–Joe LeBoeuf, Ph.D., COL, United States Army

"Overflows with rich and practical insights, tools, and frameworks. Best of all, it is the cumulative wisdom of a group of individuals with an extraordinary dedication to unraveling the mysteries of developing leadership."
–Jay A. Conger, professor, London Business School, and author, Building Leaders

"Represents some of the best thinking on leader and leadership development that is available anywhere, and will certainly be an indispensable resource for leadership scholars, students, and human resource professionals."
–David V. Day, professor of psychology, Pennsylvania State University

"Provides practical, leading-edge processes for developing individual leaders but aligns those processes with broader, systemic strategies for enhancing the organization’s capacity to more effectively maximize that leadership."
–Barry V. Bales, assistant dean for professional development, LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas at Austin
