Yes...This book is a encyclopedia of the self help literature from the past centuries. The author has summarized the main teachings about the topic into seven basic tenats. The stress is on self improvement and principle change - supported by not just vague or ambigous, open to interpretation ways to improve one self, he teaches specific examples in daily life, touch points in our work/life where we can start making changes and see expected results. The best part of the book - this does not teach you to be pretentious, or one of the 'How to manage your perception' prescriptions, it states that to achieve harmony and as a result being effective, one needs to make fundamental changes to one's guiding principles and the rest follows. The author cites great examples and suggestions.
The discussion on going from perosnal level of effectiveness to greatness!
The expressions of speech, first hand knowledge from the master and above all a great well paced peep into a great way to organise one's self and beyond.

One thing missing was if there was some complementing material with the audio file, especially where they base the discussion on graphs and diagrams, it is better to have the visuals as well..Maybe in future, for books where they talk of conceptual models to explain something, the audio file could be accompanied with perhaps those few pages from the book, so user doesnt miss out on anything at all.
Yes - the author in this book, has summarized his vast experience corporate world, into basic, useable and implementable nuggets on how to lead without counting resource shortage or even lack of authority...
The B-B-N model on leading an organization and galvanising energy of more than just self.
He reads the book with a lot of expressions, kind of getting used to his style! Like it...
It took me a few sessions, mostly to be able to absorb the material and not just listen to it. Found it very well written and with examples supporting a viewpoint and practical suggetions with a list of things to look for, at some instances, to be valuable. Overall an inspiring book which makes the reader aware of pitfalls at various leadership levels.
