Overview

"This is a book to be read, reread, shared widely within any organization. Every chapter has pictures for our mind that will remain vivid long after the book is closed. A vibrant testament to human potential, the why of work."
Frances Hesselbein, president and CEO, Leader to Leader Institute formerly the Drucker Foundation

"Here is Max De Pree at his best, and that is very good indeed. In Leading Without Power, De Pree shows us why we cannot master the how-to-dos of effective leadership without also being clear about what leaders—and followers—must be. In doing so, he not only provides us with much practical wisdom about creative leading and organizational health, he also nurtures our souls. This is a book to be savored by all who care about such things as vision, faithfulness, trust, and hope."
Richard J. Mouw, president, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Being CEO of a nonprofit organization is not so much a job as it is a love affair. Why keep at it if it is just going to limp along? Like any love story, my work may have its struggles, and Max De Pree provides the practical help, inspiration, and encouragement that keep me focused and motivated. But he also adds poetry, art, and dance to the work, and to the way I work."
Stephen A. Hayner, president, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship
