To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Looked for management development books and stumbled across this one. So glad I did. It validated a lot of what I already try to do and gave ideas to refine them and/or implement new ones. Highly recommend!
I purchased this highly-anticipated book after hearing so many good things about it - and - if the truth be told, having had so many friends and colleagues who had already read it cover-to-cover. What appealed to me most: (1) The chunked-out way that this book was designed to read. It almost felt like I was binge-watching a Netflix series that I couldn't stop waiting for the next episode. (2) The overarching messages around how to build trust, be a servant leader; and immediate applicability. I loved trying out new things right away (3) I mean ... it's Randy Conley and Ken Blanchard - so, that's going to be powerful.
Great insights by both authors. Needed a good book to read for a leadership project for work. This was easy to follow along and provided good knowledge to apply as I continue to work on becoming a leader
Ken Blanchard and Randy Conley's collaboration in the Simple Truths of Leadership is one of those books that wise leaders would be well served to read, keep on the nightstand and use as a teaching tool for themselves and their leadership teams. The 52 practices are described in brief, succinct ways to allow the reader to digest, reflect and act on the concept to better serve and lead. This book should be required reading for any leader, coach, or consultant in any organization who wants to add value to those they serve and enhance their leadership practice.
I am a leadership educator and worked with the Blanchard organization for many years. This book is a compilation of many great leadership concepts, with clear and simple language for all leadership levels to understand. I’ll be incorporating many quotes in my current curriculum for 1st level leaders. Thanks Ken!
