Leader to Leader is not written by journalists or business writers. Instead, world-class leaders and thinkers share leading-edge insights in their own words--unfiltered, unbiased, unvarnished. You won't just read about people like MIT's Peter Senge, Southwest Airline's Herb Kelleher, Emerson's Charles Knight, Intel's Andy Grove, best-selling author Jim Champy, and emotional intelligence expert Danial Goleman--you'll hear from them directly.

Leader to Leader brings you firsthand articles written by today's most influential leaders and thinkers--the people who are shaping our future--to enable you and your organization to prepare for the opportunities and challenges ahead.

The editors of Leader to Leader have gathered the most respected leaders in the field and asked them to reommend other extraordinary, innovative, insightful, and forward-looking leaders from the business world, the public sector, and the key nonprofit institutions in the social sector.

Every issue brings you exciting thought leaders -- people who are truly at the forefronts of their fields:
  • Ram Charan, author of Leadership in the Era of Economic Uncertainty, Boards That Deliver and The Leadership Pipeline, explains how individuals can use five building blocks to take charge of their own leadership development.
  • John Kotter, world-renowned leadership expert at the Harvard Business School and author of the best-sellers Buy-In, A Sense of Urgency, and Our Iceberg is Melting, discusses the powerful role feelings play in promoting or inhibiting change efforts.
  • Margaret Wheatley, best-selling author of Leadership and the New Science, Finding Our Way: Leadership For an Uncertain Time, and the new Walk Out Walk On, advises to shift from looking for leaders-as-heroes to a new model of leaders-as-hosts, people who encourage the creativity and commitment of everyone in their communities.
  • Marshall Goldsmith, featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker and Forbes as a top executive coach, and author of the top selling What Got You Here Won’t Get You There and MOJO: How to Get It, How to Keep It, and How to Get It Back If you Lose It, explains how to help yourself and others achieve difficult goals.
  • Peter Senge, who wrote the classic The Fifth Discipline, describes a powerful new model for leading across organizational boundaries to solve otherwise intractable problems.
  • Daniel Goleman, best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence and Primal Leadership, explains the five learnable abilities that usually spell the difference between success and failure in the business world—and in life.
  • Bill George, former chairman and CEO of Medtronic and the author of True North and Authentic Leadership, discusses his research on more than 100 leaders and shows that they become effective only when they stop focusing on their own needs. Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School professor and best-selling author of Confidence, The Change Masters and SuperCorp, shows how leaders can deliver confidence at every level: self-confidence, confidence in the team, and the confidence of external investors and stakeholders.
  • Noel Tichy, author of the classic Control Your Destiny or Someone Else Will and Judgement, describes the key skills for leading sustained growth.
  • Warren Bennis, cited by Forbes as “the dean of leadership gurus” and author of such classics as On Becoming a Leader and Leaders, describes the first lessons of his own leadership journey, as a 19-year-old infantry officer during the Battle of the Bulge.
  • Charles Handy, best-selling author of The Age of Unreason and The Age of Paradox, offers essential advice on reflecting on life’s lessons and the power of writing about your own experiences.
  • James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner, renowned leadership experts and best-selling co-authors of The Leadership Challenge and the new The Truth About Leadership, discuss the inner journey all effective leaders must make.
Think of each issue as a short, intensive seminar with these top thinkers and doers. Use it to develop your leadership team. To help them challenge conventional solutions and think beyond the old boundaries.

Use it yourself to rise above the day-to-day turmoil and focus on the longer view that is so important for all leaders.

And Leader to Leader contains no advertising. We are beholden only to our readers and to their demand for truly innovative ideas that make a difference.

Finally, and most important, Leader to Leader provides unparalleled access to the ideas and insights of the kind of people you would seek out on your own if only you had the time.
