It would be best used in the classroom or with a small group of current or prospective leaders, but is a little difficult for the person who is used to reading and learning because of numerous learning exercises.
Again, the basic leadership concepts are there, better than most publications. On the other hand it is difficult to use as a reference source because the index is overly populated with names of authors and not to content material.
Book is very expensive!
My two suggestions for improving the book would be to help new and existing leaders assess their competencies so they understand where they should focus their learning. The book is probably overwhelming to most readers when observed in total without understanding I am strong in this area and need to learn more in this area. Secondly, leaders/managers/supervisors must understand that leadership/management is a process that draws on this learning at different times as needed. Until they understand this they cannot apply this material or any of the broad array of books, concepts or strategies for managing on the market. I feel we confuse leaders/managers as much as we help them without helping them understand how and when to apply the vast array of leadership/management learning and concepts. When one understands the process of management and the need for various competencies and skills to address particular situational issues, the the material becomes invaluable.
You may think from the critique above I would not recommend the book, but I do recommend it. Again, it is a great book and worth the money if studied and the concepts applied to the process of leadership and management. A great book for classroom or group learning!
