Praise for Better Under Pressure

“What an intellectual feat! Justin Menkes takes leaders on a tour of the attributes of truly great CEOs, but the book is so much more than that. By showing us how those attributes connect and come to life, these stories reveal how the best leaders think and act under the hardest circumstances.”
Ralph Larsen, former Chairman and CEO, Johnson & Johnson

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading the interviews with the CEOs and Menkes's insightful analyses of the lessons learned. His concept of ‘reaching full potential’ hits the nail right on the head.”
Marijn Dekkers, CEO, Bayer AG

“Better Under Pressure is a well-researched, conceptually sound, practical leadership guidebook for global business executives. Instead of serving up simplistic leadership pabulum, Menkes provides a rigorous and clear-eyed look at the world stage facing CEOs and the critical judgments required for their companies to survive and thrive.”
Noel Tichy, Professor and Director, Global Corporate Citizenship Initiative at the Ross School, University of Michigan, and coauthor (with Warren Bennis) of Judgment: How Winning Leaders Make Great Calls

“Justin Menkes captures the essence of leadership in today's tough environment: getting the best out of your people. In this thoughtfully written book, he shows aspiring leaders how to successfully engage and inspire their people, both through their own actions, and through their ability to thrive under pressure.”
Irene Rosenfeld, Chairman and CEO, Kraft Foods Inc.

“A must-read for CEOs who face the tough pressures of today's marketplace. This book identifies several practical and realistic CEO leadership characteristics necessary for sustainable personal and corporate success.”
