Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
"People in both in this country and around the world have an enormous hunger for ideas; that's why three years ago the Drucker Foundation launched 'Leader to Leader', a journal of ideas by leaders for leaders."Frances Hesselbein writes, "This hunger among millions of working executives demonstrates their concern for the future and a commitment to make a difference. The incisive thinkers and remarkable leaders who have contributed to the journal and to this book open doors, spark ideas, raise signal flags, and help satisfy that universal hunger."
In this context, I summarized partially only four of the thirty-seven essays written by talented thinkers as follows:
I. Peter F. Drucker writes: "The three people from whom I learned the most in my work were all very different. The first two were exceptionally demanding; the third was exceptionally brillant. All three taught me a lot...Five lessons I learned from those remarkable men still apply today:
1. Treat people differently, based on their strengths.
2. Set high standards, but give people the freedom and responsibility to do their job.
3. Performance review must be honest, exacting, and an integral part of the job.
4. People learn the most when teaching others.
5. Effective leaders earn respect-but they don't need to be liked.
II. Doris Kearns Goodwin lists ten lessons from the stories of Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Franklin Roosevelt for leaders of today's organizations.
1. Timing is (almost) everything.
2. Anything is possible if you share the glory.
3. Trust, once broken, is seldom restored.
4. Leadership is about building connections.
5. Leaders learn from their mistakes.
6. Confidence-not just in oneself-counts.

Format: Hardcover
Hesselbein and Cohen have assembled and brilliantly edited "enduring insights on leadership" from the Drucker Foundation's award-winning journal. What a superb selection of essays they offer! The Introduction by Hesselbein (all by itself) is well worth the cost of the book. As for the 37 individual essays, they are organized within seven Parts:
I. On Leaders and Leadership (eg Peter Drucker, Max DePree, and Herb Kelleher)
II. Leading Innovation and Transformation (eg Peter M. Senge, John P. Kotter, and Douglas K. Smith)
III. Leadership in the New Information Economy (eg Esther Dyson, Margaret Wheatley, and Kevin Kelly)
IV. Competitive Strategy in a Global Economy (eg Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Ann Winblad, and Keniche Ohmae)
V. Leading for High Performance (eg Steven R. Covey, Jim Collins, and Noel Tichy)
VI. Building Great Teams (eg Warren Bennis, Jon R. Katzenbach, and J. Richard Hackman)
VII. Leadership Across the Sectors (eg John W. Gardner, Regina Hetzlinger, and James E. Austin)
I know of no other single volume in which so many great business thinkers are represented by so many of their landmark essays. The editors are to be commended for the selections; also for the structure within which those selections are organized. This is "must reading" for leaders and, especially, for whose who aspire to be leaders.

Format: Hardcover
I have read many of these chapters in their web form on the Drucker Foundation site. Now everyone can use their Reader's Guide and enjoy 37 chapters by Peter Drucker, Warren Bennis, Frances Hesselbein, Rosabeth Moss Kanter, and others.
These chapters explore leadership, innovation, and leading transition. I loved the chapter by Doris Kearns Goodwin, and the interview with Max De Pree.
I'm nominating this book for my leadership book club.
