Editorial Reviews

'Tom Cummings has brought a new perspective to our executives and our business, which really changed the way our leaders view their jobs. His work has helped our leaders to be conscious of the shifts in our industry landscape so that we can respond faster and better.' Val Gooding, Chief Executive, BUPA"I found the book Leadership Landscapes absolutely riveting. The landscapes way of thinking is extremely powerful. As I went on, I found myself having quite a few Eureka! moments." Jean-François Rischard, Former Vice-President for Europe, The World Bank; Author of bestseller: High Noon 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them?"This is an inspiring book. It provides good medicine for an increasingly complex world, where we need more inspired leadership and a path across many landscapes to get us there." Jules Kortenhorst, CEO, European Climate Foundation and former Member of Dutch Parliament"There is no shortage of books about 'leadership' but this one is worth it because it prompts in us recognition of something deep in human consciousness about our relationship with others, as well as provides some new ideas and perspectives." Christine Loh, CEO, Civic Exchange"It's a travellers guide for the modern CEO, full of encouraging stories and cautionary tales - hints for doing and ways of being. If you're thinking of taking your business beyond predictable terrain, it's well worth packing on the journey." David Pearl, Managing Partner, The Pearl Group"Concise but integrative, well-researched but practical, Leadership Landscapes is for anyone serious about understanding and practicing leadership in its inner and outer dimensions." Richard A. Couto, Ed. Reflections on Leadership; Senior Scholar, James MacGregor Burns Academy of Leadership."Leadership Landscapes clearly shows that there is nothing as practical as a good theory. Well grounded in practice the authors show where the future of leadership is going. A must read!" Fons Trompenaars, author global business bestseller Riding the Waves of Culture and Servant Leadership across Cultures
