Having bought all of Brian's books and videos, and having become very successful over the last decades thanks to what he's taught me, I can heartily recommend this latest one as a thoughtful, action-oriented resource for managers, executives, entrepreneurs and anyone else involved in growing and leading a business enterprise.
Thanks again, Brian - this book is a perfect checklist for what leaders should be doing in uncertain times, to lead towards values/vision/mission with clarity, focus, determination and success.
Ken Calhoun, Pres.
Tracy's goal is to make the reader a more effective leader by discussing the proven strategies that consistently get superior results, time and time again. As he addresses each issue, he delivers some straightforward advice, often using military analogies to make his point; after all, survival in the business world depends on having a leader who is focused on the mission at hand, and is able to get the "troops" to execute their tasks, swiftly and effectively. This requires a tremendous amount of effective communication to gain the necessary collaboration to make things happen. Indecisiveness won't cut the mustard.
In the end, the reader will come away with a very clear understanding of the qualities of effective leadership; master these techniques, and you'll more than likely stay on the right course for long-term success, in any endeavor. In the highly competitive world of 21st century business, those who fail to lead effectively, will perish; are you motivated now?
We can use How the Best Leaders Lead as a guide to learning and gaining a greater understanding of the most critical responsibilities of leadership, and to avoid the number one reason for business failure today. The responsibilities of a great leader are timeless, and have been studied throughout the years. Mr. Tracy shows us the reason why businesses fail, who is responsible and how a company can create and keep customers and understand what is standing in our way to success. He gives us the tools to remove the obstacles and push through the barriers, if we are open to really focusing on the tough questions that we need to be asking ourselves and those around us.
The importance of clarity is addressed, as well as keeping things simple and measurable which allows us to achieve goals and chart progress. Do those on your team understand your point of view and your objectives? The importance of communication is highlighted as well as sincerely understanding the motivation of those on your team and why they do what they do.Read more ›
