Leading Minds

An Anatomy Of Leadership

From a pioneering psychologist and education expert, a sweeping examination of how great leaders harness the power of stories

In Leading Minds, Howard E. Gardner and his research associate, Emma Laskin, take a novel approach to the study of leadership, exploring it from a cognitive perspective to glean powerful lessons for decision makers of all sorts. Drawing on Gardner’s groundbreaking work on intelligence and creativity, they show how effective leaders both create new stories and tap into the power of existing narratives. With deep understanding, Gardner and Laskin consider a wide spectrum of leaders-including Manhattan Project director J. Robert Oppenheimer, Pope John XXIII, Eleanor Roosevelt, Margaret Thatcher, and more-to offer fascinating insights about the messages and the methods of influential people.

Updated and expanded by the author, Leading Minds stands as the definitive psychological study of leadership.

Reader Reviews

Praise

"An insightful book...[one of the] leadership classics."—Chicago Tribune
"Full of insights and illuminating detail.... Effective leaders put words to the formless longings and deeply felt needs of others. They create communities out of words. In Leading Minds, Gardner shows that he is just such a leader, able to articulate and clarify what many of us have been thinking on the subject for a long time."—Warren Bennis, Harvard Business
