Great except the last chapter!

I really enjoy listening to great speakers but I don’t like when every five minutes there is a little jingle of music and then the speaker continues. That was the case with the last chapter of this audio and it was almost unbearable. Otherwise everything was fantastic and I definitely recommend it!

Each chapter a new "old best of dialog"

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd skip this one as it bounces around with little continuity - no flow. Also they've put in commercials - something I'm not too thrilled about - even if they only last 45 secs.

Well Rounded Leadership Book

Some of the people referenced in this book have fallen from grace in their leadership roles. While others have stood the test of time. Long audio but, good reference.

what is leadership

John Maxwell was surprisingly dry but good info. Les as always entertaining, insightful, full of mother wit and horse sense. Dr Sheila Bethel was previously unknown to me. Her style is a little light and fluffy to me but she has nuggets of knowledge and truth hidden in the fluff that gave me pause to think and consider. an easy book to read or listen to with pearls of goodness within. I will revisit this book from time to time.

Too many broken ideas

Didn't recognize anybody here except John Maxwell. And his session was hard to hear.

Found too many different speakers with different ideas.

Struggled to finish!

You will learning things.

Overall a really good listen. I felt the last chapter was weak as it was really just a list of people who accomplished things without speaking to how they were a leader.
