HOW AND WHEN TO CALL IT QUITS Saying goodbye to a career is never easy - deciding whether to leave or stay can be one of the hardest decisions a leader will ever make. Part case study, part how-to manual, David Heenan's Leaving on Top: Graceful Exits for Leaders is a rare book that explores this delicate - and often only whispered about - topic. Profiling over twenty top figures in fields as diverse as business, government, sports, and entertainment, Leaving on Top reveals the secrets to excelling in one of life's most formidable challenges: the graceful exit. Software mastermind Bill Gates and TV personality Oprah Winfrey mastered the fine art of quitting at the top of their game, leaving behind a fruitful legacy and gracefully transitioning into the next phase of their lives. Others, including football player Brett Favre and real estate entrepreneur Leona Helmsley, did not recognize that their light was fading and clung on stubbornly, tarnishing otherwise illustrious credentials. Still others, like investor Warren Buffett and comedienne Betty White, are timeless wonders whose sharp wit reveals that keeping at it is the right course for some. The decision to bid adieu, therefore, should always begin with the question: Will I enjoy more - and contribute more - today and tomorrow than yesterday? If not, the timing is right to enter the next stage of life.
