Barbara Kellerman's Most Recent Book!

The End of Leadership was selected for the "long list" of the 2012 Financial Times and Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award.

The End of Leadership was ranked “Essential” by Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries.




Becoming a leader has become a mantra. The explosive growth of the “leadership industry" is based on the belief that leading is a path to power and money, a medium for achievement, and a mechanism for creating change. But there are other, parallel, truths: that leaders of every stripe are in disrepute; that the tireless and often superficial teaching of leadership has brought us no closer to nirvana; and that followers nearly everywhere have become, on the one hand, disappointed and disillusioned and, on the other, entitled and emboldened. The End of Leadership takes on this unsettling situation.
