"The Leader Who Had No Title" tells the story of Blake Davis, a veteran of the war in Iraq who is drifting along at his job, feeling disconnected from his work, from his relationship, and from life in general. One day an extraordinary character walks into his life. This eccentric old man knew Blake's father, and undertakes to transform his perspective on what really matters in business and in life. He introduces Blake to four master teachers, including a hotel maid, a former athlete and sports shop owner, a former corporate CEO turned gardener, and a massage therapist. Each one gives Blake an intensive lecture worthy of any MBA curriculum, chock full of psychological and spiritual insights, and tied to acronyms that recap the points in their lessons. The story lines felt a bit forced at the time, but in retrospect, I appreciate those devices, because they brought life to a wealth of business and life wisdom that could have been overwhelming. By putting it all in a real-life context, it was easy to absorb and integrate. How many business books do you remember, hmm? What I most appreciate about the book is Sharma's very spiritual interpretation of success. As one of the top leadership coaches in the country, I was delighted to find a philosophy that would be right at home in don Miguel Ruiz's "The Four Agreements". Sharma urges each of us to find balance in our inner lives to give us the energy to launch our gifts into the world. He encourages us to look at our work and our surroundings with fresh eyes, and see the possibility in every situation, and to do our best. We don't need titles or degrees - just find what needs to be done, whether at work or in the world, and do it. Another aspect of the book that impressed me was the integrity of the message. It is not about quick fixes or shortcuts to success. It is a game plan for success that needs to be followed consistently over time. Sharma offers us the distillation of his enormous wisdom to show how each of us can be a leader in our own sphere and inspire those around us. This is a powerful book on the kind of leadership we need in the world by a leader who walks his talk. If we heed Sharma's call to be this change, collectively we can make a more wonderful world.

Robin writes an entertaining parable and reminds us of what we've probably learned from other leadership books. But he modernizes it and keeps it fresh and relevent for today's workforce. I enjoyed this book and was reminded again that sometimes success isn't rocket science; but you still have to study, show up and do the little things that make people great.
