A recent article in the Wall Street Journal discussed the urgency of leadership training in today's economy. According to the article a lot of companies are increasing their budgets to deal with what they perceive to be a critical problem. The writer states:
"Already, some companies say they are finding they don't have the managers to spearhead new projects or step in for departing executives, a problem as companies try to shift into growth mode."
Feeding Your Leadership Pipeline, a new book by Daniel Tobin published by ASTD Press, is a resource these companies should invest in. And if you're working for a small- or medium-size company, it should be on your book shelf too. Jim Kouzes says the book is "the most comprehensive, practical, and inviting book on the fundamentals of leadership development."
