Since its inception, higher education in the U.S. has claimed to develop leaders. But is this claim justified? Leadership Reckoning takes to task American colleges and universities for their haphazard, incoherent, evidence-free approaches to developing students as leaders and offers a principle-driven, outcome-oriented blueprint for how effective leader development can occur. It’s high time that happens, and Leadership Reckoning points the way.

Leadership Reckoning for Business...

Co-author Libby Gill draws on the principles and practices articulated in the book to guide the business world to more effectively and aggressively build leadership capabilities in her powerful new keynote and coaching program Leadership Reckoning: Is Your Organization Creating the Leaders You Need?

“Take it from me, as someone who has worked in both government and business: leadership matters!

In the face of global challenges like the climate crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for good leaders in every part of society has never been greater. In Leadership Reckoning, the Doerr Institute for New Leaders pioneers a data-driven approach to make the development of moral leadership a core function of college education. This book is a must-read for the leaders of today and tomorrow.”

Former Vice President of the United States of America

“Young people truly are the future of any country,

and the degree to which they understand and embrace the keys to successful leadership has a profound effect not only on their future but also on that of their community and country. If ever there was a time for increased focus on what works in leadership training for young people in the U.S., now is it!
