In July 1969, NASA astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong became the first people to land on the moon. Their spacecraft’s computer was supposed to manage the landing, but right before touchdown, Armstrong saw it maneuvering the lunar lander to the boulder-strewn edge of a crater. He immediately took manual command and landed safely. Armstrong’s quick-thinking action demonstrates the initiative and know-how of genuine leadership, as Korn Ferry CEO Gary Burnison spells out. With fascinating leadership vignettes and real-life leadership lessons, his engaging text teaches you how to develop your leadership edge.
