Brian's latest book provides a complete roadmap for becoming a successful leader in this phenomenal new release for 2010. This book delivers a powerful, perfect blueprint for leadership success in today's tough economic climate, with detailed tactics (including military analogies) that are necessary to succeed in today's business world.

Having bought all of Brian's books and videos, and having become very successful over the last decades thanks to what he's taught me, I can heartily recommend this latest one as a thoughtful, action-oriented resource for managers, executives, entrepreneurs and anyone else involved in growing and leading a business enterprise.

Thanks again, Brian - this book is a perfect checklist for what leaders should be doing in uncertain times, to lead towards values/vision/mission with clarity, focus, determination and success.

I've read hundreds of books covering the subject of "leadership" over the years; most of them have been worthy efforts. This one, by Brian Tracy is as good as it gets.

Tracy's goal is to make the reader a more effective leader by discussing the proven strategies that consistently get superior results, time and time again. As he addresses each issue, he delivers some straightforward advice, often using military analogies to make his point; after all, survival in the business world depends on having a leader who is focused on the mission at hand, and is able to get the "troops" to execute their tasks, swiftly and effectively. This requires a tremendous amount of effective communication to gain the necessary collaboration to make things happen. Indecisiveness won't cut the mustard.

In the end, the reader will come away with a very clear understanding of the qualities of effective leadership; master these techniques, and you'll more than likely stay on the right course for long-term success, in any endeavor. In the highly competitive world of 21st century business, those who fail to lead effectively, will perish; are you motivated now?

Mr. Tracy uses language that is clear and understandable, and that imparts a sense of camaraderie, as he shares his experience in leadership with us as well as the tools necessary to achieve excellence in ourselves and others on our team. In today's economy, it is more important than ever that we take a step back and reexamine ourselves, as well as those on our team, to ensure that we accomplish our goals in achieving sales and growth, which naturally results in increased profitability.

The importance of clarity is addressed, as well as keeping things simple and measurable which allows us to achieve goals and chart progress. Do those on your team understand your point of view and your objectives?
