Review

This terrific book offers clear and precise options that a leader can choose in order to successfully transform their organization to meet the challenges of these uncertain times. . .the result is a powerful read. ----Stephen M. R. Covey, author of The New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller, The Speed of Trust

I love this book! I am a firm believer in a situational approach to leadership. You not only need to use different strokes for different folks, but also f or different situations. Ford and Tucker do a superb job of the latter scenario. ----Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager and Leading at a Higher Level

The authors do an excellent job of describing the three ways to lead: tactical, strategic and transformational. While I often do not enjoy reading leadership books, I found this one to be both thought provoking and practical. If you are a leader who is stuck in moving your team forward, I recommend this book.

This is an engaging read that helps you get some handles on what Ken Blanchard calls "situational leadership." The three types of leadership are defined and described well (Tactical, Strategic and Transformational). It is a bit weak at helping you know when and how to employ a type of leadership that you are not naturally "wired" to operate in. Over all it is a beneficial read for people who work with team leadership.

Having read a couple of Kevin Ford's books this one was by far the best. I thoroughly enjoyed the concrete examples and people chosen to illustrate the points. The book is an easy read, but will challenge your every thought on leadership. I'm glad to have it on my shelf.

As the authors say, “If you’re not making any progress in solving the problem you’re facing, you are probably trying to solve the wrong problem. The art of leadership is in knowing what sort of problem you are facing and what leadership option is required to tackle it. We have identified three primary types of leadership challenges: Tactical, Strategic, and Transformational”. The authors help leaders understand what these kinds of challenges are and how to deal with them. When you start identifying what kinds of problems you face and begin solving problems with the appropriate instruments you set yourself up to accomplish what God has called you to do. tomlaw.org/booksummaries

I am an Office Administrator in the largest office and corporate headquarters of a huge business consisting of 21 offices. I have little time for reading but I found this book to be very beneficial to me in my work and in managing what little is left of my life outside of work. I would recommend it for anyone who has a very demanding job that involves a lot of leadership skills and people skills. Leave work a little early, take a cocktail, a plate of cheese and apples with some fancy crackers and your dog, to the patio and sit down with a paper book full of pages for a change and you might be surprised what you'll learn in a short amount of time about what you're doing right and not just what you're doing wrong!
