Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Why Don't They Follow Me? is one of myfavorite books I've written.  The leadership lessons in the book started with my being a guest executive at a leadership class that my formercompany held on a regular basis.  The class was divided into teams offour and given a difficult problem to solve.  The team then had topresent it to a panel of executives whose job it was to give them somereal life experience in what can happen when you present to anexecutive.  There was one presentation where one of the students wastrying to use humor to build rapport with me.  The problem was that henever established credibility with me and the humor just becameannoying.  In my debrief with him I described the experience in terms of a math statement "Humor - Credibility = Doofus", meaning that if you try to use humor with an exec before you've given them a reason tolisten to you then you just come across like a doofus.  The mathstatement resonated well so I decided to express 12 leadershipprinciples as math statements, as follows:
  1. Humor - Credibility = Doofus
  2. Knowledge - Listening = Arrogance
  3. Action - Integrity = Distrust
  4. Activity - Focus = Randomness
  5. Wisdom - Experience = Theory
  6. Ability - Effort = Inaction
  7. Leadership - Inspiration = Administration
  8. Charisma - Conviction = Crooked Politician
  9. Courage - Predictability = Recklessness
  10. Smarts - Direction = Absent-Minded Professor
  11. Communication - Candor = Storyteller
  12. Decisiveness - Empathy = Ruthlessness
In each lesson I give you an opening story, an explanation of the lesson,and some practical takeaways you can put to use right away. I hope youenjoy reading Why Don't They Follow Me? as much as I enjoyed writing it!
Best - Lonnie
