Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read this book if you lead people This is an excellent read, well worth the time of leaders. It's meant to be digested so be prepared to read and re-read parts of the book. The chapters are stand alone and you can benefit from them with going through the whole book. I like Colin's conversational style and also the leadership wisdom he has summarized in this book. I'm a certified John Maxwell leadership Speaker and consultant; Colin's book covers the very important "How to." of leadership and John Maxwell's leadership philosophies provide the wider framework and laws of leadership to guide a leaders path. I really enjoyed this reading and highly recommend it for leaders. You may not apply everything from the military perspective to your leadership situation but this book will surely give you some ways to make your leadership ability more powerful.
