Overall, the book would probably be good if you are just beginning your quest into leadership development, however, if you've studied it before, I wouldn't waste my time on it.
Ritch also leads by example: Proceeds from the sale of Real Leaders Don't Boss will be donated to not-for-profit organizations that are caring for U.S. Military men and women who were wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan.
If you aspire to help others, lead others or improve yourself, read this book.
well-written and thus is easy to follow. Years of effective leadership
practices by the author have made this book one everyone who wants to
improve his or her leader skills should read. The fact that proceeds from
the sale of the book are being donated to organizations caring for our
wounded war veterans says it all! Whether you're a new CEO of a small or
large organization or a middle manager on your way up or a student
fascinated with leadership, you'll learn valuable practices--those to use
AND those to avoid. What I also particularly like about this book is that it
applies to those of us in either the for-profit world or the not-for-profit
world as the author draws great examples from both perspectives.
What is the how of how to do it? This book attacks just this problem.
I particularly liked the chapter on "Real Leaders know the difference between character and integrity". Character is about values and our moral compass. Integrity is about doing what you say you will do. Both are critical leadership traits.
It is a good book that should be a must read for any leader. My wonder is if the ones that will read it are the ones that do not need to and the ones that should read it don't.
