Year after year, a group of best-selling authors, thought leaders and management experts--among them James Collins, Warren Bennis and Davie Ulrich--meet to share their defining moments on leadership with one another. As this annual meeting of the minds became a tradition, one theme quickly emerged: great leaders seize the opportunity to learn, over and over again. These remarkable stories form the basis of Learn Like a Leader, a close look at why some people are able to grow in their careers, overcome setbacks and soar to the top, whereas others never fully reach their potential. The book offers powerful lessons reflecting key learning moments in the lives and careers of each of the contributors. Learn Like a Leader portrays the power of storytelling in teaching, training and mentoring.
