As a practical guide, it is invaluable.

There are hundreds of magic recipes in the market about the "most important attributes of great leaders", but most of them provide only limited help to translating these lessons into concrete leadership growth programmes across the whole organisation. This book is very different. It integrates the teaching on very thoroughly researched, highly practical and wide-ranging leadership development approaches with a fictitious implementation story, which stays entertaining until the very end.Bernd Uhe, Global Head of Human Resources, Pictet Group

I find this book very illuminating. It is one of the best pieces I read about leadership since Leadership at Scale is a unique blend of cutting edge, field-tested research on developing the right leadership at scale, and a roadmap to make it happen in practice. The book is both: a state-of-the-art reference for the different research findings on Leadership and a practical handbook of how to make sustainable and lasting change happen. It has everything for firms and their leaders to cope with today's increasingly complex, volatile and hence challenging world.—Bruno Pfister, Chairman of Rothschild Bank AG
