Quotes & Awards

  • 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.”

    Doug Willmorem cheif administrative officer, Salt Lake County

Now, just when the demand for excellence is greatest, this modern classic by Goldsmith and Bennis gives leaders of every stripe direct access to great mastery from one who knows you perfectly in your highest aspirations—yourself. Live with this book. Use it to recalibrate your inner compass as you step boldly forward into the greatest adventure of your life.”

    Raz Ingrasci, president & CEO, Hoffman Institute

    " I can't stand this book. It is far too leftist for me. Definitely not an 'objective' view of leadership, but rather incredibly biased. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jocelyn | 10/30/2010

    " This workbook lets you explore issues like leadership qualities, personal values, influences, leadership paradigms, vision, goals, and strategies. The main idea: Leaders are made, not born. In other words, you can learn to be a leader. Very helpful. "
