On Leadership: Essential Principles for Success | [Donald J. Palmisano]

On Leadership: Essential Principles for Success

Every day, leaders around the world make decisions that affect millions of people. The results of these decisions are mixed. Sometimes - like when Nelson Mandela led the fight against apartheid - our leaders inspire positive change on a grand scale. But at other times - like when various leaders failed to respond adequately to Hurricane Katrina - poor leadership yields disastrous outcomes. Anyone can claim to be a leader in times of calm, but crisis situations sift the true visionaries from the false ones.

Audible Editor Reviews

A sincere and thoughtful guide to successful leadership, presented as a series of lessons drawn from real-life crises of the past and present. Author Donald J. Palmisano believes that leadership is a skill that can be taught, and he distills the characteristics he considers key to effective leadership into a series of practical primers on issues such as dealing with the media, learning to listen, and practicing financial responsibility. This is a useful addition to the toolkit of any leader-to-be, and performer Darren Ziegler's extremely deep voice and easy delivery is a refreshing change from many relentlessly perky leadership books.

Publisher's Summary

Every day, leaders around the world make decisions that affect millions of people. The results of these decisions are mixed. Sometimes - like when Nelson Mandela led the fight against apartheid - our leaders inspire positive change on a grand scale. But at other times - like when various leaders failed to respond adequately to Hurricane Katrina - poor leadership yields disastrous outcomes. Anyone can claim to be a leader in times of calm, but crisis situations sift the true visionaries from the false ones.

Recent events in global affairs make it increasingly apparent that nations must cultivate and encourage true leaders - and eschew false ones - if they hope to survive. Fortunately, effective leadership is a skill that can be taught, especially through the study of exemplary figures of the past. In each chapter of On Leadership, Dr. Donald J. Palmisano cites an example of positive or negative action as a source from which to glean essential leadership lessons. Through guided analysis of each real-life situation, listeners will learn detailed, practical methods and strategies for becoming true leaders. This book provides crucial advice for people who aspire to become effective leaders in any position.
