    "Everyone a Leader: A Guide to Leading High-Performance Organizations for Engineers and Scientists is an exciting and future-forward book. Using excellent, timely models, David Colcleugh introduces a new way to develop leadership for high-performance organizations in the increasingly technologically driven business landscape. His depth of experience allows him to provide a unique perspective on leadership for engineers and scientists."


    Kimberly Woodhouse, Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, Queen’s University

    “David Colcleugh’s Everyone a Leader: A Guide to Leading High-Performance Organizations for Engineers and Scientists illustrates the progression from ‘engineer’ to ‘engineer-leader’ to ‘leader-engineer.’ His suggestions align with what’s required in today’s environment of technological innovation, globalization, and complex socio-economic-cultural dynamics.”


    Angela Thieman Dino, co-creator of the Engineering Leadership Program, University of Colorado at Boulder

    “It is, in my opinion, vital to future competitiveness that we educate engineers and scientists with the best blend of theory, practice, and context. Everyone a Leader: A Guide to Leading High-Performance Organizations for Engineers and Scientists brings a practice-based approach with the potential to accelerate the transition of early career engineers and scientists from educated specialists to significant contributors.”


    Simon Pitts, Director, The Gordon Engineering Leadership Program at Northeastern University
