Warren Bennis has made a big name for himself over the years as a business management guru. He’s been an advisor to Fortune 500 companies and to presidents. Along the way, he’s thought a lot about leadership — what makes a great CEO, general, president.

Lately he’s decided that it all comes down to judgment. Courage, vision, experience are all fine, but in the end, good judgment is what makes the difference.

As we elect a new president, will we choose judgment over experience? And how do we know the difference?

This hour, On Point: Business guru Warren Bennis on leadership.

-James Hattori

Guests:

Warren Bennis, distinguished professor of business administration at the University of Southern California and author of the new book, “Judgment: How Winning Leaders Make Great Calls.”

Jack Beatty, On Point news analyst and senior editor at The Atlantic Monthly.
