Feirer's field guide gives practical advice about developing an authentic, effective “leader face.” Emerging leaders can save themselves from professional missteps; veterans will find themselves reminded of essential principles. "How to Use This Book" suggests four ways to use this guide for professional development, ranging from the quick and timely to reflecting with the aid of someone who can provide in-depth feedback. I'd suggest another: Alan's stories capture the essence of his points and make it easy to see how leadership decisions work (or don't work) in action. Readers can use the stories as benchmarks for what to do (or not to do). They can also use the stories as models for responding to the feedback questions at the end of each short section. Stories can distill what has been learned into its essentials. They can also have sequels, reminding us that learning to be a leader is an ongoing journey. Feirer reminds us that a leader is not a finished product, but a person in process, and he provides solid support for the process of developing leadership skills.
This book is totally not corny! Which means that reading it was totally not "work." It means a lot to me to find myself deeper into this book, and more readily implementing its tools than I have been in the same amount of reading time with other books of this genre. The lessons and tools are down to earth, and I especially appreciate the push to consult on the lessons of this book with a trusted person in your life for outside perspective. Absolutely worth $15. Looking forward to what's to come from Alan Feirer.
Alan also provides a comprehensive way to use his field guide. He is not content with you buying the book and putting in on your shelf. He wants you to use it, learn from it, and improve in the ways you need to as an individual. There are nuggets of wisdom you will gain the first time through and many more that will become part of you with time.
