Leadership is alive when it is used for others. It dies when it is all about you. Anyone can make an impact. All you need is influence - the most potent professional asset on the planet. The problem is that influence is also the most underused asset on the planet. And the primary reason is that the enemy of influence is a universal human trait: self-preservation. You guard your ideas, your status, and your reputation. Within your self-constructed walls you must cast safer visions, take smaller risks, and accept shallower relationships to ensure the security of all you are protecting. This is the downside of self-preservation: While your walls protect you and yours from demise, they also restrict your influence. You must break down your walls of self-preservation and sacrifice your security for the sake of others. Only then does the escalating paradox of personal generosity come into play: The more you give, the more you receive.

Any additional comments?
This book brings humanity back to leadership. Too often, people in leadership positions respond to numbers, pressures, and deadlines rather than the authentic needs of their followers. Leadership is Dead explains how to get the same desired outcomes in a more personal, relational way.
This book isn't marketed as a religious book but it is. It has some pretty good information, but he focuses way too much on religion for my taste.
