This is a great book with great first-hand accounts, it's an easy and pleasurable read.
The book is a great read and highly informative. A lot of it seems like common sense, but the author really just relays personal experience and things learned along the way. There have been a few statements that have really stuck with me on the job and struck a personal level.
As a college student studying Administration of Justice I truly appreciate this writing style approach of teaching through the eyes of a learned experience. Wynn not only provides a framework for Leadership, he describes the importance of followership and touches on several other aspects of leadership including personal development, vision, risk, conflict, change and creative thinking. Wynn describes the key quality to being a leader as one who does the right thing because it's the right thing to do and provides common qualities that a true leader must possess to be an effective leader and respected as such. Qualities of a leader as presented range from being competent, confident, ethical, communicative, and even caring, emphasizing the importance of managing from the heart and showing compassion for your troops.
The most beneficial technique learned through this reading is described as the "good bag/bad bag" technique. Wynn shares a learned technique of taking both good and bad qualities learned through personal experiences, literature, seminars, etc. and dumping them into a "good bag" or a "bad bag." This idea essentially provides a tool for leaders to use to avoid being overwhelmed with thousands of leadership techniques being described as the "ticket" to good leadership.Read more ›
