Editorial Reviews


"Surprisingly easy to read… the writing is straightforward, the chapters are well organized, and summaries at the end of the chapter reiterate key points." (Personnel Psychology, 09/28/2007)


"Jay Alden Conger and Ronald Riggio have brought together a galaxy of sophisticated yet practical experts on leadership, stressing both the complexity and indispensability of both transactional and transforming leadership, with the blessing of the pioneering student of leadership, Bernie Bass."
—James MacGregor Burns, professor emeritus, Willams College, and Pulitzer Prize winner

"Simply the best single resource of readings, ideas, and practices on leadership by the best group of experts you'll ever find in one volume!"
—Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business, University of Southern California and author, On Becoming a Leader

"The Practice of Leadership takes the reader beyond theory and hones in on the best of the best practices for leading organizations. It is a wonderful guide for the executive who aspires to be an exceptional leader!"
—Michael Grindon, president, Sony Pictures Television International

"Jay Conger and Ron Riggio have assembled a long-overdue and comprehensive work on the best practices of leadership. This book makes it clear that leadership can indeed be learned, refined, and enhanced. From the frontline to the executive suite to the boardroom, for social entrepreneurs and CEOs alike, this is a terrific handbook."
—Harry T. McMahon, vice chairman, Merrill Lynch & Company

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for a class but didn't think it was anything particularly special. It is more focused on private corporations behaving ethically and giving back to the community, etc. Certainly not worth the $40 it sells for; if you have to buy it, buy it used!
