'Although he provides ample illustrations of leadership in history, what makes this book really important is the extension of leadership analysis to multigenerational, multi-locational, even multi-national organizations. Harkiolakis projects the leader as one who can create and sustain a probable future that can survive in the face of unintended consequences and unforeseeable circumstances.' - Dr. Thomas Rocco, retired president Leadership Institute of Seattle and founding provost Hellenic American University.
'There are a lot of books about leadership and I've read quite a few. Nicholas' book stands apart from them. It's neither the familiar 'How To' which far too often suggests you imitate the author nor an academic tome that considers the intense and self-challenging aspects of leadership as just another topic for dissection. Rather he has written a well-judged, thoughtful, review and analysis of the nature of leadership, the experience of leading and the challenges and contradictions therein. It's a handbook about what leadership has been, what it is today and what it can be in the future. Written in a clear and engaging style, Nicholas provides an impressive tour-de-force of the essence of leadership for an inquisitive and reflective audience.' - Simon Jones, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Cranfield University.
