Are you what Everyone Deserves?
If you are like me, you've read many books on leadership and management. This is my latest listen and I learned and was reminded a lot.
That doesn't mean the principles covered are all new. They are not. Some may be new and become a "light bulb moment" for you. But they are all presented in the authors' own voice and includes their experiences you can only get here. Often, hearing an idea or principle described in a different voice and experience is what I need to really internalize it. That happened for me many times inside this book.
Since I do work from home I appreciated the numerous references to situations for those of us who do.
One of the highlights that stood out to me was the emphasis on listening, an often missing link in all human interactions.
I enjoyed it, learned from it, plan to read the physical copy I have in front of me and believe you will too.

Rich in real life situations , tips to face them and moving ahead. I recommend to young and new leaders because it allows you to learn from the experience of others, armed with knowledge and tools to cope issues that sooner or later you are going to live. Clear and emphatic in the importance of prioritize, how to control your time, and how to get balance in life.

Useful for real life team leader challenges
I have really enjoyed listening this book.
I listened this book because I have recently become a leader of a team that was created from 2 teams: my former team and another team. This is very challenging time and team leader role. The other team used to have a leader that now reports to me. Most of the other team members are seniors. I think that this setup has not been something they had not wished for. What is more their former work had been stopped and they need to work on something completely different, yet they are able to use their skills for the new assignments. My former team already knows me and we have been kind in synch. The new setup has slightly changed the chemistry in the team. The team members from the other team are very challenging and I needed some new ideas that would help me to make the right decisions. I found a lot of helpful material in this book. Always imagined if the situation the authors described somehow fit into my new environment. Although it did not answer all my questions, it gave me some ideas what I can improve the way I lead my team.
I also liked that the authors have emphasise on balance work and personal life. That is very important because sometimes we are so busy with the work and try to achieve perfection that we forget that such way may really impact how we behave.
The authors often talked about listening that goes two ways, not only by leader to his team but the team members to his leader.
I also liked the attached material PDF, which can be used later in a real life situation.
I am starting practicing monthly one-to-one meeting with my team members. I have again checked materials about the leading questions that a team leader can use a guideline during the meeting.
I will definitely go back to re-listen and review again some of the materials.
I recommend this book to anybody who looks for some answers during the hard time of challenges they may face with the team. Usually the challenges come when some routine is broken, when changes are implemented by organisation or when a new team is forming.
