From the Back Cover:

PRAISE FOR PIVOT POINTS

Pivot Points is an important book for anyone who wants to understand that leadership is a journey of becoming. The five-pivotal-decisions approach to leadership will enable you to discover what is truly important in that journey.”
—HARRY M. JANSEN KRAEMER, Jr., Professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, Former Chairman and CEO of Baxter International, Author of From Values To Action: The Four Principles of Values-based Leadership

Pivot Points is the leadership book to read if you read only one this year. Most can only write about leadership as an art or science given their vantage point but Julia Tang Peters writes authoritatively from both perspectives. Pivot Points offers a balanced approach in guiding future global leaders.”
—OLIVER SICAT, CEO of Ednovate, Inc. and former Chief Portfolio Officer for Chicago Public Schools

“If you are only going to have time for one business read, make it Pivot Points. Julia Tang Peters’ book enables clear and rational decision making at key career milestones.”
—ROBERT L. CRUTCHFIELD, Partner, Harbert Venture Partners

“In Pivot Points I saw my own life. It clarifies my experience and strengthens my resolve to meet the next challenge and keep my focus on the exciting times ahead.”
—RICHARD A. ANDREWS, President and CEO of Thrasos Innovation, Inc.

“The unique perspective of this book is powerfully clear: leadership is about decision-making—in fact a journey of particular, connected decisions. Pivot Points creatively blends stories and empirical study to offer compelling insights that are sure to inspire courage and personal responsibility. Pivot Points brings it all together: What is leadership? What motivates leaders? What essential decisions do successful leaders make?”
—JOHN L. WARD, PHD, Clinical Professor of Family Enterprise, Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management

“I tend to avoid reading leadership books, but this one has given me a new perspective about where I am and where I still want to go. I’ve had a good long run in my career and Pivot Points helped me recommit to designing the future.”
—LUCIEN LAGRANGE, Architect

Pivot Points is a must read for anyone interested in mastering the art of leadership. It clearly and compellingly addresses leadership as an evolutionary process of discovery, reflection and creation—an ‘art’ to be mastered.”
—KEN WERNER, President of a division in a major entertainment studio
