Leading for a Lifetime: How Defining Moments Shape Leaders of Today and Tomorrow
Warren G. Bennis and Robert J. Thomas
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Today's young leaders grew up in the glow of television and computers; the leaders of their grandparents' generation in the shadow of the Depression and World War II. In Leading for a Lifetime, Warren Bennis and Robert Thomas set to find out how era and values shape those who lead. At the heart of this model are what the authors call "crucibles"--utterly transforming periods of testing from which one can emerge either hopelessly broken or powerfully emboldened to learn and to lead. Whether losing an election or burying a child, learning from a mentor or mastering a martial art, crucibles force us to decide who we are and what we are capable of.
"Important lessons in a fascinating book."

• "We found that every leader in our study, young or old, had undergone at least one intense, transformational experience. That transformational experience was at the very heart of becoming a leader." Pg. 14
