“Learning to Lead is one of the finest books for leaders that I have ever had the opportunity to read. Grounded in proven theory, yet written in action, Bennis and Goldsmith have given anyone who aspires to lead more powerfully and more effectively, a pathway to follow. The pathway they lay out requires work and thought, yet it also calls for the best that you have to give – and as such, has allowed for new levels of self-expression, authenticity, and effectiveness in my own leadership. Clear and concise, yet not simple, it is a book that I will return to again and again.”
Catherine Houser, Executive Vice President of Human Resources, MTV Networks
“They say leaders are born, but leadership is a skill that's bred. Learning to Lead is full of smart, practical thinking on how to unlock the potential for greatness that lies within all of us.”
