Format: Paperback
The best business books are brief, clear and pertinent. Monday Morning Leadership fits all of those requirements.

You can read the whole book in a few minutes . . . and think about and apply what you learned for a lifetime.

The format is around a man who's struggling as a manager. His operation isn't performing well. His boss isn't happy. He's not happy. He doesn't have time to be with his family or to do what he likes to do. It looks like his career has peaked . . . and his job may be in jeopardy. What to do?

If that sounds familiar, almost everyone has had that experience who has taken on a management role.

Jeff decides to do something about it. He contacts an old family friend, Tony Pierce, who has had a very successful business career. Tony has agreed to meet with Jeff for eight weeks on Monday mornings.

In their eight sessions, Jeff learns the following lessons:

1. He has to accept total responsibility for results without excuses and to think like a leader rather than a manager or follower.

2. Be sure everyone knows what the main thing is that they have to accomplish and keep their faith in you as a leader.

3. Get closer to your people and help your top performers improve.

4. Act with integrity and prepare for how to handle problems before they occur.

5. Improve the team you have by only hiring high performers.

6. Manage your time carefully by looking for ways to save minutes wherever you can and by being more effective at whatever you do.

7. Encourage, recognize and respect your people.

8. Advance your learning by reading, being open to trying new things, listening, helping others, setting goals and always being professional and positive.

34 of 35 people found the following review helpful By Scot N. Jones on July 3, 2003
Format: Paperback
I have read (I daresay) hundreds of books on management, the goods, the bads, and even the uglies! MONDAY MORNING LEADERSHIP is right up there on the top of my list now - for a couple reasons.
1. Its short. Let's face it: most of us barely have the time to do what's expected of us, much less pick up a book on management. TAKE THE TIME TO READ IT - I am betting that the time it takes to read this book (about one hour) will make a tangible difference in how you do business.
2. There's no fluff. It's just the meat, nothing but the meat. Sure, there are a few illustrations scattered about but only where a story might strengthen the message. I appreciate authors who appreciate that I have better things to do (namely supervising employees) than sit and read!
3. Finally, if any book comes close to teaching a manager "everything they need to know in one sitting", this does it. As a matter of fact, I teach management workshops for new managers, and have decided that MONDAY MORNING LEADERSHIP will likely become required reading.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Doug Fleener on June 14, 2003
Format: Paperback
One could almost say this book is "Tuesday's With Morrie" meets "Leadership and the One Minute Manager". Monday Morning Leadership is David Cottrell's story of his struggles at work and the lesson's he receives from his mentor, Tony. Tony is a very successful and wise former turnaround specialist who is now an author and business coach. David spends eight Monday mornings with Tony learning easy to apply leadership theories. One of my favorites is the difference between drivers and passengers in the car. Most of all, I appreciated that Tony only ask of one thing for David to be his mentor, that he too passed these lessons on. And with this recommendation, I too shall pass it on.

Format: Paperback
I generally avoid these "allegory" type books, feeling that they are written for beginners rather than for those who have read volumes of self-help jargon. This book kicks butt. The story part doesn't take the weird twists characteristic of this type of book. The advise is easy to understand and instantly usable.

I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is clear, crisp and hits the critical success factors for effective managers and leaders. The author uses powerful anecdotes to get his message across. This short book can be read inside of a few hours and should be on the required reading list for all new managers (and those needing a refresher). The chapter titles and key messages can be found below:

1) Drivers and Passengers (accept total responsibility for results w/o excuses; be a leader rather than a follower)

2) Keep the Main Thing The Main Thing (Focus on few critical needs and be certain everyone knows them)

3) Escape From Management Land (Get and stay close to your top people and help your best improve)

4) The "Do Right Rule" (Act with integrity)

5) Hire tough (Only hire and retain top performers)

6) Do Less or Work Faster (Manage time carefully by being more efficient at what you do)

7) Buckets and Dippers (Respect, recognize and cheer on your people)

8) Enter the Learning Zone (Continuous learning through reading, listening, trying new approaches, helping others)

Format: Paperback
This book was required reading for a leadership class I took. It has a number of good pearls, and I am glad I read it. However, the presentation is horrible. It is written as if it is the transcription of two people having a series of conversations over coffee. The dialog between the two people seems contrived and repetitive, even belittling at times. In the end, I could have gotten just as much out of the book if it had been condensed to a two-page list of bulleted items.
