    REVIEW QUOTES

You recognize leadership when you see it, but many people tend to stumble when asked to come up with a definition. Not so for Andersen, who is a leadership coach and "Forbes" blogger. She couldn't be more direct and succinct as she breaks down the definition of leadership into six components or, more apropos to her discussions, the six attributes of a good leader--far-sightedness, passion, courage, wisdom, generosity, and trustworthiness. Her point and approach are to teach how to be an effective leader, supported by her fundamental philosophy that "when someone who is put in the 'leader' seat doesn't demonstrate the leadership qualities for which human beings have a kind of built-in radar, that person is unlikely to be effective as a leader." To that end, she offers five "key behaviors" for each of the six leadership components. A book to read more than once and to consult many times."-- Brad Hooper, Booklist Online"
