are increasingly showing themselves to be in need of better
leadership and management. And all businesses will, in due course,
become green ones."-Garry D. Brewer, Yale School of Organization
"Gordon and Berry tap the experience and wisdom of those who
have actually and successfully addressed highly significant
organizational problems related to the environment."-Jack Ward

"Leading a major university calls for precisely the skills John
Gordon and Joyce Berry describe in this book. Even after a lifetime
of practicing environmental leadership, I find useful insights and
reminders in every chapter. Environmental Leadership Equals
Essential Leadership should be required reading for the leader
of every not-for-profit and for-profit organization."-Jared L.
Cohon, President, Carnegie Mellon University
"Leadership is an elusive concept typically taught as a
systemized process. This book is unique in contextualizing
leadership skills. This book should be placed by one's night table
and reread frequently."-Kristiina Vogt, author of Forests and
Society: Sustainability and Life Cycles of Forests in Human
