"Centered Leadership is a personal and practical roadmap to taking on the challenge of leadership."
- Sheryl Sandberg, COO Facebook and author of Lean In
"Many have tried to define the common characteristics of leadership, but few have applied the rigorous, research-based approach that Joanna Barsh takes in Centered Leadership.
The result is a book that is both authoritative and actionable."- Dan Doctoroff, CEO & President of Bloomberg L.P.
"During in-depth interviews with over 165 men and women, [Barsh] gathered data on thriving and rising at work; she then articulated her new model for thinking about leadership development in two books: How Remarkable Women Lead
and the upcoming Centered Leadership
. They should be required reading for every young person- man or woman."-Jessica Bacal, director of the Smith College Wurtele Center for Work and Life and author of Mistakes I Made at Work
"Centered Leadership is the essential leadership guide for our times, as it puts personal development at the center of the corporate leadership endeavor. Here's a program that transforms your work and life balance from a challenge into a strategy."- Steven Pleshette Murphy, CEO Christie's International PLC
"Barsh’s voice is original, authoritative, and above all extraordinarily practical regardless of where we are in our leadership journey. I read this book smiling—it’s a rare personal guide for every generation.” -Andrea Jung, former Chairman and CEO, Avon Products
“Many of us in leadership positions tend to think that we instinctively know what it takes to inspire and motivate others. But CENTERED LEADERSHIP opened my eyes to the fact that great leadership is more a science than we realize. Barsh and Lavoie draw on deep research and fieldwork to genuinely help us build our capabilities. “ -Gary E. Knell, President and CEO, National Geographic Society
The Centered Leadership Project may have begun as an investigation into what makes remarkable women leaders tick, but after reading Barsh’s excellent second book, I have become convinced that she and Lavoie have their fingers on what anyone - woman or
man - can do to become the kind of inspirational leader everyone will want to follow. -D. Ronald Daniel, Former Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company
"In Centered Leadership
Joanna Barsh has given us a highly effective guide to building the more comprehensive, often deeply human, leadership skills that this complex, fast paced era requires."- Luis Ubinas, former CEO Ford Foundation
