Learning to Lead: A Workbook on Becoming a Leader - 4th Edition
Warren G. Bennis and Joan Goldsmith
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
On Becoming a Leader has sold nearly 150,000 copies since its publication in 1989. This workbook provides a practical way to work out the issues in Bennis' bestselling book, showing readers how to assess present leadership skills and then, through theory and exercises, how to improve problem areas.
This stand-alone workbook extends that lesson by teaching managers how they can make themselves into leaders. Using a thorough self-assessment section and more than 30 one-day skill-building exercises, it walks readers through the basics of leadership.
