--Adam Grant, author of Originals and Give and Take "I've seen talented leaders unwittingly make the biggest mistakes of their careers simply because they don't understand the complexities and pitfalls of their own strengths. The Leadership Gap offers terrific insight and valuable wisdom for high achievers who want to understand the tendencies that stand between them and meaningful success."
