Format: Paperback
This is a book that can rightly be called a classic to those who study the subject of leadership. It is now over ten years old but is still used by many universities as a textbook for their leadership or business classes. Gardner can truly be called a renaissance man due to his many talents and achievements. With a formal education in psychology he has been a teacher, corporate officer, public-servant in the government, respected author, and military officer. He was awarded the Presidential Metal of Freedom in 1964. Through these experiences he has learned much about leaders and the subject of leadership. On Leadership is written from the heart and discusses the author's philosophy and personal reflections on what it takes to lead others. He defines leadership as "the process of persuasion or example by which an individual (or leadership team) induces a group to pursue objectives held by the leader or shared by the leader and his or her followers".

Gardner begins by stressing the lack of leadership in the U.S. He believes this is a critical problem and opines that new leaders are desperately needed to tackle the obvious monumental societal problems that exist in our culture. Much of the book has a common thread on the critical need for leadership development. The author frequently uses historical examples to highlight his theories on leadership. On Leadership begins by stressing that understanding real leadership is an important first step. Leaders must be accountable, and must be held accountable for their actions and the direction they are taking us. He also does not shy away from a bold discussion on the importance of shared values, ethics, integrity and responsibility.

Format: Paperback
This is one of those books filled with big words, written by an obviously brilliant man. There are only one hundred-ninety nine pages, yet it took me some time to get through this book. As the author states at the first of the book, this is not a how-to book, rather, it is a compillation of a lifetime of observation by this highly intelligent man. The word leadership is difficult to define, and every author/expert has a different definition. Gardner points out the many qualities, and qualifiers which define a leader, and he does it better than any author on the subject I've read yet. I enjoyed this book a little less than Covey's "Principle Centered Leadership", yet it does hold it's own. Anyone aspiring to the leader/manager level would do well to read this and other books on the subject.

Gardner has done it again by writing an engaging and thought provoking guide on leadership principles. When you compare Gardner to the other great philosphical writers, such as Drucker or Bennis, Gardner's outline and nine principals fill in the gap. Leadership is not power but it includes power. Leadership is not status but it may include status. Leadership is a constant self-evaluation.

This is a book from one of the great observers of leaders in our country. Gardner emphasizes shared values and community building as the basis for great leadership. He also spends a great deal of time discussing renewal and how a leader must renew himself and his organization. Buy this book and Howard Gardner's Leading Minds.

Until I read this book, here's how I critiqued recent books on leadership: wish they would get some.
