Warren Bennis (Great Leadership Innovator) Dies at 89

Warren G. Bennis, leadership authorWarren Bennis is one of those innovative teachers and authors who helped change how we think about leadership... and really how we LEAD. When I was first learning about leadership, his books were accessible (written in non-technical ways), motivational and instructional.

You can see many of the books he wrote at his author page on Amazon.

His book - On Becoming a Leader was one of THE most influential books for me in my own early learning and development as a leader. Later I devoured his books,

Organizing Genius
Geeks and Geezers
Why Leaders Can't Lead
An Invented Life: Reflections on Leadership and Change

He died last week. Here is a very nice reflection on Bennis and his influence that was in the New York Times.

In that review I saw a book I will get. It is several years old, but looks to be one of those well worth reading memoirs. It is:

Still Surprised: A Memoir of a Life in Leadership (2010 publishing date).
