Learn Like a Leader Today's Top Leaders Share Their Learning Journeys by Beverly L. Kaye, Ken Shelton, Marshall Goldsmith

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.


A remarkable collection of inspiration, wisdom, and insight from the true luminaries in our field. The lessons shared in this book are not to be missed! -- Marc Effron, president, The Talent Strategy Group This book is full of powerful stories by leaders who teach leaders. -- Norm Smallwood, coauthor, The Leadership Code and Leadership Brand A must-read for anyone interested in leadership, management, organizational design or personal development, this inspiring collection of stories will enable individuals and groups to find deeper meaning in the work they do. * Publishers Weekly * If good leaders are good storytellers-and they are-then pull up your favorite chair to hear the voices of these top leadership experts. The tales of turning points in their lives-so vividly told here-will inspire, entertain and instruct us all. -- John Alexander, executive coach and former President, Center for Creative Leadership Some of our greatest contemporary leaders have shared their leadership wisdom and experience in this book. Read and reread each story and you will discover what it is to Learn Like a Leader! -- Frances Hesselbein, President and CEO, Leader to Leader Institute and former CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA
