In this short, easy-to-listen fable, best-selling author Mark Miller reveals five habits that underlie leadership character and that determine a leader's success - and he teaches leaders how to develop these habits.
Like Miller's previous books, this one follows the life, learning, and influence of Debbie Bruster. Here she finds herself mentoring Blake Brown, the son of her former mentor. Rather than answer Blake's questions about leadership directly, Debbie introduces him to other leaders, each of whom shares a unique perspective on what really makes a leader successful. As Blake puts the pieces together, he discovers his problem is not one of skills but of character - that leadership is more about the heart of the leader than the head or hands. In fact, Miller summarized these traits with the acronym HEART: Hunger for Wisdom, Expect the Best, Accept Responsibility, Respond with Courage, and Think Others First.
With the help of his new friends and mentors, Blake is able to build a plan to transform his heart. The good news is that leadership is not just the purview of the few - it is within reach for millions of aspiring leaders around the world.
This book is the road map they need to get their lives and careers on track.
Powerful lessons wrapped in an easy-to-follow narrative that kept us entertained and wanting to learn the next lesson.
When I started reading, I didn't like how it was a conversation( the whole book) but as I reached the second chapter, I started seeing why it was like that. I look forward to talking about it to friends and co workers. A really good quick read.
Great book! Challenges you to be a Servant Leader! I look forward to reading more from Mark Miller!
Good content that will be valuable. Unfortunately I was looking forward to the end of the audio book only a quarter of the way in. I had a very hard time listening to the narrator. His was of halting and dropping tone drew my attention away from the message. It constantly reminded me of Don Adams playing Maxwell Smart, combined with William Shatner.
presented in sorry stole making it now interesting and more easily understood! get it now
Easy to follow and keep up with during morning commute. Narrative was a tad off with the different voices. Message got across. Would definitely recommend it!
