Publisher's Summary

How can you be both the boss everyone wants to work for, and the high achiever every CEO wants to hire - all without drama, stress, or endless hours in the office? Great Leaders Have No Rules shows how a contrarian approach can be a better, faster, and easier way to succeed as a leader.

Kruse shows with real-world case studies and quantitative research that you need to: Close your open door policy, play favorites, turn off your smartphone, show weakness, crowd your calendar and more.

Not Terrible, Not Groundbreaking

Pretty average in the world of leadership books. The principles weren't groundbreaking revelations, but they weren't terrible advice. A couple were common sense.

Another great book by Kevin

I loved this book for many reasons, but the biggest being the fact that Kevin shares some of his most vulnerable moments in his career. Definitely worth a listen.

Worth the read no question....

This was a great book. These days when there are more rules and feelings based weaknesses all around us now holding society back. The book theme fits well for someone strong enough to leave the common heard.

Great book

I’d never heard of Kevin Kruse before reading this book. I’ve spent most of my life in leadership roles (military and civilian). This author is so spot on, he may have just become one of my favorite leadership authors.

Excellent Guide for Leaders

This book is not providing information that is revolutionary in the field of leadership. It does provide some proven principles that are supported by science and in-depth studies. If you listen to the LeadX Podcast you already know the author and how well he presents information.

I have many years of leadership experience but found sections of this book that will prove very useful to me. I am excited to move away from a To Do List and start using my Calendar to manage my days.

Nice audiobook

A good audiobook for new or aspiring managers. Great structure with a useful chapter summarizing everything. I can’t say it was the greatest book. I also don’t agree with some of the radical ideas about it, e.g. the one about revealing salaries, which sounds great when everything else is sorted out in your company, so, don’t know how realistic that can be. Still worth a listen.
