What the Critics Say

Learning to Lead is one of the finest books for leaders that I have ever had the opportunity to read. Grounded in proven theory, yet written in action, Bennis and Goldsmith have given anyone who aspires to lead more powerfully and more effectively, a pathway to follow. The pathway they lay out requires work and thought, yet it also calls for the best that you have to give – and as such, has allowed for new levels of self-expression, authenticity, and effectiveness in my own leadership. Clear and concise, yet not simple, it is a book that I will return to again and again.” (Doug Willmore, Chief Administrative Officer, Salt Lake County)

“They say leaders are born, but leadership is a skill that's bred. Learning to Lead is full of smart, practical thinking on how to unlock the potential for greatness that lies within all of us.” (Catherine Houser, Executive Vice President of Human Resources, MTV Networks)

    Overall
    "Leadership gone awry."

    Many banal PC and Obama-worshipping interludes ruin these lessons from the master (Bennis).
    The whole thing smacks of political & social engineering.
    One might ask, was Bennis even involved?
    Anything by Tom Peters, who owes much to Bennis, is a much better listen.
