Boundless Leadership offers readers the insights, wisdom, scientific evidence, and practical advice they need to become the leaders they hope and want to be — leaders who are at once caring, compassionate, clear-eyed, and effective. The book is an engaging and quick read, but one that readers will want to come back to again and again for inspiration and guidance. If everyone who is a leader, or aspires to be one, reads and absorbs the lessons of this book — as I hope they will — the world will be a better place.

In a world increasingly powered by connectedness, interdependence and networks, the ability to shed historical win-lose thinking and embrace boundless leadership is critical for the success of any leader, organization or society.

Boundless Leadership builds an understanding that leadership comes from within, that each of us can impact positive change in ourselves, our organizations, our personal lives, even the world. It doesn’t stop there, the book gives practical methods to shift thinking and behavior to achieve success. I cannot help but think how helpful this work would have been for my younger self.

There has never been a more “appropriate” time for this book. Leaders today struggle to transform as they are defined by archaic stereotypes and presented with conventional approaches for improvement. Boundless Leadership delivers a path for those ready for self-exploration and to begin their own personal journeys of transformation. The practical methods offered by Elazar and Joe apply to the leaders in all of us and transcend our personal and professional lives. The future of authentic and empathetic leadership starts here. For those who embrace it, the positive impact in your lives, organizations, communities and the world are endless.

Boundless Leadership is a deeply comprehensive and science-backed manifesto for enlightened leadership — an essential manual for leaders, change-makers and anyone who wants to make a difference and develop their full potential.

— Emma Seppälä, PhD. Author of The Happiness Track

Boundless Leadership is a ground-breaking book that redefines what it means to be a true leader today. Rather than a superficial list of mundane and trite qualities found among “great leaders,” Boundless Leadership takes a deep dive into the leader him/herself to identify the critical characteristics that define authentic, mindful and effective leadership in a world full of sloganeering. This book is as much for the leader as it is for those he or she leads. A unique and progressive take on the organization of the future, Joe and Elazar are to leadership what Demming was to quality. A must read for both current and aspiring leaders.

— Ron Insana. Senior Analyst, CNBC
