"This book teaches students how to literally build their leadership from within and expand it to the world around them to create and manage change. I like that it begins with individual then grows into relationships, others, community, etc."
"Relevant and useful. I thought that Middlebrooks was masterful in conveying an operational definition of leadership. Also, the first chapter provided the reader with a blueprint and foreshadowing of the entire book."
"The contents are well planned, and the content/reading level is appropriate for an undergraduate leadership course. This book includes a greater focus on culture, creativity and decision making."
"I discovered a leadership text which discusses the nuances of design thinking and leadership within the context of change/improvement."
