As someone who has been out of management for a couple of years I picked up this book in hopes to remind myself of basic management principles. Instead not only was I reminded of things I had forgotten I also learned a lot of new material. The way the story is read, the fact that it's an actual story and not just a set of instructions makes listening much easier and learning a lot more fun. would recommend this book to anyone in management.
This book really packs a punch. The concepts make so much sense. Even now when dealing with people, pictures painted in this book pop into my remembrance which helps me deal with the situation.
I highly recommend this book for business and church (and any) leader.
The book uses analogies of a sheep herder that can be easily applied to all management situations and personalities on any team. I must read for any manager/leader.
Hands down the best, most enlightening book I've ever encountered! Not only did I learn the way of the shepherd, it was remarkably well written and entertaining. I was so impressed that I decided to write the first book review I've ever written.
It's always hard to fit teaching like this into a story and this book makes a great effort. It was good and well worth the money and the time. I plan to listen to it again and implement the strategies in my own leadership roles.
Great simple story with many valuable and practical lessons you can apply to your everyday management. specifically I would recommend this to anyone who is taking over a new management role or taking on a new more challenging group of associates. it is a truly great story with many practical tool you can use when trying to manage and influence people.
