Frances Hesselbein knows a thing or two about leadership. CEO of the Girl Scouts (a multi-billion dollar organization) and later President of the Drucker Institute for Leadership, she has a voice worth listening to. I had the chance to meet Frances last month at a Manhattan dinner. She is everything you'd imagine, genuine, passionate and energetic. This book is a collection of some of the more popular articles that have been published in the Leader-to-Leader journal over the past 15 years. If you haven't been keeping up with them, this is an easy way to jump start your reading program.
