About the Author
Col. Dandridge M. (Mike) Malone, US Army (Ret.), began his army career as a private and ended as a colonel almost 30 years later. During that time, he earned a BS degree from Vanderbilt University and an MS from Purdue, and graduated from the Army Command and General Staff College and the Army War College. Renowned as the army’s leading expert on leadership, both in garrison and in combat, he has taught the subject to noncommissioned officers, West Point cadets, and students at various army service schools to include the Army War College. An audiotape he prepared on leadership, Soldier, has some 50,000 copies in circulation among army troop units worldwide. He died in 1995.

I cannot say enough about this book. It tremendously enhanced by leadership skills. It has pretty much everything you need to know for An O-3 and below. I would encourage all E-2's and above to read this book and apply it. This really is a common sense approach that has enduring value. This serves as more than a book to read, it is more of a handbook. I referenced it several times over the course of years until I had everything "perfected".
Trust me, as a 13 year active duty veteran and senior enlisted, this is the book you are looking for.
Quite simply, Small Unit Leadership is a training manual for leadership. I've never been in the military, but feel this leadership guide translates just as well to the business world. It's not like those fluffy, self-helpish books generally written for business leadership. (You know the ones: more feel-good stories, less substance). Think about it, no other organization has made a systematic study of leadership the way the military has. I can picture myself teaching from this book as a textbook someday in a leadership course in business school.
The book is written in a clear and concise manner. It lays out in detail the purpose of leadership, how to develop your subordinates, how to understand their styles and develop high performing teams, followed by a detailed list of "how to's."
