"An Audio PowerPoint"
According to the summary, you will "Learn the leadership skills to build a better, more profitable business."
This book has precious little skill-building. It is more like an audio PowerPoint presentation: a series of bullet points presented with little explanation of how to integrate them into leadership behaviors. The bullet points may have been useful in a printed book, as one could then take time to meditate upon a few at a time. As an audiobook it doesn't work.
On top of that the audio quality is very poor, making the book more annoying than useful.
"Beautyfull insights on leadership"
I must have listened to this book at least 10 times. Max DePree shows some beautyfull insights on the subject of leadership. He states in the beginning of the book that " this book is not a how to book, but more a why to book ". I higly recommend this book :-)
"excellent book written by a excellent leader"
There are lots of nuggets in this book that a person can take away, be it how lead or how to personally grow.
An extremely inspirational piece of literature that defines the reality of leadership. Not a how-to book; much more open ended. This book paints with words a reality that takes years and years to grasp. It is an open door to a landscape to explore and discover. Highly recommended.
Important message! It's just that other people tell it better, like Conscious CapItalism, Dan Pink, and Simon Sinek.
I enjoyed reading this book and reflecting on what I can work on to be a more effective leader and how I can be open to the gifts of others.
"More then I expected, I feel that I am real!!!!"
For this being my first book to read as an adult I am so pleased with my life and the direction my calling is taking me.
