"John Pisapia's latest publication, The Strategic Leader, is a highly readable and an absolutely essential addition to the library of leaders of all types of organizations. The author has done a masterful job of filling the gap between leadership theory and practice. He has defined, in clear and unambiguous language, the pathway toward leadership success in this new dynamic, global environment. The old models simply don't work and the author has identified the way to transition from the old models to a new way of thinking about and exercising strategic leadership in organizations. This is a book that should serve as a guide to leaders at every level and type of organization-a reference tool that should be consulted along your leadership journey."-Vincent L.
