"One of the best leadership books I've read"

I just bought the physical book as I will definitely need the hard copy to use as a reference. This is a straight forward book that has great tools and an understanding of leadership.
Karin's blog is full of such rich leadership content, I knew her book Would be gold!
"Manage even 1 person? Read this book!"
