While I have been a fan of Jon Gordon’s work for many years, when I recently finished reading “The Power of Positive Leadership,” my response was simply “wow!” My immediate thought was that certainly those in formal leadership positions should read this book but not just managers, directors, officers, etc., but anybody, I mean anybody, who has leadership responsibilities should read and study this book. For me, one measure of the “greatness” of a book is how many notes I take in the back of the book. The back page that I use for my notes is completely full!
Mr. Gordon captures what I believe could be the basic competencies needed to be a leader. For example, what do you as a leader stand for (page 19)? Do you inspire and empower one person at a time (p. 40)? He emphasizes the importance of truly connecting with those who follow, following your passion and living your purpose, believing in others more than they sometimes believe in themselves, pursuing excellence (rather than focusing on a finish line), and so much more.
Near the end of the book he writes, “Yes, there’s a lot of negativity in the world. Yes, there are many problems that haven’t been solved yet. But instead of focusing on all that’s wrong, you can realize that this is your time to make things right” (p. 185).
I am involved in formal leadership development programs, and I do think this should be required reading for anybody in “formal” leadership. And, this book spoke personally to me in terms of what I can do every day to help make things right and not be an “energy vampire.” I only hope it speaks to others as much as it spoke to me.
