In Reinventing Leadership, Bennis and Townsend compare and contrast their leadership beliefs. Bennis predicts an end to the military-style management of the past. He expects leaders to acknowledge and reward the accomplishments of others. Townsend wants to see empowered workers have fun while they overcome obstacles. His experience as CEO of Avis Rent-a-Car led him to look for unusual solutions when faced with the daunting task of reengineering a major corporation.
