Imagine taking everything Ken Blanchard has ever written that was worth reading and put it in one book. That's what you have here. This is a gold mine. Regardless of who you lead (yourself, your family, your department, your company, your non-profit organization, your HOA, etc) this is the book for you!

There is tons of good information in this book, however I am baffled at the motives of the author(s) constantly referring/referencing/footnoting their own previously written books. In almost every chapter he refers to himself and co-authors in the third person ("As Ken Blanchard writes in ___ book".) It is very distracting to me and I can't determine if it is a shameless plug to sell you his other works or if it is some attempt at lending credibility to his point. If he wrote the previous book as an original idea, then he has no need to reference or quote himself. He makes excellent, thought-provoking points, but as Cynthia R. states in her book review, "Good info, too many plugs for his other books." (see how annoying that is)

I also had no problems downloading the free version of the entire book on the kindle app for my droid phone. This is a great reference for training and leadership--everything from leading yourself, teams, companies, and learning how to coach others, as well as yourself. The authors of the Blanchard companies cover it all here!

Blanchard's book is an incredibly well thought out resource. I have not only put key concepts in practice as the operations manager of our company, but I am now giving it to other key employees to read as a model for them to glean from. Far from pie in the sky, I found the concepts practical, useable, an actionable. While Blanchard's concepts are not the only one's we use, they are a basis for much of the change we've implemented. They have also helped me outside of business in the way I handle people and interact on a personal level.

I'm not sure what earlier reviewers were experiencing, but I was able to download the complete book. I read the original first edition of Leading At A Higher Level when it originally came out and I am really glad to be able to access the second edition as a Kindle download. Lots of great insight in here--especially appreciate the section on building trust through sharing your leadership point of view. Also enjoyed learning about the role that leadership plays in creating employee passion and customer devotion.

This book spans the range from managing oneself through to leading a large organization, focusing on leadership and 'soft skills'. The key recommendation is that the development stage of the person / team / organization must be assessed and will determine the appropriate style of leadership to deploy. The authors refer to this system as Situational Leadership II.

Both starting and experiences managers and team leaders will find much valuable advice here. Having read the book cover to cover, I believe that the sections on leading organization-wide change can be skimmed by many readers, but all should read the advice on developing an individual leadership style. Overall, a great book to have in any leader's personal library and one I wish I had read many years ago at the start of my career.
