Good ideas in the book but (and it's a big one) the story DOES NOT help. The way the story is presented is such a cheesy and contrived way of telling a leadership fable it just makes me cringe - I mean come on - Argentinean maid giving leadership advice about how to lead organizations???? I don't think so... I don't know but I think it's time to rewrite the book Robin...
This is my first review I ever write, because I think it is so awful it hurt me listening. An endless thread of common place thoughts, not one original idea, the story feels lifted from Dan Millman's Peaceful Warrior and everything is glued together with empty phrases. It must be hard to come up with something new in the self help genre, Seth Godin's last book I read before was also very disappointing.
Robin Sharma has always been great at getting his points across in story form and I think it does a great job of delivering the message as it doesn't ever seem in your face.
I will definitely go back and re listen to a few key points to make sure I jot them down on paper.
If you are looking for a practical philosophy on leadership, look no further. This book ingeniously lays out some actionable steps in a fun and entertaining story.
I LOVED the principals covered here! If you are used to personal development books, you may find the format of this very difficult as its told as a story. The performer is required to use several voices, which can be irritating and times...well worth it for the principles though!
Leadership in the service of others, to inspire innovative thoughts & actions, to 'connect the dots' & create our future, this is my crusade
The story used to deliver the books powerful message is inspiring and entertaining. I saw myself in each of the characters. If you have a person you know that is struggling to see their true value as both a human and productive member of sociality this book is a must read. If you would like to be a better coach and leader this book is for you.
I really liked the story and all the lessons taught from each of the four characters and story tellers. I think it has a very important message that we all need to be leaders in our own spear of influence and not worry about a title.
I felt connected to this book and story. A lot of what is said here is not new but stated in a clever story. I could feel the energy or chi or mana stir deep within me as I listened. This past week at work I have felt more energized than I have in a while. I do feel the need and urge to share Robin's message with my friends, family and coworkers. I hope that I can motivate at least 1 person at work and hopefully my wife and kids too. Thank you. I hope to live my life without regrets....my LWT journey begins now!
Depends, I can say I don't recommend it for serious readers. It's all about motivating, no serious guidance or detailing. More like a punch of stories than to demonstrate enthusiastic people & their energy. So, it depends what you want from it.
not as expected, but at least learned something.
Not really, it was recommended by my boss, so I gave a thorough chance, but seems like it's one time energy charging.
This book is amazing. Robin Sharma really goes deep into the ways in which one can really lead their field and ultimately live a more meaningful life. I've heard other books of his, so I did find some of the things quite repetitive, but having said that this explains his Leadership morals in depth and in much more detail than any other books he has written.
If you're into personal development and are looking for motivational and inspirational reads then this is a must. This book will definitely help you in many ways, it certainly had helped me and changed my view on alot of things.
"Not worth listening to"
I like the work of Robin Sharma but was very disappointed with 'The Leader Who Had No Title'. I only managed to listen for an hour before switching it off. I feel the author picked the message he wished to deliver and then fabricated a very flimsy, evangelistic fable around it which left me feeling patronized. Not for me!.
