As an educator, he taught organizational studies at Harvard University, Boston University, and the M.I.T. Sloan School of Management.

He wrote more than 30 books on leadership including On Becoming a Leader, Leaders: Strategies for Taking Charge, and Why Leaders Can't Lead. He also wrote a memoir entitled Still Surprised.
