"Leadership Moments: Turning Points That Changed Lives and Organizations" is a succinct and realistic array of life experiences compiled by a wide field of professionals who learned "leadership" in the most profound and varied ways--in an amalgam of varied environments and organizations (e.g., academic, business, combat, sales, etc.). The book is designed as a supplementary text for all higher-level leadership and management courses, as well as general reading. Moreover, the book exemplifies a main tenet about Life everyone should know: "...First you get the experience; then you learn your lesson...!"

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 3, 2007
Format: Paperback
As I began to read this collection of essays, I was reminded of Vince Lombardi's assertion that leaders are made, not born. "And they are made just like anything else that has ever been made in this country -- by hard effort and that's the price we all have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal." I was also reminded of The Managerial Moment of Truth in which Bruce Bodaken and Robert Fritz offer what they characterize as a "gestalt" of mutual exploration and learning. As they explain, the "managerial moment of truth" (MMOT) occurs when a supervisor and someone for whom she or he is directly responsible share a face-to-face interaction during which both are completely honest with each other about a given situation or issue. These interactions can involve praise and recognition for performance "above and beyond the call of duty," constructive criticism offered in response to unacceptable performance or inappropriate behavior, or collaboration on the solution of a problem or obtaining an answer to an especially important question. These and other interactive situations offer unique, potentially invaluable learning opportunities to create a shared experience during which an important truth is revealed. They also nourish mutual respect and trust.

What we have in these ten personal accounts are dozens of "leadership moments" recounted by associates of the ARC Leadership Group, edited by Claire Gerus with an Introduction by Rick Brydges. Each reveals important lessons about leadership in circumstances when difficult choices must be made. In their book Judgment, Noel Tichy and Warren Bennis characterize such decisions as "good judgment calls" that are at "the core, the nucleus of leadership.
