"Frances Hesselbein inspires people from all walks of life, from Fortune 500 CEOs to philanthropists, military general officers, young leaders, and nonprofit executives in every social sector. Leadership, she teaches, begins not with what you do, but with who you are. And she shows with her own personal example that one of the greatest sources of continuous self-renewal is leadership done in the spirit of service. Frances shines a light!"
Jim Collins, author of Good to Great and How the Mighty Fall

As the president and CEO of the acclaimed Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute (formerly the Leader to Leader Institute) and editor in chief of the organization's journal, Frances Hesselbein has shared her wealth of knowledge and in-the-trenches experience through a series of compelling articles on the topic of leadership.

In this follow-up to her Hesselbein on Leadership, Frances Hesselbein offers a collection of her most celebrated articles from Leader to Leader. Each article is filled with wisdom and advice for today's leaders who must be prepared to guide their organizations into an uncertain future.

    To lead is to serve!

    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.
