Customer Review

on October 27, 2012
A well written book on both the basic and advance levels of effective leadership. This book will challenge you to new heights while giving you a solid plan to create an excellent, ethical, and enduring self and company. All the chapters are gems. My personal favorite (which was very hard to choose) was chapter 2 ("Head and Heart") which gives vital steps to follow to create a winning team (a fantastic read). Each chapter closes with a section that contains in-depth questions (don't skip over them!) If you read this book slowly and savor each chapter, you can't help but grow professionally.

Another personal favorite chapter (remember, all the chapters are great), is entitled "Breakdowns." This chapter explores the darker side of leadership...basically the failures that occur from time to time. The books authors, Bob Vanourek and Gregg Vanourek, do a great job describing various breakdowns that have recently taken place in major companies, along with steps to avoid such disasters. Be sure to take notes!

In the final chapter of the appendix, the authors state the following: "Our goal was to employ a reasonable apprach for unpacking leadership lessons from a wide array of organizations and settings to supplement our own experience and thinking. We hope you find value in the final product."

Mission accomplished, Bob and Gregg Vanourek...mission accomplished!
