Leaders: Their Stories, Their Words: Conversations with Human-Based Leaders

By Donna Karlin
Have you ever wondered why some leaders stand heads above the crowd? What their secrets are and why their staff, colleagues, students and peers revere them so much? Leaders: Their Stories, Their Words is for anyone who aspires to be a leader in their organization and their own life. Now more than ever, effective leaders are needed to set the direction and tone of where to go, how to get there, and how to engage people along the way. Here is a collection of twelve insightful conversations between two leaders. When Donna Karlin, a renowned leadership coach, speaks with each extraordinary leader, she invites them to tell us their story. Every story sheds light on some of the experiences that contributed to their person's leadership style. These human-based leaders impact the talents, strengths, and achievements of those they inspire. While producing stunning results, they marry a passion for what they do with a compassion for those they lead. These leaders' stories enable us to easily connect to our own experiences, making sense and personalizing our insights and learning. The ebb and flow of animated dialog around a leader's story encourages us to become engaged and listen for what is meaningful to us. So read on. Discover new tools and practices so you can lead more powerfully. Shift your perspective. Be inspired.
