Jeb Blount is absolutely right!,
This review is from: People Follow You: The Real Secret to What Matters Most in Leadership (Hardcover)
In this excellent book, Jeb Blount successfully (and appealingly) makes the case that there's a high cost to poor leadership, and then offers five critical points of leverage for providing a far-too- uncommon but all too necessary level of leadership if the modern organization has any hopes of surviving the roller coaster ride of change.
He offers a plethora of actionable advice on a wide range of interpersonal topics: positioning employees for their best chance at success; how to build enough loyalty into employee relationships to keep top performers loyal; and how to help people grow and thrive, individually and together.
My favorite moment comes early on, when he makes a key distinction between leadership, management and coaching. Honestly, that's the clearest set of distinctions I've ever read on the matter!
I'm keeping my review short, so you can use this time to read the book! Two thumbs up, highly recommend. [...]
