Is Leadership History? – Essays On The Epochal Threat To Leadership

Everybody knows what it takes to be a good leader; what few seem to know is why there are so few takers. The essays in Is Leadership History? provide answers to this deeper question, demonstrating the need to cultivate vision, virtue, and vigilance in a civilisation facing an existential crisis. By considering leadership in relation to history, classic literature, science, psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, logic, sex, virtue, and many other subjects, the author emphasises that education, as opposed to skills-training, is the only way to produce leaders in our troubled world.

“It is rare that we come upon such a priceless collection of disruptive insights, intelligence, and inspiration. Andre has not only broken through the overwhelming plethora of leadership 101 pabulum found within publishing circles today, but has dared to capably and candidly shed long-overdue light on the alarming realities of past, present, and future leadership.”

–Dennis J. Pitocco, Publisher and Executive Editor of the award-winning BIZCATALYST360.COM

“Andre van Heerden’s books and seminars are highly- recommended leadership resources – the wisdom in this collection of essays included. He has a unique ability to draw wisdom from philosophy, history, psychology, leadership principles, and his vast and diverse experience, skillfully binding it all together and drilling down to the essential elements of purposeful leadership.”

–Lehan J. Stemmet Ph.D.
