Publisher's Summary

What is the secret to lasting as a leader? In the words of Ken Blanchard and Mark Miller, "Our capacity to grow determines our capacity to lead.” Leadership must be a living process, and life means growth.

In Great Leaders Grow, a woman named Debbie Brewster becomes a mentor to a young man named Blake, as he embarks on his own career. Together, they explore four ways that leaders must keep growing, both on the job and off. Within their story are valuable lessons for anyone who desires both professional success and personal fulfillment.

    "Good story but not for a single performer."

    The story itself was very inspirational but it sounded awkward with only one male reader.

    Story
    "Great Mentor"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Great Leaders Grow to be better than the print version?

    yes I have a long commute. I have heard this 3 times now. I doubt I would reread it three times.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Great Leaders Grow?

    The mentor Debbie shows great compassion and wisdom in how she walks him through learning leadership.


    What does Chris Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I don't know how he does all those voices but I really enjoyed the way he read this.
    It is making a difference for me at work.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    both

    "encouraging"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book has many parts to it, with different speakers. It is not a book to listen to all in one sitting. I found that I needed time to absorb what each speaker discussed.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book, I felt each speaker had so much to present that can be used in my life, at work or daily living. I am glad that I purchased this.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book is a story narrarated by someone covering both the male and female voices and it is just disturbing. I listen to a LOT of audiobooks by the author, but this one was not the caliber of prior works.

    I enjoy books that are more technical and bullet pointed. I really did not gain anything from listening to this book. I kept waiting for the material to start and it kept going on and on with this story and the awkward voices.
