Full Description

With a new introduction by the authorWarren Bennis's formative years, in the 1930s and '40s, were characterized by severe economic hardship and a world war that showcased the extreme depths and heights to which leaders could drive their followers. Today's environment is similarly chaotic, turbulent, and uncertain.

This new edition features a provocative introduction on the challenges and opportunities facing leaders today, with additional updates and current references throughout.
