Advance praise for Leading with Kindness:
“Familiar notions about ‘leadership’ and ‘kindness’ are unseated when the terms are redefined by two savvy observers, doctors Bill Baker and Michael O’Malley. Then, with help from a roster of superachievers, Baker and O’Malley do a captivating mash-up, creating a timely concept sure to motivate any ambitious reader who really wants to ‘make things happen.’” — Charles Dolan, Chairman, Cablevision Systems
“Kindness, as the authors define it, is a sign of strength, and every organization could use more of it. This book is a thought-provoking guide for leaders, and aspiring leaders, who want to stand out from the crowd and achieve extraordinary things.” — Anne Fisher, Fortune magazine and CNNMoney.com “Ask Annie” workplace columnist
“The American workplace would be a lot more productive, and fun, if only managers would follow the advice of this book. Let’s hope they do. Baker and O’Malley show us through numerous examples that kindness brings out the best in workers and is the key characteristic of great leaders.” — Susie Gharib, Anchor, PBS-TV’s Nightly Business Report
“Baker and O’Malley transcend the muscular clichés of the endless sports manuals on leadership and vanity reflections of egomaniacal executives to reveal genuinely strong leaders whose success is anchored in their integrity, credibility, vision, insight, inclusion, and fairness. There are no coercive, pampered bullies in this book. I know most of the leaders profiled in this book firsthand and find this book to be accurate and an indisputable reminder that good guys can finish first.” — Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, author of Firing Back and the Senior Associate Dean and Lester Crown Professor of Management, Yale School of Management
