Editorial Reviews


"This book will help anyone who is charged with a leadership development initiative or is learning about leadership development. Full of practical examples and tools from companies that are known for having a reputation for developing leaders." (Michael Piergrossi, vice president, leadership and organization development, W. R. Grace & Co.)

From the Publisher

During an interview with Warren Bennis he commented on the handbook. "This is the first time I have seen in depth descriptions of what our best companies are doing by way of leadership development, and I don't think there's any other source that is as rich and as helpful to, not just Organization Development people or Human Resource people, but to leaders of leaders than this book. I think it should be on the bookshelf of everybody who is interested in leadership development. I know of nothing like it. I mean, there are a lot of other books on leadership development but none with this detail, none with these vivid illustrations. I look over two hundred books each year, and usually the manuscript form and I really am just very, very impressed by how useful this is, how thoughtful it is. It really does capture in one volume both the trends in leadership development, what seems to be effective, what doesn't seem to be that effective, and especially your emphasis on action based learning. I think to me the most significant contribution of the book is that you have removed the hyphen between leadership development and the business so that business strategy and leadership development are an integrated package." - Warren Bennis Ph.D., University Professor and Distinguished Professor of Business Administration at the University of Southern California and the founding chairman of USC's Leadership Institute.

This is a dense book and at times I felt I had to work through a lot of words to get some of the best ideas. But the ideas are there if you search for them.
