Summary

  • "Pioneering psychologist and education expert Howard Gardner applies a cognitive lens to leadership identifying one of its crucial but long neglected components: the minds of leaders and the people who follow them ... Shows how effective leaders create and embody new stories that wrestle successfully with stories that already populate the minds of their followers. Gardner imposes his highly original framework on a wide spectrum of leaders from Manhattan Project director J. Robert Oppenheimer to Pope John XXIII to offer fascinating revelations about the messages and the methods of eleven remarkable leaders."--P. [4] of cover.
