Title: The Leader Who Had No Title…
Author: Robin Sharma
Verdict: One of the better personal development/leadership fables I have read.
Much Better Than: Who Moved My Cheese?
I’m not a fan of business fables. Maybe it’s a cultural difference between America and New Zealand but I put business fables in the same category as reality TV shows such as The Biggest Loser and The Apprentice. I often find them simplistic, superficial and somehow lacking in credibility.
The Leader Who Had No Title is however a step above this and espouses four “dare to do different” insights.
- You need no title to be a leader.
- Turbulent times build great leaders.
- The deeper your relationships, the stronger your leadership.
- To be a great leader, first become a great person.
Although the effusive praise and positive affirmations are a tad overdone for my liking this book is one of the better personal development/leadership fables I have read.
With baby boomers retiring within the next decade, leadership is becoming more and more important to the profession. Start your leadership journey now with this book.
