Description

More than a decade ago, a group of bestselling authors, thought leaders and management experts-among them Marshall Goldsmith, Beverly Kaye and Ken Shelton-met to share their defining moments on leadership with one another. So taken were they with each other's stories that an annual tradition of trading leadership secrets was established. A recurring truth emerged: great leaders seize the opportunity to learn, again and again. Learn Like a Leader brings together these remarkable stories of learning and provides a close look at how top leaders-including Jim Collins, Warren Bennis and Dave Ulrich-were able to grow their careers, overcome setbacks and soar to the top. Offering profound lessons from key learning moments in the lives and careers of the contributors, Learn Like a Leader conveys the power of storytelling in teaching, training and mentoring.
