Books by David Traversi
Books by Michael Gerber
Traversi has written a bold, innovative book in which he practices what he preaches. Business books often have an issues/actions structure, illustrated with case studies. The case studies in The Source of Leadership are excellent, but the best are those where Traversi frankly describes the issues he identified in his own personal management style and how he applied the eight drivers to positive effect. The result is an illuminating set of guidelines for any leader.
—Jerry Weissman, author of the international best-sellers Presenting to Win and In the Line of Fire and president of Power Presentations, Ltd., a communications consultancy
As an executive search professional who has placed CEOs for thirty-five years, I weed out wannabes from real leaders on a daily basis. Leadership is three things: creating a culture, creating a plan, and hiring a team to execute. Traversi articulates this and the finer points of leadership very well. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to fine tune his or her leadership skills.
—Vito Bialla, CEO and founder of Bialla & Associates, Inc., executive search consultants in Sausalito, CA
This is a must-read for any executive interested in succeeding in the future. Traversi has clearly articulated a new paradigm of the leadership model. This how-to book is both instructional and provocative.
—J. Michael Chu, founder and managing Partner of Catterton Partners in Greenwich, CT, a $2 billion private equity firm focused on investing in fast growing, middle-market consumer companies.
This book is the leader's ideal antidote for a world that is getting more complex and faster by the minute. Now and in the future, the extraordinary leader is going to have to be grounded in reality, highly aware, and able to access powers deep within. The Source of Leadership is an excellent roadmap to that kind of leadership.
—Stephen M. Ross, founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of RELATED
—Beverly Engel, MFT, best-selling author of numerous books including Honor Your Anger and The Power of Apology
With the current state of affairs in world relations, politics, business, religion, and even the family, a new leadership paradigm is imperative. Traditional approaches to leadership just aren’t moving the needle. The Source of Leadership is a powerful outline of a new model of leadership that leaders and aspiring leaders can ignore only at their peril. Compelling, enjoyable, and timely!
