Summary

Learn the proven leadership skills and principles of how to become an effective leader and make everyone around you better!

Leadership is a term that people perceive very differently. Most think of CEOs, managers, and coaches and while that is of course true, it is much more than that. A leader is a person who goes in front of new projects, ideas or trends, and who can direct others towards a common goal. It doesn’t even have to be on a big scale. Remember that teacher who sparked your interest in mathematics or literature? Or your father who motivated you to do your homework when it was difficult? Leaders can be found everywhere in society, and you don’t need a big title to become one. Sometimes you will even have to be a leader without being told to be one.

By implementing the strategies taught, you will definitely maximize your potential as a leader by gaining the respect and trust of those around you. You will become more approachable and easy to work with. Your communication skills will become top-notch and people will find you irresistible, which will open the way for meaningful conversations at work.

Don’t waste any more time doubting yourself. Instead, use this time to become the leader you are really meant to be. Scroll Up and buy this audiobook now!

Concise, powerful advice. Every version improves.

Almost every paragraph in this book had me underline something. This was required for a course I took and I will listen it again! So good!! The concepts in here are useful not just for the workplace, but for all of life. I can't even begin to tell you how valuable this book will be over the course of the rest of my career and life. It helps on personal and professional levels and it such a powerful tool. Very well communicated and they give good points of view from experienced people who have put these principles into practice.

Leadership tips.

I was expecting a book that was not marked up, but the book was completely marked up and had tabs throughout the pages. A very useful guide to effective leadership , giving lots of advice on how to improve EQ and become more productive in your every day life.This guidebook was a great read. It was digestible, yet informative at the same time.

Narrator was strange.

I found it odd that the narrator inhaled his breath so loudly every so many seconds through out the entire book! A little distracting.

Not as expected

Provided details on various definitions and contructs of leadership, but very little context on how to apply, or how to improve communication.

One of the greats

I bought this for a class but wish I had bought this sooner. The authors are well known in the field and the handbook they have created is one of the most complete references I have seen. I recommend this if you are studying leadership, especially as part of a graduate degree.

Helpful book !

Leadership and Self-deception is a quick read that leaves the reader questioning their attitude toward life in general.
The theme of the book is basic, but the methodology of how the theme is portrayed is what shines in this book. The real-life examples allow the reader to put them-self in those situations to judge how they are performing accordingly.

Simple ideas, profound impact.

And lots of resources to pursue. I did not listen this book for its intended purpose (business) but rather as a self-help book.

Simple ideas, profound impact.

Great for leadership. For each commitment, they give examples of what performing above vs below the line would entail. The highlights of this book is their focus on introspection and the importance of self-awareness and honest feedback. In my opinion, the best "commitments" are the ones related to honesty, integrity and focus.

Effective in my life;.

Just finished listen this. It was good and I'm recommending to anyone who wants to be a better leader. It's all about blind spots and improving who we are as leaders. I picked up some great tips and tactics to ensure I was seeing into my blind spots.

Good articles on leadership

This book is easy-listen, easy-referencing, and filled with very resourceful information. I have cited and referenced this text so much that my instructor has requested that I seek other sources. Although I am finding it difficult ween myself off of this text -- I am using it as a guide to research other material
