HBR’s 10 Must Reads on Leadership (Harvard Business Press, 2011) reviewed by Steve Gladis, Ph.D., May 2011.
I confess to being a Harvard Business Review junkie. In that context, you can evaluate my recommendation for their new series that includes a collection of articles under specific topics like Leadership, Change, and Strategy. Specifically, On Leadership provides the collective wisdom of a gathering of leadership eagles, such as: Daniel Goleman, Peter Drucker, John Kotter, Ronald Heifitz, Warren Bennis and Jim Collins. Each one has significantly advanced the field of leadership. For example, Goleman gave us emotional intelligence; Drucker, the knowledge worker; Kotter, change management; Heifitz, adaptive leadership; and, Collins, good-to-great leadership. So, reading the HBR’s newest series is for me like sitting down for a cup of coffee with old, trusted friends who helped build the house I live in every day—leadership.
