I don't believe the information in this book is bad or worthless, but I do think it's mostly common sense principles. If you think of how to be a leader and you have a variety of thoughts that come to mind, they're probably all in this book. Nothing really new or groundbreaking. I wouldn't recommend.
I didn't expect this audio book to be "spot on" about leadership. I've applied the very principles mentioned and everything from being good to great! Now I have my leaders coming to me for insight, my team is more engaged in growing themselves and the company, and I was able to develop an influence with other business groups and COIs in the community. This is worthwhile!
This is an amazing book on how to positively influence your superiors, your peers and your subordinates!
From the first chapter, I could identify with who he was talking about in my own company. He helped me better understand "leading from any chair" .... I didn't wanna like this book - but I did.
I have no idea. I hate leadership books.
Eh. I got no words. I didn't care that much. It was an educational training book.
yes, if he is aim is to become a team leader or middle manager and like to rub shoulders with superiors.
I will be interesting to have a follow up at exec. level.
Well organized lesson on personal abillity/responsibility when working in any type of organization. More a value system with tools than a functional instruction.
Yes. It is packed with useful information that helps people become leaders. It is easy to understand and easy to follow.
The chapter on learning how to lead across to your peers was the most useful. So often we think that leading is giving orders to others. This chapter was very insightful into how to influence your peers and thus lead them without it feeling that way.
If you are looking for a book on what it takes to become a leader, this is it!
This book really makes you think! It makes you consider your place in the working world and how much little things can help to make big changes.
This book is a must read for anyone who wants to improve their impact in the work place. Whether you are a supervisor, subordinate or co-worker and no matter where you are on your career ladder you should invest time in this book.
