About the Author

What People are Saying About This

Deepak Chopra

“Jim has masterfully demystified 'Leadership' for those who think not everyone is meant to be a leader. He seamlessly takes the reader through the journey of managing, directing, and engaging to build confidence in anyone aspiring to be a leader. A must read for anyone in a leadership role or aspiring to move up the ladder.”

Rose Patten

“Jim Fisher's mix of theory, stories, personal journeys, and real cases offers a wealth of information that showcases his broad and deep command of the many facets of leadership. By impressively pulling together leadership theories and concepts into a coherent framework, Jim successfully convinces us leadership can be learned.”

Roger Martin

“Knowledge upon which positive action can be taken is rarely provided and hence precious. By this standard, The Thoughtful Leader by Jim Fisher is a gold mine of value for the practice of leadership. Simply put, it is the most actionable book on leadership I have yet read. Anybody who wants to become a better leader would be wise to read it.”
