Publisher's Summary

PLEASE NOTE: This audiobook was previously published under the title It's Not About You.

From the acclaimed, best-selling authors of The Go-Giver, a new parable about the power of giving leadership.

The family-owned business of Allen & Augustine has manufactured high-quality chairs for decades. Its people take pride in their work and feel loyal to their owners and management team. But this long-revered company is now at a crossroads, hurt by a tough economy, foreign competition, and a cash crunch. The air is filled with the scent of uncertainty, anxiety, perhaps even panic.

Enter Ben, the ambitious young executive assigned by his firm to promote a merger that will rescue Allen & Augustine. Ben's facts are undeniable: The chairmaker can either merge and modernize or go bankrupt and vanish. So why can't he convince anyone to buy in, from the CEO on down?

During his week at the company, as Ben gets to know its people and meets with its top executives, he begins to realize that his aggressive style is actually making it harder to reach his goals. As one character puts it, "How far can you push a rope?"

Will Ben find a way to sway the employee shareholders before the climactic vote? And can Allen & Augustine survive without losing its soul? The answers may surprise you as you follow Ben on his journey to understanding that the path to genuine influence lies less in taking leadership than in giving it.

    Story
    "Tremendous insight written in a story form"

    I really enjoyed the Go-Giver and The Go-Giver Leader didn't disappoint. It adds on to the first book but reading/listening to the first book isn't required to glean from this book.

    Since the book is written in a story form, it is an easy listen with take away points throughout the book and at the end. The narration is very good filled with a few memorable characters and my overall favorite is the 'aunt'.

    Not only does the book illustrate the essence of a leader but it outlines the characteristics in a manner that stays with the reader/listener without feeling 'scolded'.

    I highly recommend this book.
