Praise for Leading with Conviction

"Shalom Saar describes effective leadership in terms of grace and lightness—words that equally describe this book. Unlike authors that prescribe a list of tricks and tactics, Saar thoughtfully leads the reader on a journey of self-discovery. With priceless metaphors and enduring pillars as milestones, readers will cherish Leading with Conviction as a companion and guide to the well-lived life that is leadership."

Rebecca S. Chopp, president, Swarthmore College

"Leading with Conviction is rich with suggestive ideas."

Ronald Heifetz, author of Leadership Without Easy Answers, and cofounder, Center for Public Leadership at the John F. Kennedy School of Government

"Shalom Saar's insightful book will help both new and experienced leaders who want to become better. Using self-awareness as a tool, he leads the reader expertly along the never-ending journey of learning to make organizations great."

Edmund F. "Ted'' Kelly, CEO (ret.) and chairman, Liberty Mutual Insurance

"I thought I had read everything I needed to read about leadership. But 'conviction' is the quintessential attribute of a transformative leader that so far has not been addressed. This timely book goes a long way toward illuminating how leaders can cultivate and apply the conviction that is essential to achieving their transformative vision."

Robert H. Miles, president, Corporate Transformation Resources

"Leading with Conviction is filled with engaging stories and practical advice. It offers a leadership framework that is both useful and innovative."

Amir Ziv, vice dean and professor of accounting, Columbia Business School

"Leading with Conviction combines western frameworks of management with the wisdom of the ancient Chinese writings of Sun Tzu and others. It is a must-read book for executives in China searching for a relevant and meaningful blend of West and East."

Xiang Bing, dean of Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business, Beijing, China
