The Border: Life on the Line by Douglas Kent Hall

Praise for Leading the Way Leading the Way leaps beyond tired debates about whether leaders are born or made to show that they can be shaped, perfected, and polished. This persuasive book is packed with practical lessons about how the best companies turn gems of talent into crown jewels that enrich the whole enterprise. -Rosabeth Moss Kanter Harvard Business School, bestselling author of Evolve!, When Giants Learn to Dance, and The Change Masters Leading the Way offers actionable insights for business leaders of enterprises both large and small. Gandossy and Effron focus on the things that matter: leadership, talent, and programs that work. -Dave Cote CEO, Honeywell International When I first read the manuscript of Leading the Way, I was beside myself with excitement. I quickly dashed off notes to colleagues saying This is a very important book. You have to read it. Good leaders will be in very short supply very shortly. Either you implement what Gandossy and Effron recommend, or you risk watching from the sidelines. The good news is that the prescriptions in Leading the Way are clear, credible, proven, and doable. Be forewarned, however. This is not a fad-diet book for business. No quick fixes here. It will demand absolute dedication and tireless commitment. It will take time to work. But you have no choice. Do not hesitate. Read it now, and act on it immediately. -Jim Kouzes coauthor, The Leadership Challenge and chairman emeritus, Tom Peters Company Through anecdotes and examples stressing the importance of the leaders attitude toward people, philosophy, and process, Leading the Way provides the road map to building strong leaders and motivates the reader to promote leadership as a critical part of their companys DNA. An important and compelling book for leaders everywhere. -Randy MacDonald Senior Vice President, Human Resources, IBM Effective leadership is the difference between winning and losing in the marketplace. It is what makes strategy come to life. Creating a culture of leaders is an organizations best investment and competitive advantage. Gandossy and Effron offer useful insight into the patterns that top companies are using to attract, select, and develop organizational talent. -Robert L. Nardelli Chairman, President, and CEO, The Home Depot All companies produce goods or services, but only a few produce leaders. From studying the best, Robert Gandossy and Marc Effron have nailed the three great drivers of leadership development. To learn what companies require to become leader makers, Leading the Way is the way. -Michael Useem Professor and Director, the Wharton Center for Leadership and Change, University of Pennsylvania, and coauthor of Upward Bound Leading the Way . . . is a must-read for all leaders. It provides clear direction on how to build a strong leadership team at all levels, and leaves the reader with thought-provoking ideas to pursue. Both current and future leaders will benefit from the valuable suggestions in this book. -Susan Peters Vice President, Executive Development, GE
