′Leadership Results is a must–read for anyone wanting to take their self–leadership, and the leadership capacity of their organization, to the next level.′
Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author of TRIGGERS
′Turning uncertainty to deeper understanding and ambiguity to agility are two big challenges of leadership today. Sebastian′s book, Leadership Results, gives you the profound and pragmatic tools to meet these challenges.′
Kevin Cashman, Korn Ferry, CEO & Executive Development, bestselling author of Leadership from the Inside Out and The Pause Principle
′Sebastian Salicru has written a delightful book, full of inspiration and practical advice. He appreciates that you can′t be a leader without any followers, and properly asserts that the heart of leadership is the relationship between those who lead and those who would willingly follow. I loved the examples and stories, which make the book come alive, and valued the well–documented research to support his insights.′
