"""Perhaps no more important challenge faces leaders today than how to lead in horizontal organizations where they cannot just give orders but must rely principally on persuasion and negotiation. In this wise, practical, and lucid book, Jeswald Salacuse advises us on how to succeed in this new world. I recommend it!""

-- William Ury, Harvard University; coauthor of Getting to Yes; author of The Third

""The real trick to leading a university, business, or country is figuring out how to lead other leaders. Being able to sell other leaders on your policies and yourself is almost always the basis of success or failure in human enterprises. Professor Salacuse, who knows what he's writing about in this area, hits the nail on the head.""

-- Leslie H. Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, and former New York Times columnist.

“Jeswald Salacuse has made a significant contribution to the study of leadership with this practical and accessible book. Leaders of many types of organizations -- business, government, multilateral,and the academia -- will find his systematic approach enlightening and, most important, useful.”

-- William J. Rainer, Former Chairman, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, and Cofounder, Greenwich Capital Markets, Inc.

“Great stuff, full of revelations on making a team out of the star players in any outfit, and leading it on to victory.”

-- John Galvin, General U.S. Army, retired; former Supreme Allied Commander, NATO

“Leading exceptional talent requires insight, ability -- and Jes Salacuse's latest book, Leading Leaders. This wonderfully organized and clearly written work provides a leadership model that sets forth a series of imperatives to increase the effectiveness of a leader -- useful for a high school teacher and a corporate CEO. The leadership paradigm suggested in the book seems so basic, yet when put in context, provides tactical solutions to real-world challenges.”

-- Alan Rappaport, President, Family Wealth Advisors, Bank of America"
