Throughout my years as a leadership consultant, I’ve researched more than 25,000 historical events to select 52 of the most spectacular failures and triumphant achievements that offer timeless leadership lessons. These lessons are offered in my new book, How Leaders Decide: A Timeless Guide to Making Tough Choices, as well as in my workshops and keynote presentations.
