Episode 5: Warren Bennis- biography

including both Kennedy and Reagan, has written more than twenty
books on the topic of leadership and lectured and consulted

of New York in Buffalo and then spent seven years as president of
the University of Cincinnati. This experience taught him a number
of important things about leadership.
