The real value comes when, as a leader, you start seeing examples of some of the situations and, while maybe not using the book as a playbook, you lean on some of the lessons to form your own approach.
I'm normally pretty opposed to leadership books, but this one at least didn't waste my time.
A very easy, enjoyable and educative read, full of management/leadership gems. Highly recommended.
Below are the key learnings - as excerpted from the book:
1- "Be A Driver - Until you accept total responsibility - no matter what - you will not be able to put plans in place to accomplish your goals. Transitioning from manager to leader requires you make difference decisions."
2- "People have different perceptions of what the main thing is. People quit people before they quit companies."
3- "First, hire good employees. Second, coach ever member of the team to become better. And third, dehire the people who aren't carrying their share f the load."
4- "Get out of management land. Get in touch with your people. Your job is not to lower the bottom by adjusting and accommodating the falling starts. You should be raising the top by recognizing and rewarding superstar behaviors."
5- "Do the right thing - Develop your action plan before you get into a crisis. Guard integrity like it's your most precious management possession."
6- "Hire Tough - The most important asset in your company is having the Right People on your team. Never lower your standards just to fill a position! You will pay later."
7- "Do Less/Work Faster - Your time is your responsibility. Take control of your time so you can take control of your life. Look for small increments of time by prioritizing, limiting interruptions, and effectively managing meetings."
8- "Fill lots of buckets - 4 ways to fill buckets: know the main things, give feedback on performance, provide recognition, communicate the team score. The more buckets you fill, the more your bucket is filled."
9- "Jeff's Leadership commitments. I am responsible for my actions and my team's performance, no matter what the circumstances. I keep the main thing the main thing. I have a positive relationship with my boss. I escape from management land and stay in tune with my people. I recognize and reward superstar activity. I address problems in a pro-active manner. I do what's right even when no one is watching. I realize that everything I do counts toward my leadership score. I hire tough. I am an excellent time manager. I fill others buckets. "
10- "Live in the learning zone - get our of the comfort zone. Read 10 minutes a day. Listen to people. Give back. Set goals. Stay positive."
11- "For you to be the very best, you cannot allow yourself to become complacent in your comfort zone. You need to be reaching for improvement."
12- "So much of life is about attitude and how we handle what life throws our way. Life is good - even when a situation appears to be the worst."
