Goodwin asks and answers questions like: Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times, or do the times make the leader? This seminal work provides an accessible and essential roadmap for aspiring and established leaders in every field.&nbsp;<strong>I highly recommend&nbsp;</strong><a href="https://doriskearnsgoodwin.com/" target="_blank"><strong><em>Leadership: In Turbulent Times</em></strong></a><strong>, and you can find out more about it at&nbsp;</strong><a href="https://doriskearnsgoodwin.com/" target="_blank"><strong>doriskearnsgoodwin.com</strong></a><strong>.</strong></p>
