Editorial Reviews

In their 2007 book True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership, Bill George and his coauthors set out to help readers locate "the internal compass that guides you successfully through life." In Seven Lessons to Leading in Crisis, he offers steadying counsel to help leaders guide themselves and their companies or departments successfully through a storm. Paradoxically, his lessons -- "Never Waste a Good Crisis," and "Be Aggressive: This Is Your Best Chance to Win in the Market" -- are both realistic and uplifting.
