About the Book

Anyone who remembers a moment when his or her life suddenly required an unprecedented leap of faith will appreciate the power of the stories in Leadership Moments: Turning Points That Changed Lives and Organizations. Each of the ten contributing authors took that leap, despite personal risks and odds that defied success. Every situation in this book represents a unique turning point, best described as a "Leadership Moment."

For example, CEO Ron Lesniak was challenged to resurrect his company in the turbulent aftermath of 9/11, while Jon Corey's lessons in corporate survival were gained on a Vietnam battlefield. Arthur Jue learned powerful lessons when IBM unexpectedly slashed thousands of jobs; Carolyn Salerno improved the academic performance - and future prospects - of students in a school in danger of losing its local control.

Leadership Moments offers courage to business people facing uncertainty and opposition. As the contributors found from personal experience, leadership emerges when we trust ourselves, tap into inner wisdom, maintain our integrity, and always aim for the highest good.

Ultimately, whether we are veteran managers dealing with far-reaching business issues, or new recruits feeling our way in a complex corporate culture - everyone can say "yes" to a Leadership Moment!
