On Becoming a Leader

By Warren G Bennis, Bennis Warren (Joint author)
Discover the secrets of leadership.
The world's foremost producer of personal development and motivational audio programs now presents the audio adaptation of the leadership classic recommended by Vice President Al Gore.
Today, most organizations are overmanaged and underled. Yet, the factor that ultimately determines which companies succeed or fail is their leadership. To remain competitive in the 21st century, America will need a new generation of leaders who can shape, rather than surrender to, our increasingly volatile global economy.
In "On Becoming a Leader, " management expert Warren Bennis shows how individuals develop leadership traits and how organizations encourage or stifle potential leaders. Bennis profiles dynamic figures from diverse business arenas -- Fortune 500 companies, the entertainment industry and political and nonprofit groups -- to demonstrate how all leaders share distinctive characteristics. This provocative examination will encourage all aspiring leaders to take risks, embrace change and transform their visions into reality.
