On Becoming a Leader
A timeless classic from a pioneer in the field of leadership studies-the only book you need to read on becoming an effective leader.
Warren Bennis (1925-2014) was a pioneer in leadership studies, a scholar who advised presidents and business executives alike on how to become successful leaders. On Becoming a Leader is his seminal work, exemplifying Bennis's core belief that leaders are not born-they are made. In a world increasingly defined by turbulence and uncertainty, the call to leadership is more urgent than ever. Providing essential and timeless insights for generations of readers, On Becoming a Leader delves into the qualities that define leadership, the people who exemplify it, and the strategies that anyone can apply to achieve it.
Dubbed the "dean of leadership gurus" by Forbes magazine, Bennis remains the final word in modern leadership. This seminal work is a must-read for anyone who aspires to leadership excellence.

One of the best books on leadership. Bennis drives home the point that true learning begins with unlearning. Recommend it to anyone who wants to realize the difference between managing and leading.
