Synopsis

The New York Times bestseller that gives readers a paradigm—shattering new way to think about motivation.

Synopsis

“One of the best leadership books of the year.” -strategy+business Leadership is the art of transforming how people think, feel, and act.

And according to Alan Deutschman, most leaders focus too much on words and not nearly enough on setting an example. Deutschman profiles a wide range of leaders (in business, education, the military, and nonprofits) who always walked the walk, especially when times got tough.
