On Becoming A Leader
Author: Warren Bennis
Published in: 2009

  • What’s it about: Bennis criticises what he considers a dearth of leadership in the world. While he provides practical guidance on how to fill this vacuum, his philosophically and psychologically rich book tries to define leadership, which, according to him, requires self-knowledge and clear goals.
  • Key takeaways: With such tumult all over the world in these uncertain times, the importance of leadership in everyday life has become more relevant than ever. On becoming a leader provides the ideal framework for this discourse.
  • Why read it now: The author does an excellent job of communicating what it takes to be a leader. The book shows the author’s passion for the subject.
  • Quotable Quotes: One person can live on a desert island without leadership. Two people, if they’re totally compatible, could probably get along and even progress. If there are three or more, someone has to take the lead.
