A Failure of Nerve

A Failure of Nerve: Leadership in the Age of the Quick Fix

by Edwin Friedman

“A Failure of Nerve is essential reading for all leaders, be they parents or presidents, corporate executives or educators, religious superiors or coaches, healers or generals, managers or clergy. Friedman’s insights about our regressed, “seatbelt society,” oriented toward safety rather than adventure, help explain the sabotage that leaders constantly face today.”(reposted from amazon.com)
