By D. Kanigan VINE VOICE on May 8, 2010

The book jacket describes the book providing "everything you need to fulfill your leadership potential and become the leader you want to be - and your team needs you to be." Bit of a stretch given the book is 56 pages long and can be read in 30 minutes. That being said, Author does capture the essence of leadership in his 12 steps.

"Step 11: Coaching Your Boss" ('Give honest feedback from peers...be straight and tell the boss how he is doing...do not sugarcoat...if boss is letting deadlines slip, tell him') needed additional context - you better have a very good relationship with your boss and be speaking to someone who is open in receiving feedback or you'll be "coaching" yourself out of a job. That being said, the book is well written - easy reading - and supported by examples. 12 Steps to Power Presence is a high level primer best suited for new leaders or managers - and it never hurts to revisit the fundamentals especially if you've been in the game for a while.

The 12 steps are:

1) What is leadership presence?
2) Character counts.
3) Five Attributes of Authority
4) Leveraging Power
5) Be Decision
6) Be Straight with People
7) Appearance Does Matter
8) Instill Pride of Purpose
9) To Lead is to Assert
10)Projecting Hope and Optimism
11)Coaching Your Boss
12)Promote Yourself

Two of my favorite passages:

"Leadership is more than style, more than communications. It is the projection of the leader's authentic self. That authenticity is made up of a person's beliefs and convictions and reinforced by behavior. That is, it's not `talking the talk' that matters, it's `walking the walk' that makes a difference."

"All of us want to belong to something greater than ourselves, and inspiration is essential. Authority coupled with a sense of aspiration bonds people to the leader."

John baldoni has published really useful materials, so I went and purchased this book. Actually calling it a book is inacurrate, it is a booklet. Very thin, with 12 steps that are very basic, common sensical, and are covered at such a high level that I did not find any value in the book.

Not that the 12 principles are wrong. I just think there is not enough detail for a beginner and there is not enough meat for someone with experience. Actually I stopped reading after 2/3rd of the booklet.

Unless you need something very academic and basic, I suggest you look elsewhere.
