The Leadership Machine was designed to help you and your organization produce successive waves of take-your-breath-away managers and leaders-and give you and your organization a competitive edge. Mike Lombardo and Bob Eichinger wrote The Leadership Machine after countless requests from people who heard their presentations on leadership development. The Leadership Machine is an easy-to-read handbook that's useful at every stage of individual, supervisory, management, and executive development. The book provides what you need to know to develop yourself and others; describes the best practices in succession planning, 360o feedback, development systems, and assignment management; and reviews the research of successful and unsuccessful applications.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for managers January 16, 2004
By A Customer
I have read the The Leadership Machine and other books by the authors. This book is a great tool for managers, Human Resources professional, and anyone who is in a position to help people develop professionally. This book is not your typical managerial self-help book; you won't find any fables or references to FISH here. If you are looking for a guide to developing people in your organization based on research and the experience of the authors this is the book for you. I have used this book to plan my own development and to help others think about their development. If you are going to read this book I would recommend you purchase For Your Improvement (FYI) as well. This is a great starting point, but be aware this is only the tip of the iceberg for what these Lominger offerings can do for you and your company. My organization has worked with Lominger for a number for years and have had great success implementing their strategies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Use this book to Develop Yourself May 28, 2007
Downside is few visuals and no color printing inside.

The best book on the Leadership Development concept & practice. Should be part of any HR degree curiculum covering leadership development.

MUST READ for people who want to development themselves, line managers and aspiring HR professionals.

Challenges many long held assumptions and written in a no-nonsense, engaging sometimes ironic way such as "12 surefire ways to derail your worst enemy".

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides a Roadmap for Success August 3, 2005
I've used this book many times to educate Leaders in organizations how to build a leadership pipeline and WHY it is important. This is one of the best "sleeper" books on the subject of leadership development, the business case behind succession planning and what a company can do about it. I've worked with the tools from their company for years with great success.
