I probably would have rated it higher if these hadn't been incorporated.
I found them excessive and irritating.
Other than that a good business book.
It's well worth finding someone to buddy-up with to provide you with both support and challenge as you do the excellent exercises and to compare notes with as you each learn to flex your leadership muscles.
Highly recommended for people at all levels in an organisation or, indeed, those who want to demonstrate more leadership outside the workplace.
It sets out a framework for making a difference. While reading it, I repeatedly found that I was wanting to shout in agreement at the pages - asking why everyone doesn't operate in this way. However, there is no sense of 'isn't it a bit obvious'. The book pulls together an approach that I am applying to my work and life.
I also find the unassuming and informal style means it feels achievable, not just to the enthusiasts who love devouring leadership books, but to us mere mortals as well!
What I love most is Steve's explanation that we have all naturally managed to be good leaders in things we love - it's about understanding why we delivered and using that to be at your best more of the time.
This is a book I feel I will keep referring to over the years as I develop my leadership muscles - I highly recommend it to all.
1) Very well structured and quick and easy to read, not at all esoteric!
2) Lots of practical stuff to work on so it can become your leadership companion.
I read the comment about it being light on self limiting beliefs and think that is right. However, one of the tenets in this book is that leadership is about looking to the future not the past or present, so I understand why that would be the case.
Definitely recommend but like all these things buying the book is not going to make you a better leader - only applying what you learn will!
