Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In this well-timed book, David Heenan explores the art of the sweetly timed exit. A well-respected corporate executive, business-school dean, and former Marine, he has encountered his own share of successful sayonaras. It is this authenticity that allows him to lay out a comprehensive road map—a set of directions any of us can follow.”—From the Foreword by Leadership Guru Warren Bennis

“Leaving on Top explores how to deal with the trauma of quitting when you're ahead and stepping up to the challenges of the next stage of life. Must read.”—Michael O’Neill, Chairman of Citigroup

“In Leaving On Top, Dave Heenan explains how to make a graceful exit.”—Steve Case, CEO of Revolution and co-founder of America Online (AOL)

“Leaving On Top shows how to make a fool of the grim reaper—or at least earn his respect.” —Jim Bouton, former New York Yankee pitcher and author of the classic Ball Four

“Leaving On Top shows how bidding farewell is not the end of the line, but, instead, how one can use it to open doors to a rich, new life. This book is a practical and usable road map to dealing with a timely and important subject.” —Tom Leppert, Former Mayor of Dallas and CEO of Turner Corp.

“Why do some senior leaders ‘get out while they're on top’ while others ‘overstay their welcome’? Dave Heenan thoughtfully probes this question and comes up with some great ideas that will help all of us gracefully face that inevitable moment.” —Jerry Porras, Lane Professor of Organizational Behavior and Change Emeritus, Stanford Business School and co-author of Built to Last.
