    <i>Mark Miller</i>
    has done it again ...

    In his fourth book, Mark chips away at my aversion to narrative leadership development by using realistic scenarios, dialogue that sounds like people actually talking, and by communicating a clear message that resonates with me.   I imagine anyone who cares about their personal leadership ability or who is responsible for the leadership development of others, will find much of value in this little fable.

    <b><i>The Heart of Leadership</i></b>
    is a slender book, but one packed with thoughtful and research-based observations about the characteristics and attitudes that make someone a superlative leader.   As the subtitle suggests, the best leaders have followers who are with them voluntarily and enthusiastically.

    I won't spoil the message by listing either the five core attributes or any of the many highly quotable points made by Mark as he spins a tale of a young leader who has lost his way.   Somewhat channeling Mitch Albom, Miller's hero seeks the guidance of an older and wiser person, who directs him to five people who each share part of what he seeks.

    Perhaps the most intriguing person in the book is the hero's father, who we never meet directly, since he dies before the start of the book.  Regardless, his influence is everywhere,in every key character, and in the message of this little gem of a leadership development tool.

    Buy it, read it, reflect on it, share it, discuss it ... you cannot fail to learn and grow as a leader once you open the cover and read the first page.
