"From the classroom to the boardroom, Landing in the Executive Chair is required reading for anyone looking to implement effective leadership strategies. Dr. Henman mines both tried and tested theories, as well as the styles and applications of successful leaders across the spectrum. A must-have to inspire and motivate any organization."
"I especially liked the segment on Abraham Lincoln. His leadership and commitment to a cause kept his Cabinet together. The mark of a good leader in the executive chair is the person who can so train his followers that they say to themselves, 'We don't need him--we can do it ourselves.'"
"The book provides a comprehensive framework of 'must do's' for new CEOs and serves as an important reminder of key tasks for CEOs who have been on the job a while."
"As a new CEO, I found effective leadership of my board to be a difficult challenge. With the help of Linda's insight and leadership, I am now able to leverage their collective experience and wisdom to improve the quality of my decisions and execution."
"Linda's observations and advice would normally merit a shelf of books. With finesse and style she has managed to assemble it all here in one highly readable book that will become for you an extraordinarily dependable reference."
"The discussion of strategy and tactics [in the book] forced me to take a second look at where we're headed. As I look back on my years in business trust, teamwork, culture, and inspired leadership do make the difference for longevity."
"Linda, this is your best work yet. Congratulations! I look forward to recommending it to my peers."
