“High-Stakes Leadership has a ring of drama, for good reason. When risk is great and uncertainty low, missteps can have catastrophic results. When we think of high-stakes most of us can name the obvious situations. Too often, we think that people who lead in high-stakes matters are special people. They are not. You do not need to be a special person, with super-human powers and nerves of steel as the examples in this manifesto will show. What do you need? Courage, character, judgment, and fortitude.”
