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.
Super great read! Recommend to everyone. lots of great characters and morals. like a children's tale for adults, as the protagonist is on a journey to learn life lessons and teach them to others. Highly recommend!
I think this book has a lot of good messages everyone needs to hear, but it was delivered in a way that was so unbelievably corny, it was laughable. I could have done without the teachers calling the guy "Blake the Great" as if he was 8 years old. Also the cheesy music between the chapters was like being on hold for some huge company in the late 80s, maybe early 90s and completely unnecessary. The way the main character just bought into the philosophy without any convincing was unbelievable. This story lacked some substance, but I kept listening because I knew I needed to hear it. Like I said earlier, this book is full of messages everyone needs to hear, but be sure to have a sense of humor while listening to make it less painful.
This publication is interesting and I will do my best to following the suggestions offered in order to enhance my leadership skills. As stated , in the publication is challenging, but definitely achievable. I am confident it will work for me and hopefully for others with whom I come in contact. Let's go!
Let me start by saying that I wish I had found this book 20 years or more ago!
This is the type of book that will bring the change in your life that you are really seeking. Authentic change, one that represents who you are and what your values are. Not only does it provide great insight, with amazing stories, but it also provides the tools that you want and need to bring your life to the next chapter or the next level.
I recommend this book to anyone at any stage in life from a young adult to someone approaching midlife or going through it or even someone in their senior years.
Everyone has so much to get a headache comes down to being inspired by the right people, or the right book, or just the right timing.
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.
the concept of a leader without a title is an amazing one. yet I believe that the story was very lame. it could have been good for teenagers on less.
I absolutely loved listening to this book! It had me in tears at the end as Robin Sharma really crafted together a well written story and set of characters. All of us are leaders, regardless of what "titles" we have at work or in our personal lives♡. This book had me hooked from the beginning. It wasn't just another book of someone "talking" at me to make changes in my life, rather the inspiration was drawn from the story and interaction of the characters who laid out the principles in the book. Do yourself a huge favor and read or listen to this book. It's well worth it!
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.
"Too focus on success as in having a great car, etc"
Insightful and awareness awaking, great tools inside. But also far too (north)American dream focused, not questioning at all the ethics of the military nor those of big companies in big cities.
i loved this book and enjoyed its audio copy of it.. very inspirational... and really helpful as it helps showing you that no matter what is the life that you are living you can be happy
"Robin Sharma is a life-changing legend! FACT!"
If you are looking for inspiration and help in getting yourself out of a 'rut', I recommend reading or listening to any of Robin Sharma's books. Robin has honestly changed my life!
Do yourself a favour and invest in YOU - you'll be glad you did, and so will the people around you. Thank you Robin! Forever grateful xx
"#very inspiring lessons and story's"
This is a must read for any person in life,it will catch everybody's imagination and especially how much you can achieve in life by becoming a positive influence on yourself and others.
"A bit cheesy but good sentiments"
Enjoyable, thought-provoking, inspiring
This is an inspiring book that makes trys to empower you, You don't need a title or position of authority to get things done and to inspire others. It inspires you to be the best you that you can be - well worth a read, but take it in a light hearted spirit.
"Good but not my favourite"
I was going to give this 3 stars but the last section and the closing words from Robin upped it by one!
It's based on principles for improving life, mindset and those around you through a story of characters.
I personally prefer The Go Giver by Bob Burg but this is still worth listening to if you're looking to improve or others you're around
Great story, performance and the idea. Really inspired me as I listen to it every morning on my way to work.
Very useful and truly smart phrases there that really make sense and are not cheesy.
The way the author presents this strategy is just phenomenal!
I'm back to listening to it one more time now! with pleasure and gratitude.
"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!.
