Review quote

Great leaders aren't measured by their volume but by their ability to be truly heard. To motivate others, leaders must listen and communicate empathetically. With Illuminate, everyone can learn to lead - even without being loud SUSAN CAIN, author of Quiet and cofounder of Quiet Revolution Change can be fear-filled in prospect but fearsome in effect. With Illuminate, Duarte and Sanchez light our path through that crucial transition dazzlingly ROBERT B. CIALDINI, author of Influence Duarte and Sanchez give us the unique concept that our company's change and growth have the structure of epic drama; we make our stories through working out our difficulties. They give an even deeper insight that we must begin our next journey before the current one ends. Most people misunderstand the role of story in our lives, but by understanding it, we can use it as a metaphor for leading ED CATMULL, president of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, and author of Creativity, Inc. Whether it is to well-dressed executives or begrimed young soldiers, there is a vast difference between simply transmitting information and effectivelycommunicating it. Illuminate is a tremendous guide for anyone who must educate, motivate, or inspire - and that's just about all of us GENERAL STANLEY McCHRYSTAL, author of Team of Teams and cofounder of McChrystal Group Leading people through change is hard to do, especially for leaders who don't communicate well.
