This book is presented in a very common sense everyday approach that is both sensible and practical. Anyone who reads this book will go...ahh that makes so much sense.

This book was recommended by a friend and I did enjoy reading it. It gives specific information on leadership and explains how a leader should interact with staff.

Having been through Six-Sigma Lean education and training, I do appreciate this book. The concepts, ideas, and insights are very familiar and I agree! The narratives and examples are poignant and meaningful. I agree with the statement in the book, "Leadership is not a license to do less; it is a responsibility to do more." Easy to read. Easy to understand.

I love the insight and research into why we behave a certain way and how to lead because of these factors.

I recently had someone quote this idea to me, presuming that, because they ate last, they were somehow going to make good decisions for our team. However, when the bill came, this individual kinda looked around waiting for the troops to "engage". Frankly, the leader pays the tab. I don't care when he eats.

After being very impressed with "Start With Why" this book is very disappointing.
