Leading Wisely in the AMBA Book Club

Leading Wisely

Manfred Kets de Vries


An exclusive reliance on knowledge, data and information yields a superficial leadership style lacking in depth and discernment, according to Leading Wisely.

In its exploration of what it means to lead with wisdom, the book argues that what’s more important in the wisdom equation is possessing humility, judgment, empathy, compassion and night vision.

It contains anecdotes and tales from a variety of spiritual and cultural traditions that aim to enrich and lend a deeper significance to the choices we make as leaders and members of organisations.

Manfred Kets de Vries is a professor of leadership development and organisational change at INSEAD and director of its ‘The Challenge of Leadership: Creating Reflective Leaders’ programme. He was also the founder and director of INSEAD’s Global Leadership Center.
