MEDIA REVIEWS
Advance praise for Linda Ginzel's CHOOSING LEADERSHIP

"Linda knows a whole lot about leadership--about what it is, and more importantly, what it isn't. One of the things she knows is that leaders don't lead by lecturing, but by acting. And so rather than writing a textbook that tells you how to become a leader, she has written a workbook that shows you. Choosing Leadership doesn't ask you to read it--it asks you to participate in it." --Daniel Gilbert, Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author, Stumbling on Happiness

"This workbook is a tool that everyone--from undergraduate and graduate students to executives--will benefit from when striving to become their best selves and perform up to their potential." --Sian Beilock, president, Barnard College, and author, Choke and How the Body Knows Its Mind

"Instead of focusing on stories of others' leadership, Linda Ginzel has written a book about your development as a leader. Filled with self-diagnostic, developmental exercises based on Ginzel's many years as a leadership teacher, this book promises to change people's thoughts and behaviors in profound ways." --Jeffrey Pfeffer, Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior, Stanford Graduate School of Business, and author, Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time

"For a very low price, Ginzel will take you on a journey where you make your own choices about creating effective leadership actions. She will not make you a leader. Rather, she will guide you to choices that will allow you to lead--and to lead effectively. Ginzel uses ample behavioral science in the journey, but the unique contribution of this book is her passion for providing you a pathway to make great choices about whether, when, and how to lead." --Max H. Bazerman, Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School, and author, The Power of Noticing

"Linda Ginzel has brought social psychological concepts and tools that she has created to countless audiences. As a result, many of her students have greater access to their unique leadership qualities. This workbook opens this path for personal development to a much larger audience. And it's doable!" --Harry L. Davis, Roger L. and Rachel M. Goetz Distinguished Service Professor of Creative Management, University of Chicago Booth School of Business

"According to Ginzel, leaders create a different future. And she walks her readers through an intentional journey for learning how to do that. Soulful, pragmatic, and scientifically grounded, this book will change your future." --Sally Blount, dean, Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University
