"From the classroom to the boardroom, Landing in the Executive Chair
is required reading for anyone looking to implement effective leadership strategies. Dr. Henman mines both tried and tested theories, as well as the styles and applications of successful leaders across the spectrum. A must-have to inspire and motivate any organization."
--General Richard B. Myers, Ret., 15th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
"I especially liked the segment on Abraham Lincoln. His leadership and commitment to a cause kept his
Cabinet together. The mark of a good leader in the executive chair is the person who can so train his followers that they say to themselves, 'We don't need him--we can do it ourselves.'"
--Captain James Lovell, Commander, Apollo 13
"The book provides a comprehensive framework of 'must do's' for new CEOs and serves as an important reminder of key tasks for CEOs who have been on the job a while."
--Greg Kozicz, PhD, president & CEO, Alberici Constructors, Inc.
"As a new CEO, I found effective leadership of my board to be a difficult challenge. With the help of Linda's insight and leadership, I am now able to leverage their collective experience and wisdom to improve the quality of my decisions and execution."
--John Stroup, CEO, Belden
