This is one of a series of pocket-books aimed at managers which now number over sixty. They are a convenient size to keep in your jacket and flip through while waiting for a train.
The presentation is light and cheerful and as is the fashion much use is made of icons, bullet points and little questionnaires to work through. It is really a little workbook to dip into for inspiration and ideas rather than providing an in-depth read. Lots of pithy quotes, maxims and soundbites to help keep the tone upbeat and friendly.
The only drawback I found with this book was a feeling of frustration that interesting points are not explained or justified. But in a book of this size I suppose there is a limit to how much detail can be given. Leadership is now in vogue and is going to be a major issue in all organisations in the coming years. And this little book provides a simple overview and introduction.
If you like the idea of getting ahead of your colleagues, need a few tips for promotion or just like getting familiar with current ways of organisational thinking then take a closer look...
