"The Art of Strategic Leadership is a practical look at strategy, which at times can be overcomplicated, or viewed as an abstract concept, by even the best leaders. This book is a highly recommended read for leaders at all levels of an organization. Strategic leadership is everyone′s business."
Tony I. Herrera, EdD, Chief Learning Officer, LPL Financial

"The book reminds us all that ′strategy′ is not the sole province of the CEO nor does good strategic thinking and implementation have to mean a revolutionary product or making the front page of the Wall Street Journal. Good strategic thinking is the logical extension of planning your work and working your plan."
Jim Wilcox, former EVP and COO, Sauer Danfoss

"If you want to know how to be a strategic change agent, you need to read The Art of Strategic Leadership. Until I read this book, I really didn′t understand that strategy is fundamentally an inside–out process. In order to succeed with any strategic priority or initiative, you have to look in the mirror and make sure you are equipped for the journey ahead."
Bill Rupp, President and COO, JBS USA Beef
