Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As a firm believer in overturning convention, I want to endorse this radical approach to leadership. Marvin Weisbord and Sandra Janoff provide insight, guidance, and support for leaders who practice what I call ‘conscious leadership' while aspiring to make a positive difference and enable people to grow. I highly recommend this book to fellow leaders on this journey.”—John Mackey, cofounder and co-CEO, Whole Foods“Controlling people never makes great things happen. I have found that applying the principles in this book takes patience, time, and imagination. The result is always rewarding and well worth the effort.” —Jesper Brodin, Global Head of Range and Supply, IKEA“For over two decades I have applied Weisbord and Janoff's principles in making public policy and practicing good governance. Theirs is not just a way of leading others but a way of living life more fully.”—Aideen McGinley, Northern Ireland Trustee, BBC Trust, and Trustee, Carnegie UK Trust
