Review:

As I took the time to appraise privately some of the leaders I know in the business and financial communities, I was struck by the validity and simplicity of the qualities included in the book's leadership model. It is clear that the author is talking about real people. I hope our country will be favored in the future, with so many leaders who will emulate ever more closely the leadership standards so soundly articulated in this book. (John Pancetti, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, The Manhattan Savings Bank)

A superb integration of the popular and scientific literature; this book presents a compelling framework for understanding what differentiates effective from ineffective leaders. (Gary Latham, Faculty of Management, University of Toronto)

It is encouraging to note that the 'old fashioned' characteristics of honesty, integrity, and self-confidence lead Edwin Locke's list of leadership traits. If the leaders of the twenty-first century are grounded in these fundamentals, our future will be in good hands. (Anne Sutherland Fuchs, publisher, Vogue)

To me, the essence of a successful leader is belief in one's self and an equally strong belief in the vision of where you want to go and what you wish to achieve. Nothing convinces those with whom you work more than your own conviction in the objectives of the task at hand. Edwin Locke's book captures my feelings exactly. (William B. Walsh M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer, Project HOPE)
