¿What doesn¿t kill you makes you stronger,¿ is one of Friedrich Nietzsche¿s most famous sayings. In their quest to uncover the secrets of great leadership across generations, Warren Bennis and Robert J. Thomas arrive basically at the same conclusion in this revised update of their earlier book Geeks & Geezers. The ability to overcome adversity is the universal theme that emerges from their interviews with 18 ¿geeks,¿ leaders mostly younger than 30, and 25 ¿geezers,¿ leaders mostly aged 70 to 80, in search of lessons about leadership, as shaped by generational differences. How disparate and how alike were the corporate leaders of the World War II generation and today? Though raised in radically different generations, both groups share unflinching optimism, rock-solid integrity and the ability to inspire others. We strongly recommend the leadership principles in this finely crafted, absorbing book to leaders and potential leaders. Look at it this way: The effort won¿t kill you in fact, it¿ll probably make you stronger.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
