About the Author

ROBERT W. TERRY is president of the Terry Group, consultants and trainers in leadership, quality, and diversity. He recently completed eleven years as senior fellow and was founding director of the Reflective Leadership Center at the Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota. He is author of For Whites Only (1970), a study of racism.


"A fresh perspective on bringing people together in organizations to make something different happen. This author grapples courageously with the concept of courage and related notions about fear and violence, sacrifice and scapegoating, imitation and exposure.... He sees leadership as a remedy to we-they polarities; as an antidote to imitating, and thus, becoming, what we fear; and as the instrument, in John Gardner's recent words, of 'wholeness incorporating diversity.' The premise of this book, and its promise too, is that hard thinking occurs somewhere near the center of the human experience called leadership--and that for leaders, to propel ourselves 'beyond the comfort zone' is the beginning of wisdom. Bob Terry is well beyond the comfort zone in this revealing, often self-revealing, book. Leaders and readers--and especially those who are both--have reason to be grateful for this example of authenticity in action." --from the foreword by Harlan Cleveland
