Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There are a lot of good points in the book. Makes for difficult reading at times due to grammatical structure. I would reccomend reading and getting paper copy so notes and hilights can be made in the pages.

It is a recommended companion to Riiggio and Bass's Transformational Leadership. It is a must read for those who now understand the value of transformational leadership and now have the burning question, How do the best leaders develop ? Are they born that way ? How does the development work ? Avolio answers those questions with research to support his conclusion. Very important work.

By Sarah M. on May 9, 2013
Format: Paperback
We read a large excerpt of this book in a class. It's interesting, more conversational than a lot of the management and leadership focused books we've been assigned. This isn't one for the killers, it's more for leaders who are interested in motivating people with authenticity and personal choices.
