I purchased the e-version of this book. The book highlights the fact that a focus on short term objectives would lead to long term inefficiency. the point is also well made that organizations whose leaders focus on activities usually fail to achieve results at the outcome level i.e. long-term impact. Ryan also makes the link between the leader who focuses on activities and the tendency for such leaders to micro manage. These are just examples of the several issues discussed in 'Debunking the Leadership Myth'. The use of the organizational scenario of 'Acme' to illustrate his points is an excellent feature that helps bring the ideas to life. Its a great read with new perspectives. At least some of them would resonate with all readers. I have highlighted multiple ideas for easy review.

Although this book starts off a little slow, I was really impressed by the content. It made me think about leadership in a different way than other leadership books that I've read. It really challenges the things I "do" as well as the "why" behind them. Along with "Leadership and Self-Deception," this book ranks in my top two.

Hi,

I've started reading this book only a week ago, as a sample.
Once the sample was halfway, I decided to buy. Once at the end of the sample I bought it.
The start is very realistic to me and my experiences in the past. My own leadership style is a little in the direction, but now I'm conscious of my leadership style and aware of what I need to do to get to know more and build upon my own beliefs and fears.

I recommend this book for everyone who is starting a leadership role, together with Emotional Intelligence you can go a long way. Especially in an Enterprise environment.

Wow! What a totally boring book. Trouble sleeping? This might do the trick. Think of your most boring teacher giving you a lecture. That is the gist of this. Boring! 3 stars.

There are MANY leadership books out there and many are good...but few force you to truly think about leadership in a new way and challenge your style and thoughts on it like The Story of Conscious Leadership does. The book has a very good flow to it with exercises which allow you to enter your own experiences into the context of the chapters. The bottom line is this is one of the few books that I can honestly say will help me become a more effective leader.

I have been to many leadership courses and workshops, and they all seem to say the same thing. Conscious Leadership made me ask myself some hard questions about how I am leading my team, and whether or not I am doing enough. And am I acting in a conscious way to lead. I think this book really breaks through the clutter of leadership books, and rises to the top. I highly recommend it.
