What might be the relationship between a leader's effectiveness or ineffectiveness and the output (quality, productivity, creativity) of the science? Responses from five expert panels of scientists illuminate what life at the bench is like under an effective leader and under an ineffective leader. In addition, these responses identify scientists' own most difficult leadership problems, which are used to inform the content of this book.
