MEDIA REVIEWS

"Great discoveries require leadership, but that leadership is as often flawed as it is highly skilled. The thought-provoking essays in Leadership and Discovery brilliantly illustrate that fundamental discoveries follow from the coincidental joining of a particular context and certain key leadership abilities. The well-rounded repertoire of managerial skills described in leadership texts is generally not present." - Alice H. Eagly, Professor of Psychology and of Management and Organizations and the James Padilla Chair of Arts and Sciences, Northwestern University

"One hundred years ago, leadership and discovery were nearly synonymous. As Goethals and Wren argue in this new and path-breaking book, that is no longer the case and there are many domains - technology and medicine for instance - in which the two phenomena are overlapping and distinct. This book adds needed and modern up-dates to many of the questions that leadership scholars have wrestled with for decades and it poses new questions with which the next generation of leadership students will need to cope. This is a must read book for anyone interested in leadership and discovery!" - David M. Messick, Morris and Alice Kaplan Professor Emeritus of Ethics and Decision in Management, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University.
