5.0 out of 5 stars Often couches its ideals and techniques in dialogues January 17, 2004
Format:Hardcover
The collaborative work of Steve and Jill Morris, Leadership Simple: Leading People To Lead Themselves is a guidebook to the practice of managing by teaching people to lead themselves. Models of human thought and action; processes to change one's own behavior in order to better achieve one's goals; sample questions for accurately evaluating one's choices, and a great deal more fill the pages of this highly readable guide, which often couches its ideals and techniques in dialogues specifically intended to assimilate absorption. Leadership Simple is a welcome addition to any personal or professional business management reading list or reference collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read October 6, 2003
Format:Hardcover
This book on Lead Management is a real page-turner. It provides usable basic information to put this simple system of leadership to work with others and yourself. It is a fast read. The process at first seems so obvious and simple but when I started using the model deliberately it was life changing. I have read few books that have impacted my life with such immediacy. The diagrams make it very easy to understand and picture in your mind. The questions provided in the system tie directly to the diagrams. Few of the concepts are new but they have never been presented with such clarity in a complete system of thinking and leadership. Actually, I cannot think of another book that presents leadership in a systematic way. I recommend this book for anyone. You donft have to be a leader or a manager to gain a lot from reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balance of Relationships and Productivity July 8, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Leadership Simple by Jill and Steve Morris is a wonderful book for business consultants who are often brought in to solve employee conflict, manage resistance in employees, mediate a manager/worker conflict or just generally work on team building. Leadership Simple is very much in line with the new paradigm made popular by Daniel Pink with his book, Drive--the new paradigm of internal motivation.

Leadership Simple discusses the five basic needs that motivate all of us. Then they present their model called, "The Triangle of Choice." This model shows us that when we aren't getting what we want, we basically have three options available to us. We can change what we want, we can change our behavior, or we can change our perception. This is a very powerful notion because most people when they aren't getting what they want expend a lot of nonproductive time and energy trying to change people and situations that cannot be changed or simply complain about the situation, rather than placing their focus on what they can--their desires, their behavior and/or their perception. Brilliant!

The other piece I really appreciate about the Morris' model is the way they demonstrate holding people accountable for their agreements. When a company attempts to make the switch from a dictatorial model to a more democratic one, they usually make the mistake of thinking they can no longer hold people accountable for their commitments. Being a good manager means effectively maintaining the proper balance between supporting one's workers by providing them opportunities to get their needs met at work and constantly improving the quality of the goods and/or services produced. The Morris' demonstrate through case studies how to hold workers accountable while still maintaining a positive relationship. I highly recommend this book for managers and consultants. Thank you Jill and Steve!
