Bennis, W. G. (1999).  Old Dogs, New Tricks: On Creativity and Collaboration.
"The lack of candor is one of the biggest tragedies in organizations because we don't speak truth to power. And so people who know the truth don't speak the truth where it would help. In my own study, I discovered that seven out of ten people will not speak up even if they know that what their boss is going to do is going to get him and the company in trouble. They will not be candid. They are not encouraged to speak up—they see dissenters being punished, not rewarded, and so the truth never gets out. There is no incentive for speaking up." (p. 34)
Bennis, W. G., & Biederman P. W. (1998).  Organizing Genius: The Secrets of Creative Collaboration.
"There is a lesson here that could transform our anguished workplaces overnight. People ache to do good work. Given a task they believe in and a chance to do it well, they will work tirelessly for no more reward than the one they give themselves." (p. 215)
Bennis, W. G., & Nanus B. (2003).  Leaders: strategies for taking charge.
"We must learn to perceive power for what it really is. Basically, it's the reciprocal of leadership." (p. 16)
Bennis, W. G. (1994).  On Becoming a Leader.
"In sum, we have the means within us to free ourselves from the constraints of the past, which lock us into imposed roles and attitudes. By examining and understanding the past, we can move into the future unencumbered by it. We become free to express ourselves, rather than endlessly trying to prove ourselves." (p. 79)
