Publisher's Summary

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.

  • Includes original interviews with Michael Bloomberg, Carlos Slim, Eli Broad, Indra Nooyi, Drew Gilpin Faust, Anne Mulcahy, Vincente Fox, Lt. General Franklin L. "Buster" Hagenbeck, Coach John McKissick, Liu Chuanzhi, Daniel Vasella, and Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo.
  • Explores the common traits great leaders exhibit: vision, compassion, resilience, competitiveness, purpose, humility, team-building skills, entrepreneurial spirit, perseverance, self-awareness, empowerment, and being a catalyst.

Taking readers into executive suites, government offices, battlefields, and football fields, No Fear of Failure shows how great leaders make lasting impact.

    Story
    "Great Lessons for work and life!"
    If you could sum up No Fear of Failure: Real Stories of How Leaders Deal with Risk and Change in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, interesting and engaging


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not have an extreme reaction. I did, however, have many moments for reflection.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Tricky sample. ALL interviews re-read by narrator"
    What did you like best about this story?

    High level interviewees


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.
