Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Friedman, a former academic and leadership consultant, presents “Total Leadership,” his “four-way” win method that enables a leader to find mutual value at work, at home, in the community, and personally. He explains that his views are not work-life balance, which he considers a zero-sum game. Using exercises, stories, charts, and lists, the author describes Total Leadership as a program for becoming a leader who acts with authenticity by determining what is important, who acts with integrity by respecting all parts of his life, and who acts with creativity by experimenting to find new solutions. Claiming leadership can and must be learned, the author offers step-by-step instructions for using his principles to produce stronger business results while having a richer life and creating opportunities for others. Although this book appears to be a manual for client seminars and an infomercial for his consulting activities, Friedman nevertheless offers thoughtful insight into important leadership qualities that will improve results while allowing for a fulfilling life for leaders and their followers. --Mary Whaley

Destined to be a classic, this is a remarkable book.  I have studied leadership and led organizations for over twenty years.  No other book has reshaped my thinking about leadership development as much as Total Leadership.
