Description

In a striking departure from past practices, Barbara Kellerman explores the fact that although we persist in viewing political and business leadership separately, the similarities between them far outweigh the differences. Kellerman claims that thinking of government and corporate leaders as a breed apart contributes to the dysfunctional gap between them, and she argues that in order to tackle those political, economic, and social problems that are the most intractable, political and business leaders will have no choice but to work together.

Review quote

"A master of leadership studies, Barbara Kellerman provides here a sweeping, deeply insightful and groundbreaking synthesis of leadership in politics and business during the last five decades. Delightfully written, Reinventing Leadership is an extraordinary achievement." -- Ronald A. Heifetz, Director of the Leadership Education Project, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University "A scholarly and persuasive piece of writing on why and how political leadership studies and corporate leadership studies have to get together. Their fates are correlated, Kellerman insists, and there's no time to lose. An original and much needed treatise." -- Warren Bennis, University Professor and Founding Chairman of the Leadership Institute at the University of Southern California "Barbara Kellerman penetrates to the heart of one of the most crucial and fascinating economic/political problems of the next century--the creative interlocking of government and business leadership--and presents specific proposals for such a creative goal. This fresh and thoughtful argument is presented in an engaging and persuasive style." -- James MacGregor Burns, Williams College
