“Most business books share stories about a leader of a company and how he or she overcomes particular challenges. Others offer a lesson learned from business experience. Often these books all read alike, but not Bennis’ books. He has a way of sharing a business experience while extracting insight and, more importantly, wisdom. He brings out the best in every story and especially helped me understand the value of self reflection and obstacles. He writes so clearly about how reflection provides self awareness and leads to understandings. His chapter about moving through chaos helped me see that barriers and obstacles are a gift and includes one of my favorite quotes: ‘Everywhere you trip is where a treasure lies.’”
- Pat Lawler, CEO, Youth Villages
