Over their distinguished careers, Warren Bennis and Joan Goldsmith have demonstrated how leaders are made, not born. In today's environment of crisis and uncertainty, the ability to develop leaders is arguably the most pressing concern, whether the arena is business, politics, education, health care, the environment, or the arts. Integrating wisdom from the world's most insightful and accomplished leaders, self-assessments, and dozens of interactive skill-building exercises, Learning to Lead reveals the underpinnings of true leadership. It shows you how to see beyond leadership myths, translate failures into springboards for renewed creativity, and communicate your vision for yourself, your team, or your organization.This new edition has been updated throughout, including bibliography and references, and contains substantive new material that reflects the authors' ongoing research on collaborative leadership, ethics, integrity, and personal development.

Doug Willmore, Chief Administrative Officer, Salt Lake County
“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.”
Catherine Houser, Executive Vice President of Human Resources, MTV Networks
“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.”
