BOLD is about leaders in existing organizations – leaders who can see well beyond their current business and who have the will and willingness to invest in and relish the transformational challenge to win.

  • The last thing we need is another book on leadership.  What we do need, however, is an informed conversation about identifying and managing extraordinary leaders. Chris Mahai is supporting such a conversation with an accessible and integrated multi-part offering, consisting of her book, BOLD, an online self-assessment and other resources, blog and BOLD research.  I enjoyed the insights gleaned from over 100 executive interviews, plus I appreciate the lighthearted and pragmatic tone of Chris’s work.

  • I’ve been in lots of leadership discussions lately.  They tend to focus on people, not characteristics.  You know the drill, this person is a great leader and this one isn’t. Chris’s book BOLD is focused on the characteristics of leaders who can drive positive, dramatic and fast-growth in organizations. Who doesn’t want that?!

  • Herself a bold leader, Chris provides invaluable insight into the characteristics and requirements of leadership in a time of dynamic change.  Chris is adept at codifying insights from scores of interviews with leaders who’ve demonstrated acumen and ingenuity, who’ve navigated tough calls and hard decisions, and who’ve built and transformed organizations

  • I met Chris through her BOLD research process. She has put her finger on the qualities of curiosity, confidence, empathy, and trust that these rare leaders possess. This book has important information for all leaders, especially those engaged in some large organizational change.
