The Art and Adventure of Leadership
IN THIS SUMMARY
While many professionals have the ambition and desire to lead, not all should take on leadership roles. Many workers are not up to the duties, responsibilities, or hardships required. When the wrong people are in charge, they risk hurting both themselves and others around them. Professionals must share their talents accordingly and learn how to cope with and learn from failure. In The Art and Adventure of Leadership, Warren Bennis and Steven B. Sample relay content from a leadership course they taught together at the University of Southern California. Told through the words of Rob Ashgar, the book shares many of the leadership themes frequently discussed in their class.
