Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Highly recommend for leaders and managers at all levels. I particularly recommend this book to those who find themselves in leadership or management positions for the first time.
All the "leadership" books, business school classes, and seminars I've read or attended seem to be aimed at making you the next best General or Fortune 500 CEO. Well, most of us are never going to rise to that level no matter how hard we diligently work. And why I found these books and classes frustrating. There is a great void of "leadership literature" accessible to the newly minted or mid-level leader. This book goes a long way to filling that void. This is not to say that the General or CEO can't learn from this book also - and they should. Scureman takes fundamental leadership principles and presents them in an understandable and relatable manner - without the gobbledygook. That is refreshing. People are not born leaders. Rather, they are developed. Let your development start (or continue) here. Scureman's principles are timeless and work from coaching the kids' church soccer team to the boardroom.
An excellent book - filled with stories that bring meaning and context to a treasure trove of leadership and management insights! I have purchased 50 books for my directors and everyone that reports to them at our organization!
