Many people, myself included, believe Warren Bennis belongs on the Mount Rushmore of leadership experts in the 20th century. His work is insightful, provocative and voluminous. This particular book entered my life when I was trying to lead a wonderful but challenging collection of talented individuals at Nabisco. I also found myself sharing this book with an equally talented and diverse collection of leaders at Campbell. Much like the work of Jon Katzenbach, Warren has done a masterful job of acknowledging the challenge of honoring both the individual and the team in a synergistic fashion. It is both an art and a science. In my opinion, Warren’s insights to navigating this challenge are unparalleled.
