A well written, easy read that helps the average person to get things done.

In that sense, I will have taken on Russell's role of becoming a Titleless Leader and her book would have been worth the read.
Jim Estill
Nan Russell presents the concepts in a very clear, concise, and convincing way.

I think we all know that we need to lead by example, not throw blame and accept responsibilities for our actions. Ms. Russell shares her thoughts on how we can be the best employee,and team leader we can be. She proves that it is totally up to each individual to take a stand on what they feel is the right thing to do to make a company grow and to be a desirable place to work. How to be inspirational to your co-workers.

We spend an enormous amount of time at work, why not make it the best possible place to be? Her winning philosophies are to be admired! Great book, thank you!

Coming from a software development background with self-organizing teams; this book is spot-on. Innovative businesses seek this type of leadership. Command and control mentality businesses oppose these leaders. When the rubber meets the road, titles are useless. Everyone has the capability to contribute to the business goals and lead the team towards them. Every scrum-master should add this book to their collection.

Well written, useful suggestions for anyone who wants to build a team and get things done in their sphere of influence. My only issue - if I had a do-over, would buy this as a hard-copy book as there are so many passages that I want to reference and quote.

I think this book is excellent for workplace advice. I have already given it out as a gift. I intend to give to other individuals that strive to excel in their careers. The advice is simple, elegant, and profound. After 35+ years in the workplace, I find the book spot-on.
