LEADERSHIP IS NOT ABOUT RACE
- BOOK TESTIMONIALS

What Others are Saying about Dr. Teddie E. Malangwasira and Leadership is Not About Race

“A lot of books have been written about leadership, but this book stands out because it largely focuses on the role of followers and makes it clear there can be no leaders if there are no followers. Dr. Malangwasira also spends a lot of time clarifying what leadership is not, including false concepts of who is a leader, and he celebrates how leadership is available to people regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or social status. Detailed research and excellent examples make ​Leadership Is Not About Race a standout book in its field.”

Author of ​Narrow Lives and ​The Best Place


“As a native of one of the least developed countries in Africa, Teddie E. Malangwasira was steadfast in his desire to further his education and move to the United States. Now with his Ph.D. in hand, Dr. Malangwasira exemplifies the qualities of a true leader in his willingness to share his knowledge and expertise in a friendly and approachable style.”

Teddie has written a very generous book about the intersection of race and effective leadership. Blending research with his personal story and religious faith, Teddie reminds us that we each have our own gifts, and we are made in the image of our creator who intended all of us to think critically, behave justly, and to act in the best interests of all as a human race...in short: to lead.”

Hi Teddie,
I have just finished your lovely book Leadership Is Not About Race. It’s a wonderful book.
  1. Your use of both Malawian and American examples enhances the credibility of the book.
  2. Use of real life examples like those of Mandela and Gandhi make the reader get interested in the way you are developing the theme.
  3. ​The checklists for being an effective leader and follower are very useful and in fact sum up everything you have written in the 240 pages of the book. These are the core attributes aspiring leaders and followers need to have.
  4. On leadership expectations from society you put a very interesting issue of “Protect your leader” (Page 139). The Malawian way of protecting a leader is ring fencing him from the outside world. He or she only listens to the views of those within the ring and the leader becomes hard of hearing.
  5. The personal application sections at the end of each chapter are very useful for readers to reflect on what they have read.
Bravo Teddie for this wonderful book!
