"This book is well researched, covers the right ground, gives some fascinating examples of great programs from all over the world and extracts the learning from all of this. For me, it is the right book at the right time." * Elliott Masie, CEO and President, The Masie Centre *
"This book should be required reading for everyone in leadership development... Anyone paying attention to its messages will deliver better and more effective leadership programmes. Highly recommended." * Donald H Taylor, Chair, Learning and Performance Institute *
"This books is extremely well written, accessible and easy to understand, whilst being very well researched. Nigel Paine has a unique perspective on what makes leadership development effective and it will help anyone interested or involved in this field." * Dr Annie McKee, Senior Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania and Director of the PennCLO Executive Doctoral Program *
"This book provides a solid foundation: a conceptual framework, and a broad range of grounded case studies, sharing both design and execution stories, tales of aspiration, tales of learning, tales of failure. It is this willingness to ground the work in a succession of practical examples that differentiates this for many of the other leadership texts that adorn my bookshelf." * Julian Stodd, Founder of Sea Salt Learning *
"Leadership development is a dangerous game: easy to commit to, much harder to win. Nigel Paine's new book Building Leadership Development Programmes plots a sensible course eschewing high theory in favour of multiple, grounded, pragmatic and freely shared case studies....It is this willingness to ground the work in a succession of practical examples that differentiates it from many of the other leadership texts that adorn my bookshelf." * Inside Learning Technologies and Skills magazine *
"[Nigel's] books are very practical and immediately applicable" * Adam Stedham, Senior Vice President, Learning Solutions at GP Strategies Corporation *
"[It] was a pleasure to read....There were some examples that I enjoyed in particular, such as the BP and the SeaSalt example, mostly because they were new to me and provided a lot of insight in how others approach big challenges.... I also LOVED chapter 11 (The Shape of the Future). It gave me a completely different perspective on the potential of AI and VR." * Mirjam Neelen, Sr. Learning & Development Consultant at Learnovate Centre *
"My team is presently in the process of designing a flagship programme for scientific leaders...and I've no doubt it will be incredibly useful in shaping our approach." * Director, People Development and Operations at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard *
