Leadership Lessons From Super Bowl XLII
Source: American Management Association
Super Bowl XLII was a thriller that kept us on the edge of our seats right up until the clock ran out.

The Giants' march to the championship started last summer when head coach Tom Coughlin boldly transformed his style of leadership.

The coach was known for his demanding, rigid, and authoritarian leadership style.
