"It is time we realized that the top-down model of leadership often guarantees failure in professional communities. Peter DeWitt offers us a way forward with a revolutionary new approach to leadership that recognizes that everyone’s brain is required for complex change―not just the brain of the "leader."

Jim Knight

"Peter DeWitt is a proven leader for other leaders. DeWitt is a hugely accomplished writer, stellar blogger on social media, and the most humble leader you could meet."

Andy Hargreaves
