"Leadership can (and often must) be learned by those who would hope to practice it. This is not to suggest that leadership is easy to teach. Ronald Heifetz teaches it exceedingly well, and this book is Sharon Daloz Park's invaluable illumination of the teaching method Heifetz has developed for ... men and women who come through Harvard's Kennedy School doors." -- Foreword by Warren Bennis.
