Leading minds : an anatomy of leadership

Author: Howard Gardner; Emma Laskin
Publisher: New York, NY : BasicBooks, ©1995.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Biography : EnglishView all editions and formats
While much has been written on the subject, a crucial component of leadership has been largely ignored: the mind of the leader and the minds of his or her followers. Linking the study of creativity and leadership, Gardner demonstrates the strong tie between traditional creators (artists and scientists) and leaders in the realms of business, politics, and the military.
