You'll never see squirrels in quite the same light after reading Mr. Boswell's astute (and totally enjoyable) observations about the leadership traits of these furry little buggers. I think every company should give a copy to their employees - enough with old stuffy leadership books which all say the same thing, right? Bravo to Len Boswell - and the squirrels!

If you're looking for an alternative yet effective guide to leadership in very digestible chunks of wisdom, this is a great choice. Each chapter is just a couple of pages (almost like a Leadership Tip-of-the-Day) making it easy and enjoyable to flip back and forth between tips and apply them to your day or a current challenge. I worked with Len Boswell for more than 13 years, so I know his leadership secrets come from decades of hands-on experience and expertise. If you want chest-thumping, rah rah cliche's that we've heard a million times, you won't find it here. What you will find is an alternative, intellectual, genuine, and truly effective approach to leadership. You'll enjoy the wisdom and fun of Old Skugg that opens each chapter, too!

Golden Nuggets from the book that may not have heard before: Never let a consultant's vision replace yours; Leaders are sensitive to changing conditions and readily embrace change, even when it means giving up "nests" that have served them well; Things that come easily must be examined as intensely as things that come hard; Seeking excellence in all things, whether from people or from business operations, is a fool's game; Success is just another form of change--embrace it, for it is a rare commodity; Being a leader does not mean being above a situation, but being in a situation; Lead in areas you know, let others lead in areas you don't know.

Len was the VP of Publishing for the American Diabetes Association for 13 years and while no challenge was too big for him, there were no tasks that were too small, either. Many times I saw him get on his hands and knees in exhibit booths and unpack and pack books from boxes with the rest of us (usually after he had just attended an upper management team meeting with the organization's top leadership).
