Format: Hardcover
This book is 150 pages dedicated to some very simple principals. Create open communication, follow through, and treat others as you want to be treated. Do we need 150 pages of cutesy story to get that message across? I don't think so and do not see the value proposition in this book. If you want a good book on getting things done, buy Execution by Bossidy. If you want to learn leadership and communication principals, read anything by Maxwell (I would recommend reading several). Unless you are targeting someone just entering leadership with no skills, I can't see them getting much from this book.

"Walk the Talk," did offer some insightful advice on making sure that we walk the talk we already know. Yes, the rules and values offered in this story are ones most of us already know, but through the story we come to understand that it is not enough to tell people what rules and values you follow and/or believe but that you must set an example by making sure you follow them. Most people are easy to see the mistakes in others without being accountable for themselves, which is something we should all be doing. Overall, while "Walk the Talk," may not offer too many new ideas, it is a fairly good and fast read, that I would recommend.

Format: Paperback
Leaders earn the right to expect others to do things by doing those things themselves. This book is for companies and industries which have a lot of employees. It was used for workshops to provide "back to basics" foundation for culture change processes. Workers are drilled and hyped up with promised promotions if they walk the talk (do as they're told). When you break a promise, more than the promise gets broken. You can no longer trust those who let you down. When you make a promise, you have to deliver. Others judge us by our actions; they see what we do. They don't always hear what we say, but what they want to hear which is not conistent or accurate; seeing is believing.

The "real world" is deceiving. There are smooth talkers in all fields who tell us one thing and do the opposite, thinking that by the time you discover the falseness of what they claimed, you find you've been rooked big time and (like me) lost a lot of money in the process. Enterprise Rental Cars need to practice honesty. The values and truth we expect don't exist for such deceitfulness and untrustworthy businesses.

This book is meant for those in the workplace who insist on following theri company's policy tot he "T." It is critical that managers ensure their departments are run appropriately to the company's image, true or false. Job descriptions identify the specific functions each employee must perform, to the best of his ability. Vision without action is meaningless. If the worker is not trained adequately, values mean nothing. It is rare now to find a friendly, helpful "associate" to look for the product you need as it is not in their department, and they cannot cope. No one cares whether you buy there or leave to find what you need at another store.

We manage a good sized well established non-profit in New York City. Walk the Talk was a fantastic quick read with many great concepts and ideas we were able to put into practice and see results immediately. I recommend it.
