Leadership based upon the ability to understand others and how to get the best from others is vitally important in every business. One of the most important attributes a leader can have is to understand their own limitations and then seek advice from all those around them. This is where this book comes in and fills the potential gap in a leaders knowledge with practical advice that will help stimulate business growth. It gives advice on a plethora of potential/common business problems and issues. The advice offered is very sound and based upon real business situations and examples. It is really a magnificent compendium of ideas and strategies drawn from the analysis of 20 leading global companies, examining how they tackled the issues that the authors address. It examines the key elements, strategies and ideas that have made the companies successful and growth driven. The core ideas are very well laid out and the authors do a great job and using relevant examples. I think the book is excellent and should be read by anyone interested in generating growth within their business.
I adore this book as it is easy to read and very engaging. It is full of practical and usable ideas that should help any established or aspiring leader to take their organisation to a new level of growth.
There have been lots of books like this which champion currently successful companies only to see them rapidly underperform. The book `The Halo Effect' is very good at highlighting the problems with this kind of analysis.
This is quite a quick read and it can be quite inspiring. Many of the behaviours it champions probably are quite useful but you shouldn't really fall for the hype. The real reasons why certain organisations are successful are probably very different than that these types of books normally claim.
