Editorial Reviews

Ian I. Mitroff
"The Leader’s Shadow is an innovative and much needed approach. It is bristling with insights."
Booknews
Drawing on collected descriptions from a wide variety of executive leaders and a review of the literature on leadership character, the author focuses on the complementary, but often ignored, internal aspects of the leadership experience, i.e. that power comes from within and from being authentic. He argues that leadership is an interaction between a specific context and personal character, and that this interaction can yield valuable creative fruits for an organization and for society.
