First of all I do not agree with author that you can train a person to become a leader. However, i also do not agree that leaders are born, not trained. My view is that some people come into the world with the seed of leadership within and because of circumstances and/or opportunities they never rise to their potential. As the late business guru, Jim Rohn always said: " You can't send a duck to eagle school".

Ian Jolliffe's book in my view is for companies to use in finding those people in their teams that have the seed of leadership within and help them blossom into the leader they were designed to become.

The author talks about important characteristics a leader must have: honest being top of the list. I agree 100% because trust is the currency of the 21st century and this starts with being honest. Ian Jolliffe goes onto list and explain other traits a leader must develop such as courage, being able to make decisions, confidence, sound judgement, approachable, organised, not perfect & people focused.

He then makes a very wise statement a number of times throughout the book: "Take out the emotion but maintain the passion".
This is something I have found VERY useful in business and in people management.

He then goes onto list some very useful checklists and templates to use in developing your team. one of these been weekly or monthly one to one interviews where the first question is about them and how their family is.

The book is a quick read and I reckon a valuable tool for leadership development. I highly recommend ian Jolliffe's work, another Stephen Covey in the making!

The author presents examples and scenarios that will be immediately recognisable to the reader from their own work experiences, and then provides practical solutions to these common leadership problems. I especially like the fact that the book is deliberately concise and gets straight to the point, as well as having space for personal notes and useful exercises along the way. Highly recommended.

I bought this book for myself and have just come back to buy more as gifts for colleagues and friends,
I have worked for 30 years in car showrooms and seen talented people fail again and again for the lack of a little guidance. Not because they didn't have the ability but because they didn't understand some simple principles and nobody took the time to support them in the transition from being the best in their previous role to being leaders in a new role. This book could have saved countless careers!
It's a quick, simple read. Uncluttered and concise, nobody could say they didn't have the time to read it. If you're on the first rung of management or an experienced and accomplished man-manager, there will be something in this book for you!

As a business owner and a company director in another firm it is always important to assess and minimise business risks to ensure the success of the business. This typically involves insurance of plant and equipment and often insuring key people.

However, very few companies focus on their staff and pay attention to their importance in the success of the business. With employees usually being the most expensive asset in a business it is important to devote the relevant level of resources for their development and motivation.

Ian Jolliffe's book Transform Your Business By Friday: 9 Steps To Take Your Leadership, Your Team, Your Company To The Next Level concentrates on this area.

The 9 steps provide every business owner with the opportunity to engage all their employees and actively involve them in the business to the benefit of the company. The great thing about the content of this book is that it is simple sensible information that can be used to good effect again and again.

This book is an essential tool for all business owners who want to run a successful business.
