Why are we in a leadership crisis? Up to 85% of mergers and acquisitions destroy value, executives are in jail, economies are shaky and politics isn't providing answers.

This new book provides answers. Based on my doctoral research and work with leaders on 5 continents for 25 years, I also draw on my experiences teaching and learning in a Karate Dojo.

You will find out why leaders fail and what can be done about it—a blend of Eastern and Western approaches.
