What makes this book unique is the breadth of topics discussed. It really serves as a primer for anyone looking to navigate his way through the corporate world. While it is hard to summarize the many learnings contained within this book, below are some excerpts which I found particularly profound:
-"When you are an individual contributor, you try to have all the answers. That's your job...When you are a leader, your job is to have all the questions."
-On Change " 1- Attach very change initiative to a clear purpose or goal. Change for change's sake is stupid and enervating. 2- Hire and promote only true believers and get-on-with-it types. 3- Ferret out and get rid of resisters, even if their performance is satisfactory. 4- Look at car wrecks."
-" The 4-E (And 1-P) Framework - The first E is positive energy. -The second E is the ability to energize others. - The third E is edge, the courage to make tough yes-or-no decisions. - Which leads us to the fourth E - execute - the ability to get the job done. - If a candidate has the four Es, then you look for that final P - passion.
Given the scope of the book, one can't expect that it covers each of the topics in depth. What it does though, is server as an eye openers on areas/aspects of one's career that were perhaps missed/over-looked.
If you had to read one book this year, I would recommend Winning!
