Favourable Review by Russ Volckmann (Editor of Integral Leadership Review, 2010)
"McGregor has differentiated herself from many of the other books we find on leaders by confronting the question of leadership...grounded in morality. What strikes me about this work is twofold: (1) the extraordinary breadth of scholarship represented and (2) the commitment to action. This book may be heavy reading for many citizen/consumers, but it is well worth the time spent."
