Book Offers Leadership Insights


    ‘All in, all the time’ captures the essence of fully engaged and completely committed leadership, as described in the newly released book ‘The Twelve Absolutes of Leadership’ by Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn/Ferry International, an executive recruiting firm and provider of talent management solutions. The book offers insight from his lifetime in leadership, interacting with some of the world’s top leaders in the C-suite and boardrooms, as well as heads of state. “Leadership is the eighth wonder of the world – easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize,” he says. “Leading is less about analytics and strategy and much more about making a difference in the lives of others.” In the book, Burnison shakes up the often overly analyzed and unnecessarily complicated leadership theories and distills leadership to its core essence – empowering and inspiring others around a shared purpose.
