Discover the secrets of leadership.

The world's foremost producer of personal development and motivational audio programs now presents the audio adaptation of the leadership classic recommended by Vice President Al Gore.

Today, most organizations are overmanaged and underled. Yet, the factor that ultimately determines which companies succeed or fail is their leadership. To remain competitive in the 21st century, America will need a new generation of leaders who can shape, rather than surrender to, our increasingly volatile global economy.

In On Becoming a Leader, management expert Warren Bennis shows how individuals develop leadership traits and how organizations encourage or stifle potential leaders. Bennis profiles dynamic figures from diverse business arenas -- Fortune 500 companies, the entertainment industry and political and nonprofit groups -- to demonstrate how all leaders share distinctive characteristics. This provocative examination will encourage all aspiring leaders to take risks, embrace change and transform their visions into reality.

About the Author:

Warren Bennis is a Distinguished Professor of Business Administration at the University of Southern California and a consultant to multinational companies and governments throughout the world. He is the author of 20 books, including the bestselling Leaders and An Invented Life.

From Publishers Weekly:

Business consultant and University of Southern California professor of business administration, Bennis here deplores what he considers a dearth of leadership in the world. Although he provides solid, practical guidance in how to fill this vacuum, his philosophically and psychologically rich volume seeks primarily to define leadership--which, in his view, requires self-knowledge and clear personal goals. Leaders in widely diverse areas--represented by television producer Norman Lear, AIDS researcher Mathilde Krim, CEO John Sculley and feminist Gloria Steinem--all share, contends Bennis, the ability to unite people in a common purpose. The curiosity of leaders, their faith in an "inner voice" and success in seizing control of their lives distinguish them from mere managers. But while a leader may demonstrate talent, the author observes that its fulfillment depends largely on organizational response to the challenge. 75,000 first printing; major ad/promo; author tour.
