Praise for The Anywhere Leader

"Heifer International leaders operate all over the world in the most difficult conditions possible. Population growth, poverty, climate change, water shortages, regional conflicts, genocide, land grabs, cultural divides and corruption are all part of their daily, shifting realities. The Anywhere Leader unambiguously surfaces the fundamental traits needed to be able to absorb all sorts of shocks, instill confidence in the mission, and focus on impact for the benefit of all."—Pierre Ferrari, CEO, Heifer International

"The Anywhere Leader is about becoming the kind of leader you need to be in these changing times. Mike Thompson understands leaders and the realities they face. His straightforward approach will stimulate your thinking and give you the tools you need to thrive."—Mark Sanborn, president, Sanborn & Associates, and author, Up, Down, or Sideways; You Don't Need a Title to Be a Leader; and The Fred Factor

"I don't like the phrase 'born leader.' I don't believe leaders are born—they're developed. And perhaps the best way to develop leaders is to introduce them to new environments and responsibilities. Mike Thompson uses his experience and research to give the reader a road map for plunging into these uncharted waters successfully."—Donnie Smith, CEO, Tyson Foods, Inc.

"It has become clear that the new normal for health care is dynamic change. I don't believe this situation will resolve itself in our lifetime. To be successful today, you must be able to build positive relationships with stakeholders quickly and effectively. Gone are the days when you had the luxury of time to replace a leadership team with familiar people. It is imperative that you make a positive contribution from day one, no matter the conditions and no matter the obstacles. The Anywhere Leader provides solid and practical research-based answers for doing exactly this."—Michael McCurry, COO, Sisters of Mercy Health System
