Caveats: Blake didn't face as many challenges and setbacks as I think would've been realistic, so I would've liked to see him face more adversity (although I believe this choice was intentional by the authors in order to promote positivity and optimism, I think this addition would encourage more people to develop resiliency in studying challenges through the narrative). I also would've liked to know more about Ms. Blackwell's back story and why she is so insightful about her own situation, without giving away anything from the narrative.
“In fact, every morning when you get up you have a choice: to serve, or to be served. Putting your own interest ahead of those of your people and your organization is an ever-present danger that the best leaders work to avoid.”
They further suggest, to grow as a leader, we need to understand two aspects of leadership and more importantly, in their word, to serve others:
“The first aspect is vision/direction. If your people don’t know where they’re going, there’s very little chance they’ll get there. “
“Once you’ve decided where you want to go, the second part of leadership-implementation-kicks in. Now the question is ‘How are we going to get there?’ To get where you’re going, you hate to serve others so they have the skills and competencies needed for the journey.”

Top international reviews
describes situations in a realistic way and makes the theory easy to apply
useful background reading for leadership course at university
Grow Leaders grow is another wonderful book by Ken. Those who have no time to read bulky text books on leadership can read this book of less than 200 pages in short period and grasp key principles of developing leaders.
People understand better when the principles are taught through stories. Ken is extremely good at telling stories which are very interesting. In this book Ken also gave a synopsis at the the end of each chapter as 'take-away' from the chapter and a 'recap' of the key message from the story covered in the chapter.
I recommend this book for every corporate executive who always run short of time to brush up their understanding in the shortest possible time.
We need to agree that, to be simple is pretty difficult.
