    Author, Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent*
    A superboss is a boss who helps other people accomplish more than they ever thought possible.
    —Sydney Finkelstein

    When you help other people get better on your team … the payoff to you is exponential, because you’re now surrounded by superstars.
    —Sydney Finkelstein

    Superbosses will regularly create a job for a person when they didn’t even have the job open in the first place … wherever they go, they’re on the lookout for great talent.
    —Sydney Finkelstein

    Superbosses are not afraid of making a bad hire.
    —Sydney Finkelstein

    Superbosses are always looking for talent that is the absolute best, and and they know they need to look in places that the average person isn’t.
    —Sydney Finkelstein
