In Wisdom Is Not Enough: Reflections on Leadership and Teams, award-winning author Jeff Appelquist draws on his twenty-five years of real-world experience as a military officer, lawyer, corporate executive, and entrepreneur to share his hard-won and compelling insights into what makes great leaders and their teams tick. The book's forty chapters represent a compilation of articles that Jeff wrote as a columnist for his local business newspaper over eighteen months from the spring of 2009 to the fall of 2010 during a tremendously difficult time when both the American and world economies struggled mightily. The writings all delve into some facet of leadership and teams, but from a variety of perspectives. Topics range from every type of modern-day business issue, challenge, and story, to the French and Indian War, the journey of Lewis and Clark, the American Civil War, Roald Amundsen's trek to the South Pole, disasters at Mann Gulch, Montana, and high up on Mount Everest, the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the lessons learned from golf and chess. Leadership lessons are all around us, if we just look closely enough. Wisdom Is Not Enough is a remarkably original and profoundly inspiring book that will motivate leaders everywhere, not just those in business but in every field, from government, to the military, to non-profits, to academe and beyond, to take a closer look at their own individual leadership essence and to reassess the dynamics of the teams that they lead. Wisdom Is Not Enough is an indispensable guidebook for anyone who is living the great adventure, as well as the never-ending challenge, of an ongoing leadership journey.
