I’m a HUGE fan of Brent Gleeson and TakingPoint

TakingPoint is EXTREMELY effective at discussing the principles of leading through change in business. Brent's life experiences in business and as a US Navy SEAL are woven together in such an AMAZING way in this book!!
I’m a big believer in taking notes when I read. There is SO MUCH valuable information in this book it's hard to get it all down in one pass. Fortunately, there is a repeat button on Audible!
If you have not already read TakingPoint I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!! Even if you have, it's probably a good idea to read it again! I'm a HUGE fan!!

An excellent book with essential talking points

I enjoyed this read so much that I’m running through it a second time. Brent does an excellent job outlining intuitive concepts in an effort to improve oneself in various environments. Whether in life on a personal level or in business as a leader, this book provides ample instruction and guidance.
BravoZulu to Brent G. and thank you for creating this book.
