Publisher's Summary

Candid conversations with top leaders around the world on how they approached pivotal moments in their careers.
No Fear of Failure offers insightful, candid conversations with some of the world's top leaders in business, politics, education, and philanthropy - each giving a first-person account of how they approached crucial, career-defining moments. Gary Burnison, CEO of Korn/Ferry International, the world's largest executive recruiting firm, sits down one-on-one with a highly select and elite corps, and together they openly discuss how they handled (often very publicly) war, economic downturn, corporate turnover, and even retirement. Together these world-class leaders show the risks one must be willing to take, as well as the vision, resilience, and compassion necessary to lead.

Includes original interviews with Michael Bloomberg, Carlos Slim, Eli Broad, Indra Nooyi, Drew Gilpin Faust, Anne Mulcahy, Vincente Fox, Lt. General Franklin L. "Buster" Hagenbeck, Coach John McKissick, Liu Chuanzhi, Daniel Vasella, and Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo.
Explores the common traits great leaders exhibit: vision, compassion, resilience, competitiveness, purpose, humility, team-building skills, entrepreneurial spirit, perseverance, self-awareness, empowerment, and being a catalyst.
Taking readers into executive suites, government offices, battlefields, and football fields, No Fear of Failure shows how great leaders make lasting impact.

Tricky sample. ALL interviews re-read by narrator

What did you like best about this story?

High level interviewees

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

You only hear the narrators voice. You never hear anyone interviewed in there voice. I thought the samples of the actual people interviewed was deceptive.
