This book lives upto it's reviews. Amazing insights, bottom line Persue your passion with conviction and determination, be humble and compassionate to others 🙏🏼.
Some good ideas, but a bit painful to listen. I found myself speeding up the audio to get through is quicker, especially near the end. A summery of the key points in a 1 hour version would have been a better use of time for me.
2 take aways for me:
1) humble leadership creates more sustainable businesses.
2) having the right people on the bus and the right people in the right seats is critical. But how?
Author always refers to figures and tables. Would be good to have it as addendum
I really liked the content and particularly the scientific method behind it. I didn't like the performance. Jim hammers some things incessantly to the point where I found myself turning down the volume. This isn't throughout the book, only periodically, but it was way too much. But if you suffer through that you'll get a lot out of this book.
l really appreciate how he reinforced the thing I struggle with the most is how to stay on a path were I see greatness can be achieved long term and not always bend to the need for instance results that are flashy but not sustainable
Practical and useful leadership themes for diverse audiences. Great information for non-business types, showing the importance of the individual's character, leadership through humility, getting the right people together and other well thought leadership topics.
I can appreciate the hundreds of research hours that went into this book, but Collins' bombastic and irritating writing and narration makes this book a chore to get through. Every now and then, there's a key idea that makes the sound of Collins' voice worth it.
Unsouthern belle :)
Based on the cover & preview, I was excited to purchase. Highly disappointed. I do not recommend. There is no guide or suggested development plan for those interested in implementing good to great. Content primarily discusses all the companies that were good and how some became great and some didn't. Lame.
