      Luckily, we now have a one-stop shop that provides book recommendations from hundreds of leaders, including Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Elon Musk, and Jeff : Marcel Schwantes. Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning.

    With skilled, humble leadership, even the most nightmarish of bureaucracies can be reformed into an efficient and productive endeavor. That was among the core messages Chancellor Robert M. Gates ’65, L.H.D. ’98 shared with a packed audience in Phi Beta Kappa Hall Thursday afternoon during a talk and question-and-answer session about his new book, A Passion for Leadership: Lessons on Change. In ninth grade, I came up with a new form of rebellion. I hadn't been getting good grades, but I decided to get all A's without taking a book home. I didn't go to math class, because I knew enough and had read ahead, and I placed within the top 10 people in the nation on an aptitude exam.

    The author’s real-life examples are the strongest part of the book, as they show a side of bureaucracy and of upper-level leadership not often revealed to the public. These scenarios give readers a better understanding about how these organizations function. "The task of reforming institutions is a difficult one,” writes Gates.   We begin our exciting journey together through the classics of Mussar [ethical development] literature in search of spiritual excellence. Our first work is “The Gates of Repentance”, by the great and holy Rabbeinu Yonah. From here, with G-d ’s help alone and in the process of time, we will go to Bachya Ibn Pakudah’s “The Duties of the Heart”, Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto’s.
