The successful self-published author of The Sales Leaders Playbook writes his first mainstream leadership book.
There are enormous differences between managing and coaching. Yet many companies and organizations encourage their leaders to coach teams without ever teaching them how and without creating a culture that supports coaching.
Nathan Jamail, a leading consultant, professional speaker, and the president of his own group of businesses, trains coaches at several Fortune 500 companies and learned that it takes not only different skills to achieve success, but a truly effective coach needs an organizational culture that creates and multiplies the success of every motivated team member. The Leadership Playbook shows leaders the skills necessary to be an effective coach and to build effective teams by:
Combining research, interviews, and inspiring stories with the lessons that have earned Jamail the respect of the world's foremost corporations including CISCO, FedEx, Sprint, the U.S. Army, and State Farm, The Leadership Playbook will dominate the category for years to come.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Leadership Playbook to be better than the print version?
I would highly encourage purchasing the physical book as the points made can be a helpful reference.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The story about cleaning the chairs was a powerful lesson. Many times we treat things like items on a list that we check off. Don't do things just to get them done, complete the task correctly so that you know you've done an excellent job.
Any additional comments?
This book truly helps a person build their leadership game plan from the ground up.
listening to this book hit a nerve... coaching and practicing are very important. thank you
Great listen for all levels of management. Straight forward and recaps after each chapter.
Great hearing the author reading it; similar to going to him speak. Already shared it with 5 others.
Fantastic practices that are easily implemented into my business to help my team succeed and make more money.
This book introduces a new way of thinking about management and is an easy read. I highly recommend it! Great for those new to management and experts!
I wish I had read this book 30 years ago! Though, it wasn't available then, the message is so incredibly impactful. 'Just went and ordered 60 copies for the leadership teams at 12 Installations. The distinction between being a leader and being a coach is one message we have overlooked for far too long. Thanks!
There are a lot of tools that are taught in this book. The author did a great job keeping the reader/listener's attention. I recommend this book for any newly appointed manager.
