his new book at a networking reception following an interview and audience Q&A.
