Leadership Book Review:

The New York Times bestselling book about the early development, growth, and exercise of leadership from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin “should help us raise our expectations of our national leaders, our country, and ourselves” (The Washington Post). “After five decades of magisterial output, Doris Kearns Goodwin leads the league of presidential historians” (USA TODAY). In her “inspiring” (The Christian Science Monitor) Leadership, Doris Kearns Goodwin draws upon the four presidents she has studied most closely—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights)—to show how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entries into public life, we encounter them at a time when their paths were filled with confusion, fear, and hope. Leadership tells the story of how they all collided with dramatic reversals that disrupted their lives and threatened to shatter forever their ambitions. Nonetheless, they all emerged fitted to confront the contours and dilemmas of their times. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. At moments of great challenge, they were able to summon their talents to enlarge the opportunities and lives of others. Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? “If ever our nation needed a short course on presidential leadership, it is now” (The Seattle Times). This seminal work provides an accessible and essential road map for aspiring and established leaders in every field. In today’s polarized world, these stories of authentic leadership in times of apprehension and fracture take on a singular urgency. “Goodwin’s volume deserves much praise—it is insightful, readable, compelling: Her book arrives just in time” (The Boston Globe).

Forged in Crisis Book Review:

A WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER “Five gritty leaders whose extraordinary passion and perseverance changed history…a gripping read on a timeless and timely topic” —Angela Duckworth, #1 bestselling author of Grit An enthralling historical narrative filled with critical leadership insights, Forged in Crisis, by celebrated Harvard Business School historian Nancy Koehn, spotlights five masters of crisis: polar explorer Ernest Shackleton; President Abraham Lincoln; legendary abolitionist Frederick Douglass; Nazi-resisting clergyman Dietrich Bonhoeffer; and environmental crusader Rachel Carson. What do such disparate figures have in common? Why do their extraordinary stories continue to amaze and inspire? In delivering the answers to those questions, Nancy Koehn offers a remarkable template by which to judge those in our own time to whom the public has given its trust. She begins each of the book’s five sections by showing her protagonist on the precipice of a great crisis: Shackleton marooned on an Antarctic ice floe; Lincoln on the verge of seeing the Union collapse; escaped slave Douglass facing possible capture; Bonhoeffer agonizing over how to counter absolute evil with faith; Carson racing against the cancer ravaging her in a bid to save the planet. The narrative then reaches back to each person’s childhood and shows the individual growing—step by step—into the person he or she will ultimately become. Significantly, as we follow each leader’s against-all-odds journey, we begin to glean an essential truth: leaders are not born but made. In a book dense with epiphanies, the most galvanizing one may be that the power to lead courageously resides in each of us. Whether it’s read as a repository of great insight or as exceptionally rendered human drama, Forged in Crisis stands as a towering achievement.

Business Leadership in Turbulent Times Book Review:

Business Leadership in Turbulent Times presents an integrative methodology for decision-making that advances the notion that business success involves more than strategy. Strategy is an important facet but not the only determinant for success. Devising the strategy in the first place, deploying assets, following a financial model that supports the strategy, picking the right leaders, and company culture all play critical roles. In this book, the authors share an approach for businesses to thrive during good and bad times. Reflecting on their diverse experiences in business and academia, they answer questions such as: • Why do some firms become winners while others lose? • How do successful firms create and sustain value? • Why do firms that were once great suddenly fail? Most importantly, the authors provide a framework for senior executives to make decisions even during times of crisis. The book includes an appendix of insights and predictions about the impact of COVID-19 on business leadership. The crisis has implications on short- and long-term priorities, the pace of innovation, and the role of leaders.

Athletic CEOs Book Review:

Athletic CEOs: Leadership in Turbulent Times is a book about high-performing transformational leaders operating in turbulent environments. These CEOs do not lead by the book: they may not praise their subordinates, provide positive feedback or regularly celebrate small wins. Yet they have created formidable enterprises that deliver sustainable growth, have elevated their companies’ employees to new levels, have set new standards for their industries and have advanced their regions. Most remarkably, in spite of their prominence, these leaders continue to reinvent themselves. Having studied them for a decade, Stanislav Shekshnia, Veronika Zagieva and Alexey Ulanovsky developed a model of athletic leadership which describes the leadership agendas, practices, outcomes and outputs of these leaders as well as unique attributes that make them effective.

High Stakes Leadership in Turbulent Times Book Review:

Even the greatest organizations suffer great disasters. Are you ready for the storms that are looming? From a leader who has managed high-flying, high-stakes, and high-tech organizations comes a book about what it really takes to lead people and institutions through a major crisis, through the most perilous and unforgiving circumstances, and to survive and thrive against all odds. JetBlue co-founder and former Navy TOPGUN chief instructor Dr. Mike Barger helps us see why exceptional leadership is immensely challenging but vitally important when organizations find themselves amid turbulent times. He gives it to us straight in a book that is as relevant for aspiring leaders (like MBA students) as it is for seasoned leaders (Fortune 1,000 executives). Every leader will be forced to guide a team through a crisis, and it's time for everyone -- from small business owners to nonprofit directors to the corporate C-suite -- to make plans for being their best when the worst comes calling. LOVE Your Stakeholders, Every Step of the Way Every organization -- regardless of industry or size -- has valued stakeholders, like customers, employees, suppliers, investors, and competitors ... and many also work with communities, regulators, and the media. With so many stakeholders to think about, it can be easy to neglect them, forgetting about their unique (and sometimes competing) needs and perspectives. In a crisis, that neglect translates into further catastrophe. In his debut business book, High-Stakes Leadership in Turbulent Times, Mike Barger suggests that no matter where you work and lead, stakeholders are your greatest assets ... in good times and bad. Travel with Barger into emergency command centers and airport terminals, where key decisions were made during a 2007 JetBlue Airways winter-storm crisis now infamously known as the Valentine's Day Massacre. Learn how to step up when you mess up, how to engage and serve your stakeholders, and how to prepare yourself and your organization -- operationally, emotionally, and culturally -- before, during, and after the going gets tough. Learn to Effectively Navigate the Challenges of Significant Organizational Disruptions Crises and organizational disruptions have become increasingly common in today's fast-moving, constantly evolving business environment. The world is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA), and leaders at every level must be prepared for the unexpected. High-Stakes Leadership in Turbulent Times helps readers discover how and why an understanding of various stakeholder perspectives can inform and dramatically improve a leader's response to events that threaten an organization's very survival. Learn about developing individual and organizational resilience -- the ability to anticipate potential threats; to cope effectively with adverse events when they occur; and to adapt to changing conditions to ensure a viable path forward for yourself, your team, and your organization. Learn how to estimate what kinds of crises might be on your horizon, how your stakeholders are likely to react, and how to effectively communicate your way through it. A game-changing, organization-saving book ... complete with chapter-end activities, universally relevant action plans, and reflection questions to help you grow as a high-stakes leader.

Leadership in Turbulent Times Book Review:

Turbulent times occur due to crises, which can happen at any time and in any organisation. Even if the firm is doing well today, it does not eradicate the possibility of the firm being thrown into trouble in the nearest future. No one can predict the future. While leaders of a company are enjoying the good times, they should equally consider the possibility of turbulent times; as a result, they should prepare for eventualities. They should get themselves ready for those times that crisis will be the order of the day. No one wishes for crises, but the crisis does not come by wishing for them; they come a random and the causes can be internal or external. Preparing ahead of time can prevent the problems of under preparation for crises. A company and its management should understand how to manage crises situations when such arise. The leaders in a company should be visionary enough to get them set for any problem that may arise.
