Overview

"Koestenbaum and his philosophical approach have never seemed more relevant."
Fast Company
Magazine

In this thoroughly revised edition of his classic book Leadership, legendary business philosophy and thinker Peter Koestenbaum expands on his leadership theories and invites managers to break out of the ordinary managerial mind-set. He reveals how striving for greatness enables managers to focus their efforts and grasp new ideas and insights by bringing intensity and meaning to their work— thereby improving their ability to achieve bottom-line results. Throughout the book, Koestenbaum demonstrates that when leaders live out their deepest and most personal commitment to excellence, they bring out what is great in others as well. Using his new intervention tools and practical techniques, readers will learn to develop long-term vision and marshal the courage to take risks and act with sustained initiative.
