Praise for The Center for Creative Leadership Handbook of Leadership Development

"The most authoritative, comprehensive, and practical source for developing leadership ca- pability in any organization. The handbook integrates the very best of theory and practice, and serves as a valuable road map to creating a foundation of systemic leadership excel- lence, now and for the future."
THOMAS J. GRIFFIN, vice president, organizational learning and chief teaching officer, U.S. Cellular

"Only from the Center for Creative Leadership could we expect to see such a rich, authori- tative, and actionable set of the latest resources for developing leaders. All those who have responsibility for developing leaders (senior executives, leader development professionals, and leaders themselves), as well as those who study leadership, need to read this book."
DOUGLAS T. "TIM" HALL, founding director, Executive Development Roundtable, Boston University

"The changes in the third edition of The Handbook of Leadership Development make a good book even better. The authors provide a broad perspective on the most relevant topics for academics and practitioners. The emphasis on development of collective leadership capac- ity as well as development of individual leaders is consistent with the growing recognition that strategic leadership, shared leadership, and flexible change leadership are essential for sustained organizational effectiveness in a dynamic global economy. The book is a valuable source of knowledge and practical advice for anyone who is responsible for providing or managing leadership development."
GARY YUKL, professor of management, University at Albany-SUNY

"We consider leadership to be the single most important factor influencing the performance of our organization. This book is brilliant in defining what we need to do and what capabilities we need to assist our leaders to grow and develop."
MORTEN RAABE, vice president of Organisation Development, WW ASA, Oslo, Norway
