"Self-Improvement 101" could have just as easily been titled "Growth 101" as the book is basically a framework around how to intentionally grow yourself - and particularly your leadership abilities. As with most of the "101" series of books, we get a condensed summary of material that has appeared in his other books (this one borrows heavily from "Failing Forward"), but it is very successful in providing you with the nuts-and-bolts required to intentionally focus your growth in the areas that will provide the best results. For me, the most valuable pieces were around the concept of sacrifice in order to grow (you must give up something in order to truly grow - you can't do everything) and the discussion around the risk of failure. Picking items to sacrifice in order to move on was a new concept for me...and probably will result in some of the most difficult decisions I'll ever make. A short and valuable read that will make you think about how your are managing your personal growth.
