Marshall Goldsmith, World′s #1 Leadership Thinker

Since then he has led teams to extraordinary performance in businesses ranging from technology to manufacturing to landscape gardening. Inspired Leadership offers an insider′s look at how Gaskell achieved these remarkable results, and includes the strategies, frameworks and real–world examples for anyone who wants to develop the skills to become an Inspired Leader.

Filled with motivational anecdotes and practical instructions, this guide to inspirational leadership will become your go–to resource for navigating the leader′s role.
