Candid conversations with top leaders around the world on how they approached pivotal moments in their careers.
No Fear of Failure offers insightful, candid conversations with some of the world's top leaders in business, politics, education, and philanthropy - each giving a first-person account of how they approached crucial, career-defining moments. Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn/Ferry International, the world's largest executive recruiting firm, sits down one-on-one with a highly select and elite corps, and together they openly discuss how they handled (often very publicly) war, economic downturn, corporate turnover, and even retirement. Together these world-class leaders show the risks one must be willing to take, as well as the vision, resilience, and compassion necessary to lead.
Taking readers into executive suites, government offices, battlefields, and football fields, No Fear of Failure shows how great leaders make lasting impact.

Insightful, interesting and engaging
I liked the fact that the leaders who were featured were from different fields as this allowed me to gain information about their leadership journey as well as their field of expertise.
I am not sure that there was a true standout as all the stories were so good but if I had to choose, I would perhaps say the story of the President of Harvard.
I did not have an extreme reaction. I did, however, have many moments for reflection.
This book is a good read for anyone who wants to learn from the journey of those who have taken on the challenge of leadership.
High level interviewees
You only hear the narrators voice. You never hear anyone interviewed in there voice. I thought the samples of the actual people interviewed was deceptive.
