Readers learn about the inner work of leaders such as Sara Lee CEO John Bryan, Hearst Magazine President Cathleen Black, Cherokee chief Wilma Mankiller, Princeton President Harold Shapiro, Chicago Cubs President Andy MacPhail, and Ogilvy & Mather CEO Shelly Lazarus.

Each leader tells a compelling story of translating the lessons of a lifetime into habits of mind that are central to his or her success.
