About this title

Synopsis:

The Leadership Classic, Discover Your True North, expanded for today's leaders

Discover Your True North is the best-selling leadership classic that enables you to become an authentic leader by discovering your True North. Originally based on first-person interviews with 125 leaders, this book instantly became a must-read business classic when it was introduced in 2007. Now expanded and updated to introduce 48 new leaders and new learning about authentic global leaders, this revisited classic includes more diverse, global, and contemporary leaders of all ages. New case studies include Warren Buffett, Indra Nooyi, Arianna Huffington, Jack Ma, Paul Polman, Mike Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg, and many others. Alongside these studies, former Medtronic CEO Bill George continues to share his personal stories and his wisdom by describing how you can become the leader you want to be, with helpful exercises included throughout the book.

Being a leader is about much more than title and management skills—it's fundamentally a question of who we are as human beings. Discover Your True North offers a concrete and comprehensive program for becoming an authentic leader, and shows how to chart your path to leadership success.

Once you discover the purpose of your leadership, you'll find the true leader inside you. This book shows you how to use your natural leadership abilities to inspire and empower others to excellence in today's complex global world. Discover Your True North enables you to become the leader you were born to be, and stay on track of your True North.

From the Back Cover:

"Discover Your True North bids to be a classic, standing alongside The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker and Becoming a Leader by Warren Bennis. I salute Bill on his best book."
—Foreword by David Gergen

"This is the most robust and practical leadership book I have ever read, period. Bill George, one of the most admired leaders of our time, packs several lifetimes of wisdom into one quick and compelling read."
–Tom Rath, author of Strengths Finder and Are You Fully Charged?

"In Discover Your True North, Bill George captures the practice and value of skilled and motivated authentic leaders working together on a strategy and a plan to deliver a compelling vision. It's a must-read! Thank you, Bill!!"
–Alan Mulally, former CEO of Ford Motor

"This book is the gold standard for people of all ages who want to learn the art of authentic leadership. Bill's practical exercises give us the tools to identify and develop our own leadership qualities."
–Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post

"We need courageous and authentic leaders at all levels. Discover Your True North is an essential companion for anyone who aspires to make a positive difference in a world where trust and authenticity are the defining characteristics of great leaders."
–Paul Polman, CEO of Unilever

"Bill George tells the stories of leaders united by one belief: You can't deliver value unless you anchor yourself in values. Bill does a masterful job showing anyone on the journey of leadership what it takes to discover your own True North."
–Indra Nooyi, CEO of PepsiCo
