Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Leadership Herein As a leader, I ask myself, as much as I'm asked, 'How do I exert effective leadership?' In other words: How do I maintain control while continuing to operate my organization efficiently & effectively, without giving myself a stroke in the process?! I'd be lying if I said it was innate to my genes, or I learned it in the crib along with mobiles and mother's milk... This book by Dr. Bart is a Huge reason for my success, and really the best organizational book I've come across since some of Drucker's works in the 1980s. And more condensed, too! Chris simplifies this mightily for us----he breaks it down to 4 Questions>>> the answers to which set me on a course at once so obvious (why didn't I think of it, right?), yet so profound in the changes it wrought upon my company once implemented. I'd bet nickels to nuts any serious manager'll have a similar 'Revelation' with this book as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great How To Book When discussing this book with several of my work book club members we concurred that this book was very useful in terms of 'how to' get employees to live out a company mission. We also found that this book opens discussion on employee engagement. Furthermore, this book is inspirational for those who would like to know how to affect change for a small group. A definite must read for HR professionals.
