Praise For Great Leadership: What It Is and What It Takes in a Complex World

A great book for people who want to give serious thought to the application of great leadership. It is for those who are looking for more than superfi cial answers and who are willing to embrace the importance of both character and competenceâ??the two themes around which the book is structured.

Meets current needs of leaders in a way I have not seen anywhere else, providing practical, innovative direction for both novice and expert leaders. The stories of great leaders are inspiring, challenging todayâ??s CEOs to rise above mediocrity.—Dr. Kathy R. Hopkins, CEO, The National Institute for Learning Disabilities

Combines profound insight with a practical and usable framework to exercise great leadership and, in doing so, fills a void in the literature on leadership. I highly recommend this wonderful book.—The Honorable Jack Kemp, Former U.S. Congressman, Cabinet Secretary, and Vice Presidential Candidate
