Literary kudo for Warren Bennis

A book co-written by University Professor Warren Bennis has been honored with a silver medal in the 2008 Axiom Business Book Awards.

Judgment: How Winning Leaders Make Great Calls, was co-written by Noel M. Tichy of the University of Michigan.

Bennis and Tichy have spent decades studying and teaching leadership and advising top chief executive officers such as Jack Welch and Howard Schultz.

In Judgment, their first collaboration, the authors offer up a framework for managers and other leaders who make tough calls when the stakes are high and the right path is far from obvious.

The book, published in November by Penguin/Portfolio, was highlighted that month on BusinessWeek.com, which posted an excerpt. In addition, the book was on the top 25 list for February on the Web site 800CEORead.com.

Bennis is a Distinguished Professor of Business Administration at the USC Marshall School of Business and founding chairman of The Leadership Institute at USC.
