Publisher's Summary

"Profound lessons made simple by one of the world's greatest teachers." In this chaotic world of teams, matrix management, and horizontal organizations, it's tougher than ever to get things done. How can you lead when you're not the one in charge? How can you be effective when joint action is needed? You need an edge in order to reach solutions and effectively work with people. introducing the technique of lateral leadership, Getting it Done explains how you can: best help a group formulate a clear vision of the results they want; suggest a course of action; learn from past experiences; ask questions effectively; offer ideas that will be heard, and influence the actions of other through your own behavior. The invaluable skills of lateral leadership enable you to achieve the ultimate goal-successful collaboration.

Mediocre book

Content too micro. There are better business books that have higher and deeper principles (such as Principles by Ray Dalio)

Useless and examples-less!

This book is missing so many opportunities to give examples and leaves the listener not really understanding what is he talking about. He should learn how to write from Dale Carnage! It keeps telling (vs describing) you hypothetically what to do. But how? Needs many specific examples of circumstances and situations with every advise that he gives. Otherwise, absolutely useless. I don’t feel I learned anything! In fact, hardly remember any of his advice!
