Learn Like a Leader: Today's Top Leaders Share Their Learning Journeys

By Beverly Kaye, Ken Shelton
More than a decade ago, a group of bestselling authors, thought leaders and management experts-among them Marshall Goldsmith, Beverly Kaye and Ken Shelton-met to share their defining moments on leadership with one another. So taken were they with each other's stories that an annual tradition of trading leadership secrets was established.
A recurring truth emerged: great leaders seize the opportunity to learn, again and again. Learn Like a Leader brings together these remarkable stories of learning and provides a close look at how top leaders-including Jim Collins, Warren Bennis and Dave Ulrich-were able to grow their careers, overcome setbacks and soar to the top.
Offering profound lessons from key learning moments in the lives and careers of the contributors, Learn Like a Leader conveys the power of storytelling in teaching, training and mentoring.

If good leaders are good storytellers-and they are-then pull up your favorite chair to hear the voices of these top leadership experts. The tales of turning points in their lives-so vividly told here-will inspire, entertain, and instruct us all.--John Alexander, executive coach and former president, Center for Creative Leadership
Some of our greatest contemporary leaders have shared their leadership wisdom and ex perience in Learn Like a Leader. Each story shares a lesson we make our own. And the best leadership lessons come from leaders themselves who have the courage to tell others about difficult situations they faced, how they handled them, and what happened as a result. Read and reread each story and you will discover what it is to Learn Like a Leader!--Frances Hesselbein, president and CEO, Leader to Leader Institute and former CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA
