Master Your World is a quick read, but there is plenty of substance. For instance, in Lesson 3, Dr. Kelly describes three lessons that puppies learn by the time they are 8 weeks old. She then relates the lessons from the litter to the workplace: respect the boss, adapt around others, and actions have consequences. She turns these lessons into leadership lessons by showing how leaders commonly undermine their own leadership through inconsistent behaviors.
Part of Mary Kelly's brilliance is in the presentation and the style. Mary lures you into reading the book, and it is only after you finish it that you suddenly find yourself using the techniques she described, and you are suddenly a better leader. I watch this happen with one of the CEOs I coach - in a day, he was better with his people. I went to Mary's website [...] and also got the accompanying workbook - also brilliant.
I am therefore amazed and delighted to have been won over by the distinctive Kelly Brand of canine-inspired command skills.
The real secret of this book's success is that it is elegantly simple without ever being simplistic. Kelly manages to boil down her massive experience into a series of practical techniques that are both accessible and compelling, even in the highest-pressure situations. She has given us a privileged snapshot of methods that were clearly honed while carrying out senior leadership roles in the equally hazardous worlds of academia and the US Navy.
To all of you Dog Lovers: read it and purr.
