"Boundless Leadership is a ground-breaking book that redefines what it means to be a true leader today. Rather than a superficial list of mundane and trite qualities found among 'great leaders, ' Boundless Leadership takes a deep dive into the leader him/herself to identify the critical characteristics that define authentic, mindful and effective leadership in a world full of sloganeering. This book is as much for the leader as it is for those he or she leads. A unique and progressive take on the organization of the future, Joe and Elazar are to leadership what Demming was to quality. A must read for both current and aspiring leaders."--Ron Insana, Senior Analyst, CNBC

"In a world increasingly powered by connectedness, interdependence and networks, the ability to shed historical win-lose thinking and embrace boundless leadership is critical for the success of any leader, organization or society.
