Publisher's Summary

Winner of Business Book of the Year Award 2020: Leadership for the Future
A Financial Times Business Book of the Month

Leadership is not some special club, open only to elites. It's not a gold star given to those with fancy titles and expensive degrees. Leadership is what we all try to do every day.

Based on the author's hard-won experience as a Global CEO, this smart, fun book delivers a step-by-step working manual on how to lead - for anyone. Full of simple and direct approaches, it demystifies an over-analysed subject to get to the heart of modern leadership: the life-changing, career-transforming power to get stuff done

These principles and actionable steps apply to every field, from small businesses to community initiatives, from schools to sports teams to global enterprises. No matter your goal, this book will show you how to:

  • make effective decisions
  • build a world-class team
  • take care of yourself and others
  • achieve results

Simple but not easy

There’s not a lot of fat in this book. If you’re a highlighter of key phrases you’d need to dip the whole thing in fluorescent ink. That doesn’t mean it an intellectual or hard listen, it’s not, quite the opposite. This book is practical and full of actual steps you can take to lead better and make your organization and yourself more successful.
A good read.

One of the better leadership books I have come across

I enjoyed every minute of this audiobook. It was concise and to the point and just as the title suggests.

I found it a good summary of many of the other books I have read or listened to, to date, along with a easy to understand and logical suggestion which most should be able to adapt to themselves very easily. Highly recommended.

A grower, worth the wait

I’ve read my fair share of similar books and this stands out for a good reason. It’s evocative in a good way and makes you reflect.
I did learn things and enjoyed the experience.
It still has a fair share of ‘so what’ content but generally worth completing. Give it a try.

listen intensely

Well there are some very good advises and points. I needed to listen this over a few times, because if my mind starts to wander, I get lost in the book. Not my favourite book, but decent enough

So clear, so simple, so very well told.

I have made many teams, mainly small, over many years. This book reinforces the things I’ve experienced as working well, and an explanation for those times when it didn’t workout. I have found it an inspiration: to keep things simple, work hard, know where you are, know where you want to be, and get there, with others. Helping each other be our and their best.
