Summary: Good News to Use at My Level
By Jeffrey W. Bennett, ISP, author of ISP Certification-The Industrial Security Professional Exam Manual and Under the Lontar Palm
Not many leadership books are written for lower level leaders. This book is. I have experienced different levels of leadership and only wish that I had known about The Leader years ago.
My company is currently teaching Leadership 101 to internal employees and reading The Leader is a pre-requisite. The Leader has exercises that map out how to lead the team, create vision, and achieve goals. Not surprisingly, it accurately identifies some of the interaction that you and your team will experience during the journey.
The Leader is a MUST HAVE resource within reach and not on the shelf.
Summary: The Leader: Developing The Skills & Personal Qualities You N
As the Instructor of a course in Leadership at a major university in Philadelphia, I have found that Frigon's book to be the perfect text book for several reasons. First of all, it is an easy-reader, straight forward,not swimming with pretentious philosophical babble that could turn-off young college students. Secondly, it spells out with clarity the many important dynamics of leadership, team work, and visioning in a (step by step) process that clearly explains these concepts in practical, applicable terms. This is great for those who may be unfamiliar with the concepts of leadership and management, yet the book in no way oversimplifies these concepts for experienced executives or educators; rather it helps the experienced manager to redefine his/her pracitices of leadership by offering many hands-on techniques that will never become obselete. These principles and practices help to continually develop the skills that are needed to maintain the pole position in one's personal and professional life. Thirdly, Frigon's book is concise and precise proving that you don't need a whole lotta pages to get to the point. This is also great in terms of teaching. Students have read this book comprehensively two or three times per semester...on their own...as an on-going guide like none other. And lastly...the price is right... buy two.. give one as a gift to someone who is hungry for success...Excellent! Nothing more to say.
